I have decided to keep the TS-E24II instead of the Zeiss 21ZE that I originally ordered.
The control over perspective and depth of field is addicting and it's just fun to use.
This is the best canon lens I've tried so far. It -for example- puts my 35L to shame in pure image quality (but ofcourse, that lens has other qualities).

try and not make me to dissapointed, I just picked up a UW datecode - last of its kind MK I iteration of this lens. Is it worse and if so why?? I thought id ask here as you guys would know.
What do you mean exactly? Are you asking about the date code or how it compares to the mkII version?
Date code doesn't matter I think, haven't heard anything about bad ts-e24 date codes.
Compared to the TS-E24II:
It's not as good.
The mark II is sharper, has better CA control, has a nicer build and you can rotate tilt & shift both independently.
Don't feel bad, the mark I is a lot cheaper.
