Well done, Mike, saw that one close for a very attractive price - didn't
notice the buyer id!

Yes, you do have to set exposure before shift, the sequence is:

Align camera with back parallel to plane of subject
Determine required exposure (remember that the shift lenses have manual
aperture, you need to press the stop-down button)
Shift lens as required. 

BUT I suspect that on the later OTF metering bodies, you can actually meter
after shifting without too much problem.

Cool lens, hope it  comes OK.  Much cheaper than "OlyUSA".   I guess this is
the one subject to flair.
The high sn ones in Germany were >$600.00.  I paid alittle over half.  Hope
I wasn't  too impatient.
Does the exposure need to be set prior to shift?  Seems  like it may take
some getting used to.
Mike
