    Bronica/Schneider 55mm Tilt Shift Lens.

    I am extremely interested in find a Bronica tilt shift lens. I have heard that Scheider made one but it is rare. Does anyone have a suggestion other than ebay as to where I can look for one. If not, how about a tilt shift adapter? Anything to get me tilt shift on my ETRSi.

    It is very rare. It is by Schneider and is called the Zenzanon-PE Super Angulon 55mm f4.5 PCS. It is a tilt-shift lens.
    A few specs: f/4.5-32. Equivalent to 34mm in 135 format. 64 degree angle of view. Focuses to .5 meter. 104mm filter thread. 1650 grams weight. Floating element design.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    They still bring a ton of money on eBay.

    Unless there's some particular reason that you need a 645 SLR with tilt and shift, it may be less expensive just to buy a view camera or a press camera than to buy the rare lens, and the view camera will give you more flexibility.

    For that matter, it may be cheaper to switch your whole system for a Rollei SL66E or Bronica S2A and get tilt and shift with every lens in your bag.

    The Bronica S2a has tilt-shift? News to me.

    I'm with David's suggestion. You could probably pick up a nice Horseman or maybe even a Linhoff for what that lens is likely to cost.

    The S2a has the option of a tilt shift bellows, but movements are only practical for tabletop and macro subjects, because the wide-normal lenses protrude into the mirror box, and the lens barrel usually bumps against the lens mount, if you try using, say, front rise with a wide lens like you would to photograph a tall building.

    I have in my hands this lens. This is the first I've ever seen, quite impressive. It has X Y shift as well as tilt. Beautifully constructed. I am cleaning the optics for a store and once it is completed the store will post it for sale. For those of you very interested the store is Penn Camera in Washington DC.
