I just got my new Rokinon 24 mm tilt shift lens. It is not very difficult to use, at least for someone like me with view camera experience. Also, although I haven't done any tests yet, it seems to provide reasonable image quality.

Since the lens doesn't make use of automatic features of my Nikon D800, I plan to use it with a light meter, althouguh if worse comes to worst, I think I can use the camera for that purpose. I can set the fstop on the lens and the shutter speed on the camera using the Manual setting. But I am used to doing that with my 4 x 5 view camera, so it is not a big problem.

If I encounter any special features or problems with further use, I will report them here.
