Review summary from DPReview
The Canon TS-E 24mm F3.5 L II is a lens which, given its price, has high expectations to meet. The good news is that, in almost all respects, it succeeds - the build quality is exemplary (certainly on a par with the EOS-1 series bodies it's likely to be paired with), and the new, more flexible system of movements works very well indeed. The ability to rotate the tilt axis freely with respect to shift increases the creative possibilities substantially, but despite this additional complexity the layout and operation of controls is still very straightforward and easy to master.
Scoring is relative only to the other products in the same category.

This tilt-shift lens combined with a high-pixel DSLR (like the Canon EOS 5D Mark II) enable a photographer to produce images that can rival the best from medium format cameras and even can under the right circumstances push image quality into 4 x 5 inch sheet film territory.
I got this lens, snapped it onto my camera and got excellent results right away. It helped to spend some time refreshing my memory about how to use tilts and shifts but aside from that, there was nothing mysterious about this lens other than the magical quality it possesses for producing sharp, colorful images that can be free of converging lines or offer incredible field of focus control.
Other's have described various technical qualities of this lens and most online reviews describe the several improvements this lens offers over it's predecessor.
The big ones are better control over chromatic abberation and the ability to independently control the axes of shift and tilt. Closer focus is also a bonus.
Opinion varies about sharpness in the corners but all agree this is perhaps one of the sharpest lenses in Canon's line-up. My example delivers sharp corners so perhaps my copy is better that some of the reviewers?
I had to choose between this lens and more traditional ones (I was looking at the 70-200mm) and decided that this lens offered me the things I could get with no other lens - a lens great for interiors, exteriors (architecture) and new landscape dimensions. I can get the zoom later! This lens is unique.Read more ›
You can (1) shift the whole lens up on its mount to accurately straighten the converging lines you get when pointing a wide angle lens up; (2) keep both the foreground and distance background in focus by tilting the font of the lens down or up slightly; (3) create a panorama on a full-frame DSLR equal to the width of a 15 mm lens by taking a shot with the lens shifted to the right on its mount, taking a second shot with the lens shifted to the left, and merging them in software; and (4) shift the lens left (or right) to get a photo of a reflective surface (like a mirror) that looks like it's taken head on, but is taken from the side, thereby avoiding having your own reflection in the frame.
The lens mount rotates so you can use both tilt or shift in landscape mode or portrait mode. You can combine shift and tilt, and you can rotate the lens to set both functions at various non-standard angles to adapt to all sorts of situations, like keeping converging lines straight when you're looking down or up at an odd angle. You can fix distortion and out-of-focus problems or get creative by introducing distortion and out-of-focus areas.Read more ›
This new version is heavier, more versatile and definitely a step up optically.
Distortion is practically non-existent, which is a big plus for architectural photography: you don't have to correct the pictures with software like PTLens.
Chromatic aberration is almost inexistent, and sharpness is outstanding.
The tilt feature makes it possible to take a picture of a garden (or any planar scene) with the foreground and the background all in focus. The minimal focusing distance is 21cm. By the end of the first day I was proficient at using this feature.
The shift feature is used mainly for architectural shots. You'll get better results (edge sharpness and proportions) with such a lens than with perspective correction in software, and you will save time.
It's a manual focus lens that should be used with a tripod. Focusing when using the tilt feature requires a bit of practice to get it right, and is considerably helped by using Live View. For this reason you should use it on a 5D mark 2.
When used at the extreme shift position the top of the image is soft wide open but becomes acceptable at f/11. On this count it does better than the Nikon 28mm pc lens I was using before (which is an older design).
One problem with this lens is that it is very obviously a "professional lens", so I would not go walking around in a poor country with this lens. It's also very heavy so that would get tiring.
One wonders if it could not be improved further with autofocus, but that would require redesigning the camera as well, as well as adding a motor to operate the shift, which is a non obvious proposition.
Please take your time to get familiar with the locking switches on this lens before you go around in the field as you might accidentally try to unmount the lens from your camera when trying to change the axis of shift.
