    Cons: slightly soft at 2.8 (when compared to 50/1.2L or 35/1.4L ) significant light-fall-off at corners when fully shifted (+ some loss in sharpness, visible CA)

    Pros: obvious advantegaes of tilt/shift. Universal focal length, exceptional build quality. Sharp from f/4 onwards (even when tilted) most subjectively - nice bokeh when tilted.

    Summary: a Very good special purpose lens. Perfect for wider portraits, wedding, fashion photography and overall use, including architecture. ok for wider angle product shots, although for macro work you'd probably be better off with a 90mm TS. (the 45 is somewhat less flexible in terms of the distance from the subject to the front lens element when used with macro rings/extension tubes)
