A tilt and shift adapter would do great on such a lens... however you need good border sharpness for that, sample pictures don't look promising for that, but hey it's a 9mm full frame lens, some compromises must be made

Tilt and shift on which format? It is a "mirrorless" camera lens, so there is no room for that.

Anyway, a very cool little lens. The huge vignetting is to be expected, a lot of it will be down to the sensors itself.
A bit silly that they do not offer RF-mount (maybe they have no figured out yet how to close the aperture on Canon EF/RF?), but one can use a Leica M-mount on it anyway.

My bad didn't notice that, I thought of ana analogy with irix and tilt and shift adapter
nevertheless a tilt and shift ultrawide is a great thing
