Default Canon Telephoto Tilt Shift Lenses TS-E 90, 45 mm

I am interested in buying these lenses and would like to hear comments from anyone using either one of these lenses.

I would be using them to take photos of food products and packaging machinery for use in advertising literature.

I've read some very positive comments about Canon's TS lenses on dpreview's forums, and in fredmiranda's forums. I've never used (or even seen) the lenses myself.

They were talking about them in reference to architecture, I believe.

I have the 90mm Tilt and Shift. It is dynamite. It took a while
to get the tilt coordinated with the focusing to maximize
depth of field. It works well with teleconverters.

a) they are very expensive
b) they are redundant with DSLR

Every cheap program makes the same.

They are usefull for analog photography.

While I agree with point "A", I disagree with point "B". Programs like PS do make correcting the persective quite easy, but they cannot increase the DOF the way tilting the lens can -- thus they are still extremely useful to those of us wanting to extract the most possible detail out of our optical/imaging system.
