Is there much love here for the 24mm TS-E mark I?

I'm looking at getting either this or the Mark II version, ideally due to cost a used Mark I comes out nearlly half the cost so seems most attractive.

I can stretch to the Mark II but will be on bread and water for a while afterwards..:lol:.. for those who have used either or both....would you stretch to V2 or be happy with the Mark I?.

Thanks in advance.

Might be worthwhile to wait for the Samyang 24mm TSE

Thanks , I did look at doing that, that would come out around the same as a used Mark I.

But the Samyang features are similar to the Canon Mark II (independent axis, number of lens groups). The big questions are image quality and construction.

Some people have questions about the use of plastic in Samyang lenses. Personally, I think they feel like they are built like a tank. But heavy use may prove otherwise. But since I don't overuse my lenses, it may work out for me. Provided, of course, that the lens delivers image quality similar to the Samyang 14mm that I own.

Hi jayrou,

I have had the mk1 for years and use it for wide angle panoramic, spherical panos and in camera architectural perspective correction. I have never had a problem with he tilt and shift being at 90 degrees to each other. If it is a problem then it's a ten minute job with a screwdriver to change once you have found the online instructions. However it not something that I've needed to do.

Unless the mk2 has significantly better image quality or you need to change the alignment of tilt and shift on a regular basis then save the money and get the mk1

All the best

I have a Mk1 and I am quite happy with it.
Sure I would like a Mk2 but I cannot justify £16-1700 for one,if I earned my living with it that would be a different matter.
As far as I am concerned it does what it says on the tin but yes it would be nice to have the independant rotation of tilt and shift instead of needing to take the lens apart.

If you do get one and you have an android phone or tablet then look at DSLR Controller.
It enables you to plug your camera into your phone and view the shot in real time and zoom in for focussing.
It makes a world of difference when using tilt.

Thanks, I have no problem looking at the Samyang , I've considered the 14mm myself before I got the 16-35.. cheers.

Thats very encouraging thanks, It was the IQ of the V1 that worried me slightly along with CA, I had read its was on par with the 16-25 mark I, is that something you could agree with?

Much appreciated Troutfisher, so independent rotation can be achieved with the mark i with some alteration?... how do you find the IQ on yours?
I do use Android so thats something I didn't know , cheers

I think the IQ on mine is OK and thats comparing it with with my other lenses which apart from one are all 'L',but I cannot compare it with a Mk2 TS-E for obvious reasons
This https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=150307 is the lens archive for the Mk1which should give you some idea.
One thing I do wonder about is the Mk1 reputedly was soft and exhibited poor CA,(something which I have not seen to any great degree) but since it was first released software has made dramatic improvements in terms of lens correction and I suspect that photos processed today are a lot better than those processed some years ago.

Cheers
