I was curious. At 24mm the horizontal FOV is around 74 degrees. If you were to 
focus at center then shift to the side, you would have to move back about 25% 
to put the chimney back in the plane of focus. At long distances the COC 
(circle of confusion) eats the difference.

Cos(34) = Adj/Hyp where Adj is the center distance and Hyp is the left/right 
Say you are 50m from the chimney, then you would have to move back another 12m 
to keep the chimney in the center focused plane of focus.

Hyp = 50m/Cos(34) = 62.6m.

For corners use FOV 84/2 (42) degrees. 50m/cos(42) = 67.3m
