Fujifilm UK kindly lent me the new 30mm tilt/shift to have a go with - unfortunately they did want it back...

I'll happily say that it's by far and away the best quality wide tilt/shift lens I've yet tested...

I was able to test it on my own GFX100S and for a short while on a GFX100II  [spoiler alert - no significant differences ;-) ]

I've a longish written review [over 5k words] at:
https://www.northlight-images.co.uk/fuji-30mm-ts-review/

This includes two videos:
The first is about the lens itself [~19 mins] https://youtu.be/YqM5CYpIeoY
The 2nd is about using it and its quality [~34mins] https://youtu.be/ODRtFF_9ciA

I'm now hoping to get the 110mm to test some time.

Definitely left me wondering what improvements both Canon and Nikon could manage when they finally bring out T/S lenses for RF and Z mounts.

Hope it's of some interest.

PS Now waiting for the 110mm TS lens to have a look at

Thanks for posting this Keith.  I like/use TSE lenses quite a bit, I'm only missing the 135mm on Canon (all used on Sony) including the old 35mm FD.  The 30mm Fuji looks like an ideal FOV for me though.  I do wonder about getting a dedicated 100S for it while they are heavily discounted ...

Some images and discussion I found recently on a DPR thread

Keith great writing as always...might be interesting in comparing the images gathered from the 30mm T/s to images from a technical camera with wide angle lens? You could easily shoot the tree again!

Indeed - unfortunately there were no such cameras or lenses under the Christmas tree...
The tree will still be there,
All I need to find is another manufacturer to lend me a camera and lens ;-)
