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.

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. I wasn't sure how much I would like it but now that I've had some seat time with it, I could never think of being without it.
Usual L quality - beefy, precise, and consistent behavior for all controls!
Not a bargain price but it's the old adage - you get what you pay for!
Good as the 24TS is, I would recommend stopping it down, even when you're not shifting. I know the test reports always say "Its fabulous wide open so stopping down just invites diffraction." This is certainly true in theory and probably in a test environment, but I find it's best at f/8 - f/11, even unshifted.
Liked the 24TS so much I bought the 17TS also. While the 24TS lacks the coolness factor of the 17, the 24 is, in my opinion a much more useful focal length. (It's also a tiny bit sharper but they are both first class.)
Chances are some of you are like me and are already a Canon user, have already decided to buy a tilt shift lens, but are trying to decide which focal length to buy. If you can only buy one, this is it. I haven't run into a situation where I needed a longer focal length tilt shift and I rarely wish I needed a wider angle.
If you are trying to decide whether to buy the 16-35 or the TSE-24 and you primarily do landscape or architectural work, this is it. I use the 16-35 for weddings and such.
I needed to learn how to use the lens but it wasn't that hard. There are a lot of very smart and generous people in youtube land who have helped me...a lot.
I almost always use a tripod with this lens and a geared head is now permanently attached to my tripod because of this lens. Yes, you will want a geared head if you use this more than a couple of times. You don't NEED it, but you will want it.
I also like that tilt and shift functions can now be rotated against each other easily in any angle.
Compared to my old version of this lens, I only see a few drawbacks which I want to mention here. Optically it does not make a difference, but the built style of the old T/S version was a metal housing while this new version uses plastic. This is especially visible when using the interlock buttons which are now tiny plastic locks (formerly metal). As mentioned in other reviews below, the new version now uses a 82 mm filter thread. This might have been needed to create a larger image circle of the lens to shift it better and to remove vignetting issues, but it forces you to get a new polarizer and/or ND filter if needed. In comparison with the older 24 mm T/S lens, you need now to keep a close eye on the scale of the tilt/shift positions. My old lens "jumped" easier back into the zero position while the new lens doesn't do this and might easily still be one mm off center if you are not careful. But you get used to the new system easily to center back correctly.
In my opinion it is the best 24 mm lens which Canon has available in regard to sharpness and for the tilt/shift performance image-quality wise.
Of course it also has tilt, but I don't use that much so I can't really comment there.
