I was a bit optimistic in my comment above about the degree to which the tilt can be used at infinity. Now that it has stopped raining here I have gone out and had another look. With the 80mm and 40mm lenses (all I have here ) you can use at least 4deg of down tilt and get infinity subjects in focus in the top section of the frame,maybe a bit more. Sometimes a bit of juggling is needed, but it's definitely useful. This is enough for convincing near/far landscape work.
Also i've seem some portraits where tilt has been used to accentuate out of focus areas infront of and behind the subject, something i will try soon..
