My big issue with TSE lenses has been edges not foreground or distance. I get the mountains sharp and tilt for something a few feet in front of me and both will be sharp. But something a half mile away at the edge will be soft.
Ben, this sounds like field curvature, this is with the 24 TSE II or 17 TSE?
This is with the 24TSE and it is very sharp at the edges so it is a tilt/focus. This is especially a problem with receding ground which may require more tilt than the foreground.
Tilt works best for landscapes when you have a fairly long level foreground and nothing tall in the near distance. But if you do, you must check focus everywhere very carefully.
Exactly. This is where the higher resolution LCD with 5-10X magnify is such a critical tool, as you can move it about to almost any position. And this is precisely why the angle finder will not work with tilt/shift applications, it is always centered, and with no more than 2.5X. For TSE application in landscapes you need to see the edges of the composition with good resolution.
