No, it's not: CPL = circular polariser. It's not good practice to use linear polarisers with digital, although in this case there's no auto focusing that the linear polarisation would mess up.

The 4x4 cpl is linear right? From what I understand you can rotate it like a regular circular polarizer?

It is circular not linear and yes you can rotate it like a regular circular polarizer. Where you start having issues is if you are using a GND, that's why they offer the 105mm CPL's that rotate independently than the other filters, they are pricey though and by turning the 4x4 CPL in 90 degree increments you can usually get the effect you are looking for.

Las Médulas (As Médulas or As Meduas in Galician language) is a historical site near the town of Ponferrada in the region of El Bierzo (province of León, Castile and León, Spain), which used to be the most important gold mine in the Roman Empire. Las Médulas Cultural Landscape is listed by the UNESCO as one of the World Heritage Sites.

The spectacular landscape of Las Médulas resulted from the ruina montium, a Roman mining technique described by Pliny the Elder in 77 AD. The technique employed was a type of hydraulic mining which involved undermining a mountain with large quantities of water. The water was supplied by interbasin transfer. At least seven long aqueducts tapped the streams of the La Cabrera district (where the rainfall in the mountains is relatively high) at a range of altitudes. The same aqueducts were used to wash the extensive gold deposits.

Pliny also stated that 20,000 Roman pounds of gold were extracted each year.[3] The exploitation, involving 60,000 free workers, brought 5,000,000 Roman pounds (1,650,000 kg) in 250 years. (wikipedia)

Anyone had trouble changing the shift knob for the larger one?

The manual say just unscrew the small screw (as in just the screw comes loose) but mine unscrews the small knobs metal insert, which the screws fix into.

Am I missing something?

This thread has ruined me. It's so hard to look at other lens' shots and not go 'man, that would so much better with the 24 T/S. Today's example (from a thread with many spectacular shots, done with a lens I own):

That's weird; the only thing that should come off is the small screw. :confused:

I just did this today. Did you unscrew the Shift knobs center screw and not the Tilt knob? The little center screw of the shift know comes out and you slip the larger knob sleeve over the existing knob and then insert the provided larger screw. Save the other smaller screw and store in box. Done.

Just bite the bullet and get one for yourself! I took a similar shot with a Sigma 35 and the TS-E 24 II and while both are great, the TS-E24 is noticeably sharper at 1:1. Having the shift function is great too, photoshop loves stitching together pics/you don't loose any of your frame from geometric distortion.

Yes , the shift knob , If i unscrew the screw , everything circled in the below image comes out, I tried to see if I could unscrew the screw from the the insert but its seems attached and meant to be there.

Yeah, pretty well there, but having just dropped $4.5k on new gear, I need to sell some older gear first (see sig). This may even (gasp) replace my beloved 16-35, giving me a 3 lens, all prime lineup.

Looking forward to trying that (especially if I can work out the L bracket left/right adjustment thing), but as a working lens (first), the high value job will be rather the reverse of what seems to be the popular 24 TSE uses. I want to create perspective distortion and increasing DOF, mostly on close/tiny subjects. For my uses, the MFD is a key feature on this lens!

Can't help but bring it with me on beautiful days. My better half is guarding my Alhambra center frame.

Very cool, I just sold my 17-40 and now have the Rokinon 14mm, TS-E 24mm, and Sigma 35 which I've been using for all my landscape needs, working great so far!

Just received my 24mm f/3.5L II Thursday. Haven't had a chance to really see it shine yet but I was able to get away just before sunset yesterday and take this. I used the tilt feature to try and keep foreground/background both in focus. I focused foreground and moved 10x liveview to background and tilted until buildings came in focus. I had a hard time keeping the entire building in background in focus. If I adjusted for the bottom of buildings to be in-focus the top would be soft and vice-versa. Not enough DOF I suppose. Had a good time though. Looking forward to continued learning with this great lens.

Drove up to Glencoe on Friday night for sunset as it had been a really nice day.

9 images (Shift left, centre, shift right) (-2EV, 0, +2EV) to create 3 panos which were blended in SNS-HDR.
