If you aren’t sure what this is, you don’t want it.

The TS-E 45mm f/2.8, Canon’s mid-range tilt-shift lens, allows correction of distortion for architectural work and product shots, modifications to depth of field (in focus from near field to infinity or artistic blurring), and a very accurate way to shoot multiple shots for a panorama. The 45mm TS-E is considered probably the sharpest of the original (Mk I) TS-E lenses.

If you haven’t used one before, please note that this lens has a learning curve, is manually focused, and takes practice to use effectively. I can’t tell you exactly how much practice, just that it’s more practice than I’ve had. However, even I can get some pretty nice images, control my depth of field nicely, make a panorama easily, etc. To do architectural work, a bit of chimping with trial-and-error or a reasonable amount of photographic knowledge is necessary. Even without being an expert with tilt-shift, though, its a lens I find myself using more and more. The more I use it, the better it gets. The better it gets, the more I use it.
