I always wanted a 35mm tilt-shift, but the FD was not easily adapted to Canon, and their offerings of the 45mm (too narrow) and 24mm (too wide) didn't fit the bill for me. If I go the A7r route, I might have to look around for one of these.
Not cheap, Matt, but the brass machined adapter from Canadian Ed Mika is a ready swap-out for the original FD bayonet and makes the TS35/2.8 a straight EF lens. He sells the adapter with or without a FC chip.
After buying the zeiss 50MP, I started eyeing the 100f/2...but was hard to justify having another 100mm lens that was not 1:1 - I have already the canon ef 100mm 2.8 usm
Well, found a better solution:
LEICA APO-MACRO-ELMARIT-R 100 mm f/2.8 and the LEICA ELPRO 1:2–1:1 converter
Now I can retire the canon , that is after the new set arrives sometime this week
I have the Leica R 60/2.8 macro and the same 1:1 adapter and it's a fantastic lens, with or without the adapter. I think you will have lots of satisfaction from your 100 version too, purely in my experience with the 60.
