p.1 #1 · Modified 24mm ts-e question


Hi,
I found a good deal on a 24mm ts-e it seems in great shape but the lens as been modified so both tilting and shifting can be used on the same plane(since i am new to the t and s world i have no idea what that means)he told me it was done by canon and it was not because the lens ad some sort of damage.
My question is first would this affect in any way IQ or the built quality and can it also affect the value of the lens.

Thanks every one

Alexis

I saw not that long ago that it can easily be undone. Canon will charge you about $80 for it (IIRC), but it's nothing more than unscrewing it, rotating 90 degrees (dictated by the cable), and screwing it again.

I thus the resale value would be affected much.

It is just a matter of removing the 4 screws and rotating 90. Be careful with the electrical connections though.

It's super easy to change it back so I would buy it if you're looking for that lens.

I also bought one used and one of the first things I did with this lens was to change tilt and shift into the same plane. You might want to consider keeping it in this way when you get this lens. I found it a lot more useful if T/S can be used in the same plane instead of having it 90 degrees rotated. In any case, the conversion is very simple as mentioned above. Enjoy this lens, $725 is a good deal!

Yes, if you tilt down 2 degrees everything is in focus from your feet to infinity.

Sure but that works the other way too. It depends on which direction one wants to shift relative to tilt. The 24 TSE II is much more versatile in that the two axes are adjustable relative to each other.
