A 50mm f/2.0 Tilt Shift lens from Ukraine

Sony NEX owners that are looking for a tilt lenses usually do consider to buy the Lensbaby composer which costs $344. But one of our readers (thanks Matt!) found an interesting and much cheaper lens on eBay. The lens pictures on top is the multicoated Tilt Zenitar 50mm brand new lens, manufactured in 2011 in Russia and modified with tilt mechanism in Ukraine. It has the same design as the famous Hartblei lenses. It can tilt at plus/minus from 0 up to 8 degrees.

UPDATE: Another reader sent me a link to the Kipon Tilt adapter for NEX on eBay (Click here).
