    Cons: Focus scale could have been more detailed (there is nothing between 3m and infinite!) to help focusing without live-view. Even 8 diaphragm blades makes night shots (stars generated by city lights) not really spectacular (should have been 9 like last Sigma lenses!)

    Pros: Everything else: impressive image quality (sharp at f/3.5 on the non-shifted picture, at f/9 for full shift), tilt-shift abilities, easy panorama with shifting, very short minimum focus distance, build quality, abilities to put 2 filters (ND400+graduated or polarizer for example) without vignetting. Great 'L' color rendering. No chroma aberrations.

    Summary: Usable without tripod but one is necessary (+bubble level) to get the best of the lens. You need time to learn its usage.

    Cons: It's very big lens. The tilt / stift controls are placed too narrow so that it doesn't feel so great when adjusting the T/S.

    Pros: superb image quality, T/S, great color rendering

    Summary: If you are a serious landscape photographer, you should pick up this!

    Cons: Speciality manual focus lens - i e not all-around (used for landscape and architecture mainly). Relatively heavy. Tilt focusing requires modern high resolution live view display (5Dmk2 or similar) to not be a test of patience. Quite expensive lens in absolute numbers.

    Pros: Shift and tilt very valuable for landscape/architecture. Very high image quality for being 24mm lens. More flexible movements than traditional tilt-shift lenses (can move tilt/shift independent of eachother, make diagonal tilts etc). Large image circle (67mm), means that maximum shift is rarely needed - better image quality.

    Summary: If you're serious about landscape and architecture you want this lens.
