This pushes this lens exclusively into a live view only lens.

Personally, that's pretty much how I use my TS-E and is almost essential for me when using tilt - I stop it down and then use LV and zoom to check focus around the image.

At least the 17mm TS-E has some interesting optical characteristics too that make checking the entire image in LV a good idea for landscapes where you want everything sharp. Although one nice thing is that the infinity mark is really infinity for all apertures - it's one lens that I absolutely do use the focus scale on.

For tilt, yes. But I use my TS-E (the 45mm) a lot on buildings with shift. Very useful when running around in a city. In bright sunshine a liveview only lens get a big usability dent. Unless I carry a poncho and look like a 1920's photographer with my camera under it :)


My imagine composition sucks. I need a heavier lens.

Same here, Live View all the way.
When the camera is close to the ground I use an external monitor

They also come with a very deep monitor hood that is neoprene for folding up.

Same pond, more light. Straight out of camera, as I said earlier might need some exposure push. Focus on far shore branches on floor.

Full open f/3.5, no shift, no tilt.

Was coming here to share this link as well. I was interested in the wide open performance, but from TDP's test shots, it is pretty soft. Bummer.

Agreed. It's It's a major bummer...

I had such high hopes for this lens, as with other Samyangs I couldn't be happier with sharpness. But this one seems kinda unacceptable. :confused:

Well, I was able to spend some time with the Samyang 24mm TS. First, to me the build quality was fine no concerns there for me. The IQ on my copy I did have concerns, wide open was very soft (which I already knew from TDP.com) but from f/8-f/16 where I will be using it was fine in the center but corners and far sides were very soft (no T/S) with T/S they became more so. Mostly shot on a tripod w/mirror lock-up and shutter cable.
Sorry to say the Samyang went back today, I need to look elsewhere for a landscape lens

Too bad. Seemed like a lot of people had high hopes on this lens. The alternatives are so expensive, out of the grasp of many.
