Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8

Review Date: Apr 15, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $900.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp sharp sharp. Ultra-precise focusing ring.
Cons:
Reversed tilt knob is taking some getting used to.

I now own all 3 Canon T/S lenses, the 90mm being the most recent purchase. It should have been the first purchase... Fantastic lense. It seems to be sharp everywhere, and nearly as sharp wide-open at f2.8 as it is at f8. My only complaint is that the tilt knob is reverse operated from the other 2 canon T/S lenses.

Pros: Great length on a 5D Great color Good performance Best lowlight handheld lense Canon makes
Cons:
Minor C/A Extreme fall off at f1.4 Fringing of blown out/high contrast areas at f1.4

Even with it's few flaws, this lense is quite possibly my single most used lense. The performance wide open in dark spaces is in a league of it's own, bar none. Serious low light shooters dream lense. It's fast focusing, allows shallow DOF at wide angle, is a great size/weight, and performs well on full frame. The 35L performs better technically, but 24mm is such a great width and so much more flexible than a 35mm lense in my opinion. Definitely one of my favorite lenses.
