For those who don't know about tilt shift lenses, they basically allow you to change the depth of field from the standard front-to-back to a much more interesting composition. For example, I can simulate very shallow depth of field with this lens, even though it's a 24mm. That lets you get really creative and make some truly amazing images.
THINGS THIS LENS IS GOOD AT:
- Tilt shift photographs.
- Macro, due to the super low minimum focus distance.
- Very low barrel distortion.
- Color rendition.
- HD video, both tilt shift and normal.
THINGS THIS LENS IS NOT GOOD AT:
- If you like to shoot 20MP photos at f/3.5, focused at infinity and no tilt shift, then view your pictures at 100% and pixel peep, this is not the lens for you. This is not a razor sharp lens. It is, however, PLENTY sharp to get awesome results, especially for well under half the price of the Canon equivalent.
- Autofocus. It doesn't have it. But seriously, it is not difficult to manually focus a 24mm lens at f/3.5+. It's actually really easy, especially with a focus ring that's as dampened as this one. And when the lens is tilted (i.e. it's main purpose), you would never autofocus anyway, because you're playing with the depth of field to decide what parts of the image you want blurry and what parts sharp.Read more ›
This is better than the first version of the Canon 24mm TS, because it has rotating features and you can tilt and shift in the same plane (I've not compared optics).
The knobs are probably the thing that has gotten the most negative attention - if you have really,really large fingers, this could be an issue, but for the average person, it doesn't seem likely to me that the knobs would break off. If you are that forceful with these controls, you'd probably be in danger of breaking the Canon ones too. It just requires careful adjustment.
In conclusion, this is a great tool if you can find it for a better price, and if anything it can be a great interim solution if you need to save for the Canon version.
1) clarifications on the specs which buyers should be aware of
2) specific sharpness problems in some cases that made me return this lens.
1) Spec updates:
Buyers should know that there are no electronics in this lens at all. It is not just a manual focus lens. There are big differences between the Canon TS-E lenses that also require manual focus and this one:
- this lens does not have focus confirmation either
- this lens has no electronic aperture control. In the Canons you use the viewfinder with aperture always full open and it snaps close to where you want when you take the shot. This lens doesn't do that. There also seems to be focus creep when changing aperture, so you can't focus full open and then step down to take the shot
- this lens doesn't tell the camera what focal length and aperture were in effect when taking a shot (for the EXIF info)
Quite frankly I am baffled at the lack of AF confirm. I think if you buy the Nikon version and a $15 EOS adapter with AF confirm you would get that. What the heck?
Other spec clarifications:
- the focal length varies with focus, it is longer at infinity. I don't know yet what the true values are
- it's all plastic but seems solid enough to me. Shifting and tilting work well
2) Possible sharpness concerns:
Take this with a grain of salt since it is only one lens I tested and I didn't give it a long evaluation myself. It seems that there is a very serious sharpness problem at or close to infinity focus with apertures bigger than f/11. I have not been able to take any shot at bigger apertures that was "landscapish" (that means not a closeby object) that was sharp. Zero.Read more ›
