Specifications:
Normal lens featuring tilt and shift movements. The floating system and rear focusing give sharp and stable delineation from 1.3 ft. (0.4m) to infinity. The 45mm focal length is ideal for obtaining a natural-looking perspective.

Pros: Much sharper than 24mm TSE
Cons:
Not many, does'nt work well on a 300D runs into the prism when rotated

If it does'nt move you DONT need an XPAN. The 45TSE is often neglected but the best of the three. Why spend a fortune on a 1Ds when all you have to do is attach your 300D and instant 16MP from this lens and a natural perspective. Crank the shift the other way and you have a near XPAN image.

Not as sharp as the 90mm TSE but not far off the 50mm 1.4 in the centre drops off on the edges but still very good. This is a cost saver if you have 1.3X or 1.6X.

Pros: Tilt and Shift, very sharp, little distortion
Cons:
No AF, best to meter before the tilt or shift for accurate exposure

I really like this lens. I have its 90mm and 24mm bretheren, but held off getting this one due to its "boring" normal focal length. BUT after seeing what it can do, I now more fully appreciate it. Being able to crank in a few degrees of tilt to extend DOF to the max is a huge plus in my landscape shots. Cranking in counter-tilt to generate an extremely shallow DOF, thus creating a very unique look is also very cool.
