Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L

Review Date: Sep 14, 2022 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Creates out this world look for your photos. Hard to explain!
Cons:
I had to send it to Canon to clean it and fix electric issues and when sent back the lowest aperture is 4.0 instead of 3.5.

The only real problem with the lens is that the tilt and shift axes are "fixed" and not easily moved. However, for most landscape photography the range of movements are more than adequate. The lens is also a bit bulky, but that's to be expected given it's combination of capabilities and rock solid build. The first thing to do after buying this lens is to send it back to Canon service so that they will make the tilt and shift movements parallel. I am a wedding photographer and this is the lens I create the most artistic images. You can see some of my wedding photos here: www.haringphotography.com

Pros: Sharp, cheap compared to 8-15L, Sigma quality, Fits underwater dooms!!!!
Cons:
no filters possible

I love this lens! I use it for mainly underwater photography. It is better than the 17-40mm lens because of colors and corner sharpness. It fits into the camera port nicely. I was thinking about getting the 8-15Llens but I wasn't impressed but the quality difference when taken underwater. My diver/photographer friends has the 8-15mm L. Not impressed at all considering the price. Buy this Sigma instead.
You can see a sample couple under the water here: http://www.tengerpartieskuvo.com/
There are two images taken wit the sigma, the 5th (couple from below and the 10th one, couple kissing)
Barely noticeable distortion and the clients loved the shot. I use a software to get rid/correct the fish eye effect when I take photos of people.
Highly recommended!
