Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Gold Award July 2009
A unique lens, which has capabilities beyond anything else currently on the market. It's certainly an improvement on its predecessor, with better optics (especially in terms of chromatic aberration), improved build, and of course more flexible movements.

Conclusion

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.

Reasons to buy

  • Excellent central sharpness even at F3.5
  • Minimal chromatic aberration
  • Almost no visible distortion
  • Extensive and highly flexible perspective control movements
  • Exceptional build quality

Things to consider

  • Soft corners when shifted (need to stop down to F11 - F16 to achieve best sharpness)
  • Relatively expensive

Suggested for

When centered, this is among the sharpest 24mm primes our there, with almost no CA or distortion. No matter what position it is in, this lens will draw straight architectural lines, with low color fringing even in the corners of the frame.

Not suggested for

Corner sharpness isn't great in extreme shift positions, although this isn't a huge issue in normal use at small apertures.

Product Description

Product Description

A superb refinement to a true Canon classic, the new TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II offers enhanced functionality and image quality in its most popular tilt-shift focal length. Designed with UD glass to minimize and compensate for chromatic aberrations and specially coated aspherical elements for the highest possible glare-free image quality, this tilt-shift lens features an angle of view of 74 degrees. New TS revolving lets users freely combine tilting and shifting within the range of +/- 90 degrees in the direction of movement. It has an enhanced range of movement of up to +/- 8.5 degrees, a revolving construction for both portrait and landscape shooting modes, locking, ergonomically designed and easily operated tilt and shift knobs, uses a circular aperture for beautiful out-of-focus areas, and is constructed using only lead-free glass and has an SWC lens coating that controls ghosting and flare to a far greater degree than earlier coating technologies.

Verified Purchase
After years of missing large format cameras with their swings and tilts, and of course their wonderful large film size that together produce incredible images, I think I have found something that will lessen my longing.

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.

If you are serious about landscape invest in this lens and you will not be sorry. Even if you don't care about the tilt and shift, get this lens because it is ridiculously sharp everywhere on the lens, the corners, sides, middle, etc. No CA, minimal flare, etc, etc. Everything you hear about this lens is true! Focusing on 5d2 via live mode and 10x zoom is a joy, just can't say enough good things. 24mm is the perfect focal length, no need for zoom. The build quaility is rock solid. This is the sharpest lens canon makes, at any focal length, so far.

This is an amazing piece of engineering. You need patience to use it properly. It's great for landscapes, cityscapes and architecture, including interior shots. You can hand hold it but it will be easier to use of you have a monopod or tripod. It's a manual focus lens, so you need a Canon DSLR that has live view and the ability to magnify the image on the LCD screen I tend to turn on live view, magnify the image, focus the lens, and then turn off live view and frame the shot with the viewfinder, talking care not to move the focus ring.

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.

This is an important update on the TSE 24mm lens from Canon.
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.
