The Great Divorce: How fast are you at setting all of the tilt/shift settings when taking a shot with the lens? Also, do you hand-hold shots or are all of your TS shots on a tripod?

Any info would be great as I'm really keen to hear from someone who actually produces amazing shots from a TS.

babuska, i use the 85L for a lot of stuff. the mk. II really isn't that slow. prefocusing helps a lot. if you really learn the lens, it's very capable and versatile. i really think that people who have a ton of issues just haven't learned the lens well enough. it does have limitations, but it's better than people make it out to be. all about the practice :)

Thanks a lot!!!
What was frustrating to me was that I was seeing some amazing, beautiful images with this lens, and I really was wanting to get it in the future, so when I was hearing those cons I thought, "Say it isn't so!!". I didn't want to spend so much money for one lens that would be so much trouble.

Thanks for the insight. Again, I enjoyed your images!

Brian, when I actually get around to buying one, I think it'll be the 45. Or the 24. haha.

cina, i generally just set the tilt and leave it. mostly at full tilt. i switch it from end to end pretty quick. i find it really easy to manually focus it, too. i've honestly never even used the shift feature. can't figure out what it's for beyond architecture. and i don't even know where my tripod is ... somewhere in a closet, i suspect ;)

babuszka, you're most welcome. the 85L's a lot of work to learn to use, and it does make you work a little harder than some lenses, but the rewards are equally greater.

Thanks for the info :D

Have you tried the 90mm TSE? I'm really struggling to decide between the 45 and 90mm. I sometimes find that with a 50mm f/1.2 that the focal length is a little limiting for close-in portraits on my 5D. But then again maybe it's better as there isn't much point in using a TS lens close in... I also heard the 90mm TSE is one of Canon's sharpest lenses... Ahh decisions...

Any thoughts from your experience with the 45mm on full frame?

I haven't tried the 90mm, but I've heard a lot of good things about it. I just know that I wouldn't use it as much, personally. I like working pretty close, though, and rarely use anything longer than an 85mm (and most often a 35), so the 45 works pretty well for me. I think if you mostly think you'll be doing headshot type work with it, the 90 should be fine. Also if you prefer to work a little further back.

Hope that helps :)

Great stuff! Question, did you only use existing light for the 3rd shot?

These are great. The color in the bride's eyes really jumps out at you in the first shot. Very beautiful image.
