Hidden Gem

  • Summary: I've owned this little unknown gem for years now; and, honestly, I love it. It's one of my favorite lenses. I'll always be amazed that no one knows that it exists. It's probably the sharpest lens that Canon makes. It has virtually no distortion, very negligible chromatic aberration, no noticeable vignetting, and bokeh to rival the best L series glass. I think people are just afraid of it because it's a tilt-shift.

... reviews of this lens is that it is quite easy to change the orientation of the tilt vs shift

John Hennessy, Amazon
6 February 2015
  • Summary: The only thing to add to five-star reviews of this lens is that it is quite easy to change the orientation of the tilt vs shift. All you need is a screwdriver. No Canon factory required! Probably not something to do in the field, (to avoid dropping and loosing the screws, mainly) but a five-minute little job.

  • Excerpt: Landscape and portraiture are my main uses. having plenty of manual focus lenses manually focusing was not a problem it simply takes a little longer. The focus confirm is very helpful. I own both this lens and the zeiss 135 APO sonnar and I must say both lenses are very nice and this 90mm for being a very old model is pretty on par, even if it not apochromatic. Its resolution is superb.

Creative photo lens

Martin, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: When I purchased a used lens copy of this TS-E lens, I was already familiar with tilt/shift lenses by using both the 24/3.5 I and II TS-E versions. The design of the 90/2.8 TS-E is the same one as formerly used in the 24/3.5 TS-E I lens. Advantage of this old build style is its metal lens body and better knobs to turn compared to the new 24/3.5 II TS-E lens.

Perfect product photography lens for full frame

David Siegfried, Amazon
12 March 2013
  • Summary: This is the ideal product photography lens for small to medium sized objects on a full-frame camera. I guess I don't REALLY need the precision focusing abilities that this lens provides for posting product shots on the online auction site (you know the one), but I find that the quality of the image makes a big impression and brings in higher sales if it looks professional--plus I just enjoy playing with what this lens can do.

  • Excerpt: The tilt was only half what I expected. The lens will not attach to Canon's Macro Twin Lite. The lens will focus quite close, acting as a macro lens. The lens is well made, but the shift and tilt are at right angles and should have been made adjustable so they can be combined. I would recomend this but point out the shortcomings.
