I keep hearing that this is perfect for food photography - does anyone have any samples they'd like to share?

scuff has some in his recent posts :)

The lens works great for those shooting shots Rob. Isn't it about time James changed his gun :-)

would be if he didn't keep bouncing back and winning things with it... world champ one day, b grader all winter league, bottom off aa (title literally nabbed by yours truly) and then cleans most of the showdown to take the title.

Any more floral examples with this lens? I'm really considering one of these.

Here's a couple of examples. Added a 20mm extension tube.

This is lens of late has become my preferred tool over the 100mm macro for product macro photography. It matches 85L in terms of resolving power.

Picked up the TS-E 90 yesterday - yeah, there's a learning curve... well, when it comes to the "proper" use of the lens - abusing the flexibility is easy! Will post some stuff when it's worthy.

Finally had a chance to give the lens a good workout at the botanic garden - here's a couple that were more tilt/shift specific -

I tried to lay the plane of focus over the surface of the water and floating leaves - at a working distance of a few feet, I don't think that I'm getting this depth any other way.

Ditto with this image - pretty good sharpness through the frame.

Close, but no cigar on the practice run at getting all three flowers on the same plane, but at least the back two flowers didn't get obliterated in to complete mush.

Fun lens - I look forward to learning the ropes over the next couple months.

Actually, I really like that last one very much, and even with tilt it isn't always possivle to get all in focus you want, especially with the 90.

Did you notice the bokeh in that last shot, BTW? This is a prime example (:D) of how good TS-E bokeh is. The pointy leaves in the background actually fade away very nicely and smoothly. Try this with any other (non-TS-E) lens; you might be disappointed :D. You will also find it is this good at any aperture with the TS-Es ...

Kind regards, Wim

^^^ Yeah, I have noticed - the bokeh is quite nice! Here's another (that I felt might be poo-pooed in this thread, because of the non-tilted nature of it) with a torture test BG that it handles pretty well -

great shots everyone

I have been really curious about this lens and will eventually rent one to try it out.

I asked these questions in the macro section, got some answers, but wondered if some of you had any other input.

I only shoot macro and was considering trying out this lens in order to achieve more DOF without going into image IQ loss that we get at f16 and higher. Been wondering how much advantage I could gain with this TS lens in order to have better DOF.

Does anyone knows (if anyone ever tried, even better yet) how does that 90 mm behaves with a full set of Kenko ext. tubes?

What would be the approximate maximum magnification? I would be hoping at at least reach 1:1, more would be even better.

And what would be the minimum focusing distance?

I presume that if it did work well, we would hear more about it in the macro section, but no one seems to use that at all. Possibly the cost of the lens is also prohebitive to most.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Martin, I don't have the lens but it should work with tubes.

The only problem with this is the extension reduces the amount of focus plane tilt possible, you can work this out theoretically and a focus plane tilt of about 17 degre can be expected at life size.

However this is a function of magnification, and is better at lower magnifications.

Lester,

thank you for your time, I may just have to give it a try at one point!

Indeed worth a try, most effective with close-up subjects I suspect.

An interesting point is the 24mm v2 TSE has from memory rear focus and more native magnification than v1.

How this effects the available fp tilt vs magnification I am not sure, but it could well be better than adding tubes. It is possible the 90mm is due for a facelift at some point.

If I had the cash I would get both!
