There are (were?) also shorter focal lengths tilt and tilt/shift lenses available from "behind the former iron curtain", that came with a fixed mount (no adapter) for several brands, among which Nikon. I believe they were 35 mm.
Perhaps a better choice for use on a 35 mm camera than the longer MF lenses?
Good morning, Q.G.

I think the main reason for the use of the Medium Format lenses on the tilt-shift adapters for 35mm cameras, such as the Nikon F, is the wider image circle of the MF lens when you tilt it or shift it over.

At this time, I am just trying to get a shift lens to work with the Medium Format camera body.
