i guarantee you that these are not photoshop effects. they were shot with a real tilt shift lens. at work today, we rented the PC Micro-Nikkor 85mm f/2.8 D and the Nikkor AF-S 200-400mm f/4 VR G. what beautiful lenses these were. i went out with the 200-400mm and that thing, weighing a bit more than 7 lbs, tired the hell out of me after hand holding it for less than 5 mins. it's a great lens; focuses faster than my 70-200vr and the vr works great, but it is much heavier. i didn't like the lens because of this. the other lens on the other hand, the pc micro 85mm, was one that i enjoyed very much. i've seen people photoshop the fake tilt shift effects and never cared for them. what was really missing was the bokeh, and that's difficult to emulate. this is the real thing. i think this lens is going on my wish list...
