SWIFT is an AO-assisted I/z band integral field spectrograph built by a dedicated instrument team at the University of Oxford. The instrument is mounted on the 200" Hale telescope at Palomar Observatory. I will give a description of SWIFT and its capabilities and present some of the first commissioning and science results from this exciting new instrument, covering various science cases including my own interests in galaxy kinematics.
