Thanks for that clarification artington. That puts paid to my vision of a Samyang 24mm T&S lens on my NEX and Alpha 580. What a difference one letter can make. Shame on Metabones for not making a speed booster for A-mount lenses.
That is so but the beauty about 24mm T&S is the wide field of view and vast DOF which would not be the same if it was 36mm equivalent, as would be the case used on a 580. So you can get the Samyang with a Canon mount and use it via the Metabones Speed Booster on the Nex and get the 24mm field of view and huge depth of field in tilt mode. If you are shifting the lens for architectural verticals correction the wider the lens the better because you can then photograph taller buildings so you really would not want to shift it on the a580. For landscape and architecture the 24mm equivalent is undoubtedly the way to go which means either the a99 or an adapted Nex.
