dyxum note
This is a Tilt and Shift lens, with 11mm shift and 8 tilt. The lens can rotate 360 degrees and locks at 12 angles.
The lens is fully manual and has an aperture lock mechanism to allow you easily switch between f2.8 and your selected aperture.

The shift mechanism allows for perspective control and the tilt mechanism allows the focal plane to be tilted for selective focus effects or the Scheimflug effect for infinate depth of field.

The lens does work with AS, however movement of the sensor could affect focus with large apertures when the lens is tilted.

manufacturer description

This multicoated ARAX 80 mm Tilt/Shift compact lens has a high quality precision CANON type T&S mechanism. 11mm shifting, 8 mm tilting and 360o rotating capabilities enable you to correct perspective distortions, as is often required in interior and exterior architectural, landscape and product photography. The effects possible with large-format camera movements can now also be obtained for 35mm cameras through these TS ARAX lenses.

The excellent multicoated optics of this lens allows you to make sharp, contrasty, and colour perfect images. Of course it has a manual aperture control. The lens can be shifted by 11mm from its normal position. The direction of the shift can be rotated by 360o and locks at 12 angular positions.

You can use this lens on any 35mm digital or film cameras including full-frame DSLR. Lens had no any problems with rotating and turning to any direction on Canon, Minolta, Pentax and other cameras. Old lenses has problem with Nikon flash slot. It is too close to camera mount. Now our new generation lenses free rotates on Nikon camera body without problem with flash slot. Tested on Nikon D70, D90, D200.
Lens comes with front protective cap and soft case.

This lens was never made at the ARSENAL factory. It is designed and made by ARAX from MC ARSAT 2.8/80mm lenses.

There are no adapters, since we manufacture each lens with a specific mount.
Use the lens with the appropriate mount for your camera, without any additional adapters! - Home of the alpha system photographer
