3 new lenses released from Canon, all tilt shift which could produce some interesting shots.

Yes that's a downside, and I'm surprised Canon are advertising them as macro lenses because of that.

"Macro" is often a term of art thrown into lens advertising without being defined.

My ProMaster 70-300mm non-stabilized zoom from about 2008 says "macro" too. I certainly wouldn't use it for that.

The two definitions I have seen are:
1. Lens capable of rendering the subject life size on the sensor/film.
2. Lens capable of rendering the subject life size on a print. (this always seemed fuzzy to me)

I have always considered #1 a macro photo.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

It's not at all unusual to see companies, for marketing purposes, stretch the definition to lenses capable of producing images of less than subject life size.

I disagree with such usages, but I have no control over the users.

Oh, I know, some stretch it really far. :)

I thinking Nikon have have a .5x macro perspective control lens for a while so this is filling a missing market area.

Of course for archecture the normal 24 and 17 mm T&S lenses are the thing.

These are probably more directed for product photography where the magnification is enough and the persoective control essential.

I am trying to rememember but I think only the old 24mm T&S was updated and not the 45 and 90 mm, so I guess these replace those (at a cost).

In the old film days a lot of macro lenses only went to 1/2 times life size without an adapter or tube. And 35mm film was the size of FF. So the frame width was only 72mm, roughly the same I get with my Canon 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L IS II on a crop sensor body.

The 135mm lens looks quite interest for macro. Although ideally it could do with a rotating tripod mount (I realise that would be difficult with all the tilt and shift apparatus at the back.
