Golden Oldie

  • 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

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.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Strong Construction

  • 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...
