While my everyday system has been Fuji as of late, I still rely on Canon system for critical assignments, a few types of which rely on their tilt-shift lenses. I currently own 17, 24 & 90 tilt-shifts and certainly looking into the new releases. Initially, I was set on 50mm to fill the gap but now I am not so sure... There were times when using the 90mm, I wished for the independent tilt-shift axis like the 17 and 24, and the 135mm could open up new possibilities...

All in all, welcome additions :love:

Since these are so long I'm assuming they will continue to make the current line up?

That's is 7 TS lenses now in the Canon line... with only the 90mm having two versions. Wondering if the old 90mm will be discontinued...

The really interesting upgrade here is the half-macro (1:2) capability.

I think the older lenses will still be available for a while, as they serve to cover the lower market segment.

Indeed. In particular, 50mm will be the bigger upgrade as 45mm it will be replacing only has .16x magnification. Current 90mm already has respectable .29x magnification and excellent image quality so the most significant gain would be independent tilt and shift axes.

This is very exciting, I can't wait to try them out :love:

The 50 should be interesting, the 45 was never really used, it was the bastard child of the tilt-shift lineup. The 135 will be a very welcome long focal length. I also wonder if the new 90 will replace or go along with the old 90, the old is a great lens for what it does and is quite sharp.

These are way beyond me, I am not even going to pretend I know of any use for these lenses.

A part of me wishes Canon were putting more effort behind their mainstream lenses.

Where's the replacement 50? or updated 300 F4L, 70-200 F4L? I don't know, good lenses that common folk like me can afford? Maybe I only care about what I mostly shoot with, but I am certain who share the same sentiment.

Am I ever glad I didn't purchase the Zeiss normal lenses and decided to stick with my plastic phantastic mount nifty fifty for the time being.

Now I can buy a normal lens with camera movements! :cool:

I hear what you're saying, but these lenses have a ton of use. I think you would be surprised to find out just how much these lenses are actually used by professionals. Not modeling or wedding really, but they are the go to for architecture, they are fantastic for product photography since you don't have to focus stack. I've used mine for food photography and it works amazing but I guess that would go hand in hand with product photography. There is also being able to take great panoramas as an advantage of the lenses. I honestly didn't expect to see one, never mind three, new TS-E lenses any time soon. While the mainstream lenses aren't getting a ton of love right now it's great to see Canon still putting effort into specialty lenses. Those that use them appreciate it a ton. The price tag keeps the average person away from owning one because no one in their right mind would spend 2 grand on one of these instead of a nice 70-200 that they would use plenty more. But once you have them and use them it changes photography for you. It allows you more creative control, lets you do more to your compositions and saves you time editing in some cases.

Heh, for those few events I've done the 24mm TS-E has been unbeatable, especially for the group shots.

These are replacement lenses for the 45 & 90, both of which will no longer be available after the existing stock is sold.

Is it worthy of getting new one, instead of old ver + extension tube or 100 macro ?

If you can afford it I would like to think so. The separate tilt/shift of the new ones would make it worthwhile. I use an adapted Cambo with a 210mm lens, mainly because I didn't like that the 90mm didn't allow independent tilt and shift direction. I've been getting a bit g.a.s.'y since I saw the 135 TS-E Macro announced.

Maybe Canon is sticking to what they are good at, rather than trying to engineer new lenses for a market already being serviced by Sigma and Tamron? Who isn't making a 70-200? Who is making a TS-E? Product and food photographers will be lining up for the new TS-Es I'd think.
