Some well priced items but scrolling through their '50 t+s lens pictures' become very samey very quickly. I mean how often would you want to take a 'toy perspective view' of a scene?

well I have had the problem sorted out for me ,I was looking at a 150mm AF mamiya lens ,and I got one of them ,because you are interested emails from eBay and they offered 50.00 discount on there buy it now price ,and in my moment of weakness I bought that instead of a shift lens ,as was said If I don't use it much it would be a waste of money and the 150mm I will use a lot .so at the end destiny has taken its Couse .

I looked at the Arax website (thanks for the link) and found the latest version of the adapter that I use. Mine is earlier and only allows the lens to droop downwards - there is no provision for rotating the lens with respect to the camera body. Also, the later version allows a full 8 of tilt, just as my modified adapter does. Except that mine leaks light and requires black insulating tape, which I am sure the new version doesn't.
For those with deeper pockets I note that Arax offer a tilt and shift adapter

I received the 150mm3.5 mamiya AF lens today and shot a roll of film to make sure it was working ,its a great lens ,and it works as good as it looks i bought it from MW classic cameras ,i have bought from them before and always been satisfied with them .its also a lot lighter than my 105-210 mm 4.5 AF zoom lens ,and i do like a 150mm lens....

Probably a good call Paul.
The shift lens was likely to spend a lot of time in your bag. Enjoy the 150.
