Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8

Available Today

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

For those who do, this is a standard format, full tilt and shift manual focus lens, one of four in Canon’s lineup. The 90mm, along with the Canon TS-E 45mm f/2.8, is generally thought to be among the sharpest lenses in Canon’s line up. Please note: this is a manual focus lens best used by those who either already know or have time to learn how to use it effectively.

We usually are very helpful when you have questions about equipment. In this case, we’ll be limited to comments like “Really!” and “isn’t that interesting!” and "another customer told us that. . . " None of us have gotten past hacker status with this lens, but even hackers can use it to manipulate the depth of field and, with a little trial and error, to adjust parallel lines to straighten perspective when shooting architecture. Overall, it’s a most handy lens when the need arrises.

One thing I’ll mention (again) after an experience last week – if you call and tell us the autofocus is broken we’ll tell you not to play with the big-boy toys at recess anymore. All tilt-shift lenses are manual focus only.
