I've always wanted a tilt & shift lens for my Oly bodies. I have the 35 
shift, which is fine for architectural, but want something more like the 
C*non TS 45 and 90mm offerings. The problem with the Zuiko shift lens are 
that they won't focus to infinity if mounted on a bellows.  Also the lens has 
to have sufficient coverage for shifting. I've been scouring pawn shops for 
broken 2 1/4 cameras that I could cannibalize the lens off of. The nicest 
solution would be the 45mm Super Angulon I suppose. Anybody have one I could 
play with <g>.
