Canon TS-E owners, do you use the Metabones adapter with your lens? Has anyone tried the MC-11 from Sigma? I want to get the TS-E 24 from Canon but would like some feedback on performance with certain adapters.

I have used both the 17 and 24 TSE with the Metabones IVT. No issues other than the occasional loss of comm with the camera, I think it is the play in the mount that sometimes causes those very heavy lenses to flex the mount on the adapter just a tiny bit...I will be adding them both to my arsenal at some point...hopefully in 2017...

I think I just read there might be an adapter for tilt-shift on the Laowa 12mm. Does that interest anyone?

I saw that - could be interesting, but I really feel like the Canon TS-E 17mm already pushes the limits on an ultra-wide tilt-shift lens. Requires a Canon-mount version of the lens, though, so Alfredo and I can't try it out since we have the native E-mount version.

Absolutely right David. A dedicated TS-E lens would likely perform better.

Finished the black and white edit on the Tesoro Building. These types of images challenge me which is why I'm drawn to them. The conditions were not quite ideal for this type of shot since the sun had peeked through a cloud leaving a very difficult reflection to repair. The darker areas in the front of the building are reflections of the clouds. Yep, this building is highly reflective making it a difficult subject to capture.

really nice, I like the highlight and reflections on the building. Was this a true LE, or a JT type?

85GM. The more I use this lens, the more I love it. Like a good marriage, things only get better after the honemoon phase :-)


The natural inclination when shooting with this lens is to open the aperture up all the way...particularly in the honeymoon phase. I've found that the sweet spot is actually f1.7. The lens sharpens up even more, CA is gone, and the images have more contrast and punch to them. The OOF rendering of the GM is so good that you don't miss much by stopping the lens down either.

Awesome! 10-stop ND? Or even darker?

Thanks! I used the 16 Stop Firecrest ND filter. I shot this around 3 pm.

Thanks pre.

Yes definitely worth the money for portraiture.

Most 85's involve trade-offs....Basically bokeh and skin tones vs contrast and sharpness.

The 85GM seems to tick all of the boxes.
