Rented this lens for a weekend. Addictive. Simply addictive.

Hope you don't mind my rookie T/S shot, but this was one of my faves. I'm amazed by the miniature effect and focus isolation. Handheld on a 7D:

Just arrived today. Used the 90mm t and s at f/2.8 to take a quick shot.

I actually ordered a Zeiss distagon 21mm ZE, but I've got a TS-E24II try for a while.
(here's the story about that: http://photography-on-the.net/forum/...&postcount=169)

This lens is so incredibly sharp, it must be the sharpest canon lens I've ever tried (and I own/have tried some great lenses) and no CA. Incredible.
The tilt and shift is fun.

When the Zeiss is back in stock, I can choose. Keep the TS-E24II and pay extra or exchange it for the zeiss.
Although I had desided to buy the Zeiss, I'm in doubt now

These guys at the shop know what they do....

Keep the TS-E 24, and then try the TS-E 17 while you're at it ...

Kind regards, Wim

They suggested me to take the Zeiss 18mm with me till the 21mm would be in stock, but I asked about the TS-E24II. No problem, they wanted to offer a solution. Few moments later they came back with a TS-E17 (remember, I paid for a zeiss 21 which is a LOT cheaper), but no thanks. That one is just too expensive, so I didn't want to take that one with me to try

The TSE24L II shifted horizontally both ways and stitched together will give you a much wider AOV than the 21mm Zeiss. Then use a touch of tilt to make the focus plane along the ground and you have the perfect landscape lens for digital bodies.

Nothing special, just a testshot in the backyard. This lens has great flare and CA control!

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).

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.

I bought this lens in Bangkok a month ago before heading out to an archaeological dig in the northeast of the country. It's my first TS lens and I'm still at the base of the learning curve.

I thought this would be a great lens for photographing into and down in the pits we're digging - e.g. to correct perspective and to get good depth of field at fast apertures (not much light in the pits). It shows a lot of promise, but still very much gettiing the hang of it. Had a go below at using the tilt up to place a narrow band of focus over the artefacts at the bottom of the pit.

The last one of the dig team at rest I have no idea what I did... somehow managed to get a band of focus straight down the centre











And an attempt at foreground to background focus with a wide aperture of F5 - allowed a fast enough shutter speed to avoid wind blur on the grass.
