I know the threads for giving names is usually around the time the lens was released but do you name your 24 TSE?

Because everytime i look at it attached to my 6D makes me say "fat tool". Now i guess it is fat tool for me lol

Call it ( back up ) if You own a TSE 17mm too.:wink:

I guess I see the inner beauty of the TS-E 24. Fat and clumsy and knobbly and ugly --- none of this even comes up on the horizon when I think of the TS-E 24. Instead I think of agile and graceful and, most of all, *precision*. Sure on the outside it is bulky, heavy and apparently clumsy. But it is eye-splitting razor sharp from corner-to-corner, and its movements give so much incredible control over perspective and focus that I think of it as a incredibly agile, deft, powerful *precision* tool.

So for me it is the ultimate precision tool of light crafting, and in my mind I refer to it as a "light scalpel".

Not catchy, I know. But that's how I see it.

If I wanted catchy, I suppose I might call it the "the little shifty" (as opposed to its wider-angle counterpart, "the big shifty")?

But really, folks -- I think it is a tool that is at home as much in the hands of a surgeon as an artist (or a big clumsy galoot such as myself!).

The Knobster.

That's even funnier in British English.

And then I saw the next poster's screen name...

You should call it the chode. I'm an Aussie and we are pretty big on calling things something other than their name but camera lenses probably aren't on that list. Each to their own.

It wasn't the how. It was the why?
