<< i'm surprised you havent thought of poking for a downward tilt.
 you gain depth of field at no f-stop cost whatsoever! there is no need to
 see the schmeimflug effect like you have to with a reflex. you already know
 how the unique way summitar will render the foreground: fuzzy infocus.ralph

Then there's also the potential to convert it into a perspective control 
lens.  This could be BIG!
