Hartblei 65mm F/3.5 Super-Rotator Tilt/Shift lens

Unlike the Nikon PC lenses, the Tilt and Shift mechanisms can be rotated independently of each other so that the shift and tilt are parallel, perpendicular, opposite or anywhere in-between.

Shifts 12mm
Tilts 8 degrees
Minimum focus distance is 1.48ft
Takes 72mm filters
Weights 31.7oz
Min aperture f/22
Manual focus and aperture adjustment

Shift and tilt are adjusted by turning the appropriate knurled ring shown in the pictures. The rods sticking out assist in adjustment, but the tilt ring rod can interfere with the Pentaprism/flash housing on D800 and smaller bodies. BUT, no problem! The rod easily unscrews by hand and can be inserted in a corresponding hole 180 degrees opposite on the same ring. You can leave the rods off entirely, if you prefer.

Includes a lens pouch, and both end caps.

Glass is excellent, mechanisms are perfect, some minor wear on mount as you expect from a 6 year old lens, but otherwise immaculate.

$650 includes PayPal fees and UPS ground (5 business day) or USPS Priority Mail (2-3 day) to 50 states. Shipping to Canada $15 additional. (There is a new one selling on eBay for $1,440.)

For those who are interested in exploring the Tilt/Shift world, this is a good mid-range lens.
