Fred - have you tried to do a shift and a tilt in the same direction with a flocked adapter? I was getting a pretty bad vignette with that effect. I am wondering if whatever this paper is, its not handling humidity well ( aside from it coming unglued). I shoot by the beach and various waterways a lot, and eventually I started noticing a vignette at over 10mm shift (I used flocked adapter for a long time before getting TS-17). A 2 degree tilt down, in direction of shift, pretty much killed it for me. I removed the paper from top and bottom only (it came off too easily) after which point I got no vignette in any tilt/shift combo, but of course started getting severe flares (at top and bottom) when using 24-70mm.

Tilt and shift lenses were never a problem with the Metabones Mark III (even the TS-E 17mm) as there is no mechanical vignetting.
The reflection issue has been resolved by flocking the adapter and I doubt that the new "matte" paint will do a better job with reflections.
The good news is that perhaps the Mark III will go down in price.
