AnnieMacD - thank you for the nice welcome -and thank you for those excellent test shots. I had been wondering about using (eventually) a 1.4x teleconverter with the T/S - your shots show there isn't much IQ loss at all.

MnUplander - I hope my first ever shot is half as good as yours- nice work!

Gorgeous colours, shadowblade.

OK, here are two more. I included the local Navy Base as there are lots of aerials (antennae) and a small wind sock etc. BTW I forgot to mention another factor is focusing. I made sure I got the focusing confirmation for them all and I have focusing set to single point centred.

1 - No extender

Ken2000ac - do you want me to do a similar test with the 135mmL ?

I mean, I'm already pretty thrilled with what you've provided. Super helpful, especially considering the only other way I've seen these results is to rent one myself (and rental copies will vary in mileage). Your next pint in Edinburgh is on me! So if you want to do another test with the 135, that would be most welcomed too. :)

And Annie,

What do you think personally? Do you find the 2xIII to be usable with the 24 TSE? I don't know if you have a 50mm lens in your arsenal, but how you feel like it compares?

Ken, you are most welcome. I needed to do this for myself too. I do have a 50mm (the 1.4) but I really never use it since I got the 24mm and I'm thinking of selling it. Now, I'm kicking myself that I didn't think of taking it and doing comparison shots with it too. But you don't get the control over perspective etc. I so love the TS-E lens and never use the 50!

Leave it with me (unless you are in a hurry) and I'll take some shots later in the week when the weather gets better again. I have tried the 2x on the 135 and I wasn't very pleased with the result - there appeared to be quite a marked degradation in IQ. But I'll do the comparison more scientifically this time. What do you think of using f11? If I open the lenses up ( esp the 135) there are too many variables. If you have any ideas of how to create a good test I'd be willing to try. I have now added a notebook and pencil to my back-pack!

I guess I never really answered your question directly. My answer is 'Yes' but remember I'm quite new at this and don't have the expertise or experience you guys have. You see I really feel that this gives you two TS lenses. As one has to use manual focusing and manual exposure the chances are you are using a tripod anyway, so for landscape etc, I think the 2X is ideal. (Just my 10 cents)

I just stared at the Original on Flickr for about 5 minutes - I'm encouraged greatly, more than ever, to take the plunge and pick up a 2xIII. It's not razor sharp, but all things considered there's still a fairly high level IQ.

Now to find the funding....

Well, something I realized today that you may want to take into consideration - I had the tripod in the sand and today I did a bit of testing on the 135L and when in Live View with 10x magnification I could see the frame move with the gusts of wind! The shots above have fairly long shutter speeds so there may be some very slight shake as well.

You will be more pleasantly surprised (I think) when you see the 135 results.

So, I may do a couple more with the 24mm with my additional awareness - when there is no wind and not in the sand!

Thanks for the input/heads-up. Being an immigrant, I'm well aware of each gust of wind that smacks me in the face at this latitude, whether that be walking down the street or taking a long exposure. I do look forward to the 135 results, but make no mistake: I do know there are variables to take into account with slightly long shutter speeds, especially in this land. :)

You are a goddess. Thank you for your efforts! Hopefully I'm not the only one who benefits from your generosity.

No problem - I've learned so much myself. I've posted the 135 results here: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1266478

I'm sold. I'm going to start scraping together some funds and hopefully I'll have one before it starts warming up outside.
