TS-E 45mm & TS-E 90mm Finally Getting Replaced? [CR1]
« on: March 15, 2013, 07:25:02 AM »

The L treatment
There are a few reports out there that Canon will finally replace the TS-E 45mm and TS-E 90mm in 2013. We should expect a replacement announcement in Q2 of 2013. Both of these lenses have long been rumoured to be on the replacement docket. No one has come out and said they’ll be “L” replacements, but I think it only makes sense. This would give Canon the largest high end tilt-shift lineup on the market.

Also mentioned in the same announcement breath, was Canon answer to Nikon’s 14-24 f/2.8. A very long awaited lens.

I doubt the new versions would not be Ls - the 17mm & 24mm are L, and making the lenses L will make it easier to justify the inevitable sharp price raise.

I really like the perspective of a normal lens and have been toying with the idea of getting a 45mm ts-e for some creative uses. However, the lens is still expensive and pretty soft. It softer than the 24-70 version 1, way softer than the 50 1.8 even at f/2.8. I'm hoping they make it as good or better than the 50 1.4 at 2.8 and beyond.

Is it really necessary to give TS-E lenses in that long of a focal length category the "L" treatment?
Either way, this is only a [CR1].

I really like the perspective of a normal lens...

I believe that perspective is only affected by moving the camera, not by changing lenses.
"Many will say that focal length also determines the perspective of an image, but strictly speaking, perspective only changes with one's location relative to their subject."
http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/camera-lenses.htm

"In other words, switching from a "normal" lens to one with a greater focal length at the same camera location will have no discernible effect on perspective."
http://scubageek.com/articles/compression.pdf

Yes, but a lens that is roughly equivalent to the diagonal of the sensor will yield images that look normal because it's similar to the way we see the world with our own eyes. For full frame this is close to 50mm. The lens isn't wide angle or tele.... I used perspective instead of field of view because we tend to fill the frame with our subjects. On wide angle this means we get closer than normal and with tele's we get farther away than normal.

Nice if the longer lens had macro capability.   A tilt (no need for shift) 180 macro would be useful

Canon is dead set on becoming "the new Leica".

Once the full frame NEX comes out, I see no reason for me to spend more money on Canon.

The rumored 14-24L is very interesting, but the price tag is going to be hellish (I'm guessing more than 2500 bucks!) .. And besides, they still don't have a worthy sensor for this lens.

Other than the fact that Sony doesn't make tilt shift lenses   ???

Why not make the 45mm ts-e faster? If you can make a 90mm ts-e f/2.8 you can make a 45mm ts-e f/2 or 1.8

Me neither, I am slowly switching to Nikon because of the superior image quality. (I am shooting low-iso only)
But, with almost twenty canon lenses that is a big step for mankind, and some of the Canon lenses are better than the Nikon alternetives....


DCS 3c, D2000, 1DS, 1DS2, 1DS3, D800e and now waiting for the 1DS-X.....or a Nikon D4X...

English is not my native language, I learned  it only a few years ago. If you don't like my spelling, I will be happy to write it in Dutch for you.

To make it even more expensive? The new one will probably be at about 2300$. If you like it faster it would be at 3800 i guess...
