Hi,

 

Does anyone have experience with adapting Canon or Nikon tilt-shift lenses onto an A7Rii?

 

I am interested to hear experiences and recommendations (e.g. lens/adapter combinations which work well or badly) of anyone who has done this.

 

Andy

I have used  Canon ts-e 24mm with Commlite adapter on a7ii and so far the result looks good, except there was a little bit flare when shooting agains bright light source. I think the problem is in the adapter, will compare next time with Metabones. But you can avoid it by using lens hood or just block the light with your hand.

I use a 35/2.8 shift-only Nikkor on an a7-II and

the illumination fall-off is visible when shifted,

about 1.5 stops. Compensating for it reduces  

available dynamic range.  

  

BTW, a lens shade on a shifted lens is a sad

joke, unless you employ a shiftable matte box

similar to as used with a studio monorail view.

Using your hand can work very well especially

with a large card as a parasol.

I am using the Canon TS-E´s (17, 24, 90mm) via the Metabones IV Adapter and the Olympus TS 35, 2.8 via a Novoflex Adapter on my Sony A7Rii. I am very pleased to use these Lenses on this camera. The Metabones gives me all the exif informations I need for the post production and it works perfect. The Novoflex adapter with the Olympus lens is also perfect even when you get no exif info.

For me it is a perfect combo for Architectural and landscape photography: Perfect lenses via very good adapters on a perfect camera. I love to work with them.

Hope this helps!

I us a hartblei TS Adapter with a modifite 14-24mm AFS 2,8. The newes V2 Version adapts a Canon 11-24mm lens. 

http://hartblei.de/de/whatsnew.htm

This adapter has tilt and shift. I have seen an other version at the Photokina with two shift directions. It s the first shift adaper i us ,were you can stich also with the presicon you need. I us it without the rail only on a arca P0 head.

You kann adapt all canon and nikon lenses. and a lot of them has a big usable imige cirle.

I'm using a mirex tilt-shift adapter with a Contax YC 35-70 f3.4. Excellent combination and the adapter is never leaving the lens anymore.
Works well with my other Contax lenses but the 35-70mm gives me more freedom and is as good as the primes.
And no problem with infinity,
See the second picture, taken with this combo

And the images titled "difficult life" and "stones and mouvements" :

If you use a 14-16mm it's quite easy to have enough sharpness, like the other images almost all taken with the 16-35 f4 Sony.
Also the new Canon lenses work well with the adapter.

LIke EDBR I aso use a Mirext tilt shift adapter. My examplemounts mamiya 645 lenses. Its expensive but it is a finely engineered adapter.Its a cheaper option than using NIkon and canon PC lenseswhile equaling the IQ
