This product is a brilliant piece that will give you pristine images with amazing beauty. It has first-rate delineation and accurate backdrop blur. The Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8 is the very first 90mm lens with the ability to tilt and shift, which gives the user the options to photograph a variety of subject matter. The shift option allows the user to balance the perspective distortions by just “shifting” the view off of the horizontal axis. The tilt option can correct problems with subject matter not being parallel with the scene and sensor plane. When you tilt or shift the lens, the lens itself looks slightly strange, but it is effective. The normal angle view is 27 degrees without either the tilt or shift option. The color saturation is quite brilliant compared to Leitz lenses and other L primes. This means that the quality of the lens glass is superb and very skillfully manufactured. It has a 58mm filter size and a closest focusing distance of 0.5m or 50cm. It can magnify objects up to 0.29 times and has a metal mount.
It is a decently durable lens, but it does not have a stabilizer option. It weighs exactly 565 grams, and is 73.6 by 88mm in size. There is no zoom feature and it also lacks a low dispersion lens element which would help with chromatic aberration. Generally it costs 1,569.99 Euros, or about 2,118.54 American Dollars, however on most sites, prices do vary. This lens is pricy for occasional use, but rather great for company and frequent users.
There are many great ideas for using this lens. Portraits of family, high definition animal portraits, or even just a sunset scenery image would be great uses of this lens. But remember, there is no stability option, so if you plan on being bounced around this lens is not a very good choice. If you are starting a photography business, this is a good lens because you can set it on a base and take advantage of the multiplication, tilt, and shift features. Or, perhaps, you are a freelancer for a magazine, be it a wild life article, skate border feature, or even a simple group photo, this lens is the one for it all.
For clean clear photos it is important to keep the Canon TS-E lens clean. With the lens shape it is relatively easy to clean this product as long as you know how. Just use a gentle brush to dust of dirt or sand particles, which will damage this amazing lens if you try to just wipe it off. Then just polish the lens with some cleaning solution, then dry it off, and you have a clean TS-E that is ready for more adventure.
Generally, this is a lens that is good for landscape images, portrait images, scenery images, and any other image you could imagine. So just go have fun with it, and even though it has some cons, you will love it.
