hi all!
i have the TS-E 24mm 3.5 (version 1)on the (5dm2) and it is hands down the sharpest lens i have ever used.

as far as i can tell, the difference between the old version and the new version is the fact that you can rotate the tilt to shift without removing the 4 set screws on the lens. otherwise, i think the glass is exactly the same.

when i got my lens, the tilt and the shift were aligned with each other. i pulled the screws out and set the tilt to shift back to the factory alignment.

i am doing the conversion again back to the other way right now actually.

would anyone like to see photos of the conversion?
if so, should i start a new thread showing the details of the operation?

You wish, I've had both and the Mk2 is considerably sharper!

But the really big difference is the lack of CA on the Mk2.

I had both and the new one is much improved. Basically its even sharper, has less CA, shifts more and has less vignetting.

Yeah Mark II is worlds better. CA is better. Sharpness. Contrast.

It has the sub-wave coatings and such.

My fingers were nearly frozen, not easy to twist those tilt&shift knobs in this cold weather.

ok ok ok
hehe, i do admit i havent used the version 2, and i havent even looked at the reviews, however i did look at one at penn camera and i got my information from the sales guy.

regardless, my 24mm TS-E is still the sharpest lens i have ever used. probably because of the larger image area the lens projects..

my issue with the lens, is the meter becomes totally useless when using the tilt or shift.

i remember the sales guy saying that that was another advantage over the new lens, the metering was more accurate.

I have yet to use the lens while taking video, i would venture to guess that the TS-E in video could open up some cool creative avenues.

Actually, with any TS-lens you need to meter before you tilt and/or shift, and that is also true with the new ones (IOW, you need ot use manual mode). The weird angles of the light coming in when shifted and/or tilted upsets the metering system.

AFAIK, it isn't a problem with video.

Kind regards, Wim

It will work fine, just one thing to know:

Cameras with a popup flash can be a bit more annoying because you'll have to use the small shift button on the lens.
With for example a 5D (which doesn't have a popup flash) you can mount a bigger knob on the lens for shifting, which is more comfortable.

Who sells these bigger knobs and what's involved in installing it?

Cheers!

Mine came with a bigger knob, it just snaps on over the existing knob.
