so

remove the four screws and turn that section 90deg CCW from back of lens

insert four screws

tilt and shift in same axis and properly oriented?

is that it? or do pitfalls abound?

Hi,

Although it's for another lens, it is probably similar to how it's described here.

Cheers,

24mm TS-E II doesn't need it - it already rotates.

Indeed!
The 17mm II and 24mm II Ts lenses from Canon are fully rotatable.

wait...

yes the whole lens turns

but currently the TILT and SHIFT are 90 deg apart

what I want to do is SHIFT vertically and TILT vertically

when I use the tab they remain in hrz/vert config, just swap axes

hope I'm clear...

Why modify your lens?
Canon originally made three EF mount tilt and shift lenses.

Focal lengths of 24mm, 45mm and 90 mm

The new 17mm and 24mm versions do not need this adjustment, since it now just requires a twist of the lens.

Try reading the instructions - there are two tabs and so the shift part of the lens can be rotated independently of the the tilt part of lens.
There is no need to disassemble the lens!! Cheesy
