[font color=\'#000000\']A few ways to skin the "tilting cat"!
My note wasn't intended to subsitute for systematic approaches to determining tilt (any approach that gets it right is right!) but as an aid, especially for folks who have the lens but no LF format experience with movements and who might have a dim viewfinder, especially for the last part of checking focus after stopping down.
Guy, Thanks for the succinct description of the "focus for near, tilt for far" approach - I'm improving exactly that workflow with practice on my Ebony. I don't memorize these numbers - they're in the back of my field notes book, right alongside the hyperfocal distance table, to which I see a good analogy - an aid to setting up the shot.
