God's eye

Straight Verts!, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I have rented this lens for years, but as my architectural work became more and more steady, it just seemed to be time to buy it. I have dubbed this lens the eye of god, because in a word, it's FLAWLESS. I have never really used the tilt function, but I just the perspective shift on a daily basis.

  • Excerpt: For those of us that learned on a view camera... this is perfection! It will take time to learn all of the benefits and how to use a TS lens but this one is perfection. No flaws what so ever!

Mind-boggling quality and technology - and photos

Agachado, Canon
5 March 2016
  • Excerpt: This lens takes some work to understand, but there's no other piece of equipment at any price that makes the near-perfect pictures this lens takes. Panoramic vistas, distortion-free architectural shots, expanded or shortened DOF shots - all from one lens.

Awesome lens

28 February 2016
  • Excerpt: This lens is an absolute must-have for shooting architecture. I use it about 85% of the time. Sure it distorts, but there are ways to deal with it and make it work, make it beautiful and dramatic.

  • Excerpt: If you have never peeked into the unique world of the tilt/shift lens, then be forewarned - there is a learning curve. But there are some benefits to the tilt/shift lens that might make it worth the investment for the serious hobbyist or professional. As for the lens itself, it is very nice.

  • Excerpt: This lens is a fabulously sharp (to the corners) 17mm lens without considering the tilt and shift capabilities. When shifting and tilting, this lens is a life saver and still remarkably sharp and contrasty.

It's the view camera for us ordinary folks

Bill, B&H Photo
15 December 2015
  • Excerpt: I'm an amateur who likes to shoot disappearing Americana, and that often means small towns and the architecture that is disappearing--or just being defaced--with them. Yes, Photoshop tools can help, but with the new 50.6 megapixel 5DSR, I'm striving for something approaching what real professionals...

Everything I hoped it would be and more

Jack Flash, B&H Photo
23 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Technically excellent, optically astounding and simply amazing. If you are an architectural photographer, you already know that you need this. If you are a landscape photographer and are tired of shooting towards the sky at a 45 degree angle and watching all the trees vertically converge towards the...
