I'm thinking about getting a tilt-shift lens in the future. The local camera store has an older Nikoor 85mm PC lens for a pretty good price. My main application would be food shots where I would want to have the horizontal plane in focus while I shoot from a shallow angle. They tell me this older lens is not as capable as the lenses selling today. Apparently it can tilt and shift, but cannot tilt and shift at the same time. Did I get that right? I'm guessing I don't need shift at all. Shift is used to fix perspective, which would be a big deal on a 24mm lens if you shoot architecture, but you can fix this in photoshop anyway. All I really care about is tilting. I guess I still can't get this used lens yet as I have a D90 and it apparently will bump the D90 so I have to wait until next year when I get a FX camera? So if I want to just tilt the focal plane, can I just use a lens baby? When I look at photos of the lens baby, it looks like it is essentially a lens swiveler, but when I see the photos people take with lens baby they are not the same as a lens tilt. With a lens tilt, you can get a plane of focus wherever you want and, like a view camera, you can get photos which are sharp everywhere. The photos I have seen from a lens baby are only sharp at a point and look gimmicky. Plus, the lens baby adds distance between the lens and the camera which would mean you cannot focus at inifinity, or even close to infinity, now. Is that right?
