Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8

Review Date: May 21, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,400.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: very sharp at all apertures, creative t/s options, build quality, great color and contrast
Cons:

I use this lens mainly for portrait work in the studio and totally enjoy it. It is amazingly sharp and the tilt/shift effects open many new options for me. Ok, it's manual focus only but i got used to it.

I really like it and bought the 45mm T/S-E shortly after this one because i was so satisfied.

Pros: great zoom range, weather resistance, optical quality, build quality
Cons:
prone to flare / straylight

Canon L Quality as expected. The push/pull zoom is ok for me, no problem as other reviews said. Great solution if you ony want to carry one lens and if you want to travel light but really don't know what focal lenghts are required.
f5.6 at begins quite early in the zoom range.

My only problem with this lens is the lens hood which - of course - cannot help you when using the longer end of the lens.
