Golden Oldie

MichiK, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The TS-E 90mm is Canon's first tilt-shift lens for 35mm cameras and has been around for almost 24 years now. Mine is tack sharp from the center to all four corners. I also could not notice any softness when the lens is shifted towards the maximum. I use this lens 90% for landscape and seascape work.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Great picture quality, Lightweight
  • Cons: Small Wheelsknobs

Well built but tilt is too limited.

Shutterbugger, Adorama

  • Excerpt: The tilt was only half what I expected.<br />The lens will not attach to Canon's Macro Twin Lite.<br />The lens will focus quite close, acting as a macro lens. <br />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.<br />I would recomend this but point out the shortcomings.
  • Pros: Close focusing, Rugged
  • Cons: Limited Tilt

90 will get you hooked

  • Excerpt: Although manual focus is old school, optically this lens is mindblowing. The build quality is on par with a L series lens. This lens has a bit of a learning curve through the additional creativity this lens provides makes it worth the effort. It has been one of the most used lens for product &amp; portrait work.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Sweet Glass

Photo Mark, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I generally use the 90mm for close-up shots when depth of field and boken are important. The lens is very sharp and the boken is wonderful. I use it even when perspective control isn't needed. Fantastic when combined with 6mm extention tube.

Great for tabletop product photo

Ryuji Suzuki, Amazon
4 July 2010
  • Summary: This lens is great for shooting product photography. I use it for food, shoes, bags, jewelry, and a lot of things. Sometimes, I add two macro rings and get fairly high magnification (like 1:1 or half life size) but the image quality is still very good, with almost zero chromatic aberration thanks to the true double Gauss design. However, when doing product photography, I want to have independent axes for tilt and shift.

Different lens experience

Henry, B&H Photo

  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
