    The model I'm looking at is some kind of a 35 mm Shift lens for Olympus.
    And I can't find any info about that lens.
    Has any had any experience with anything like that?

    Thanks!

    Interesting. Sinaron lenses are made by Rodenstock for large format. They are excellent lenses, but I didn't know they made a PC lens for 35mm. Is it an original Rodenstock product or an adaptation. If it's a well done adaptation, it's not necessarily a bad thing. Schneider made and continues to make such a lens.

    It looks more or less like this one.

    That's a similar design to the Schneider. It's probably an excellent lens. It might be made in different mounts with the main target being one of the Sinar-Bron bodies for high-end digital backs. Try www.sinarbron.com for more info.
