CA is however not negligible, and becomes nasty when shifted (ED glass maybe, but APO certainly not) : here, LR4 is the cure. Indeed, LR4 seems to detect the "optical centre" and correct the layers accordingly. This I observed also with other shift lenses (PC 35/2.8...).
At extreme shifts, the farthest edge (in the direction of shift) loses sharpness, to a much lesser extent than the old 28/3.5 PC lens though.
Mechanics are ok : the handling is less easy than with the 45mm sibling, because the tilt/shift block is closer to the mount. Tilt and shift axes are perpendicular, which is best for my usage, but cannot be modified by the user (except for the most talented amongst ourselves), which is stupid.
The lens is fully usable wide open, even on D800, which is a big plus. MF is easy, but I recommend a magnifying eyepiece for that (unless you are a LiveView fan).
