Is This One of the New Tilt-Shift Lenses?
« on: August 06, 2017, 04:57:32 PM »
We’ve been sent an image that is apparently one of the new tilt-shift lenses that Canon will be releasing soon. We do not have confirmation of the focal length of the three upcoming tilt-shift lenses, but we’re assuming the 45mm and 90mm version will be replaced and we’ll get a new focal length for the line.

The hood in this image does look different than what appears on the original TS-E 24mm f/3.5L, the version 2 and the TS-E 17mm f/4L.

Is this a new Canon Tilt-Shift? (Original Size)

Below is what we were told about the lens in the image.

  • Release Date: late August – September
  • Currently in the hands of selected photographers.
  • Lens design similar to the 24mm II
  • The hood is different from the TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II

As with all pictures, there’s always a change at modifications being made to the image. However, we are unable to find a Canon TS-E lens with this shape of a lens hood. You can see a knob to the right of the hand, so this is definitely a tilt-shift lens.

As long as they are churning out new EF lens designs, it likely means a new lens series for FF mirrorless is unlikely.

It's fuzzy enough, its gotta be real. Must be shot with a Canon, horrible DR and a low number of pixels.

But that was taken in a pitch black closet and had a 6 stop lift in PP  :o
I'm limping by with my current equipment... once I get that new lens with IS and that blue goo... then I'll finally be able to go out and take my first decent picture...

Judging from the hood it is longer than the 24L II T-SE which would suggest it is a longer lens or has less movement. I still am not convinced however, the focus ring and the lens barrel look like a tse but there isn't enough space behind the hand for the tilt shift mechanism. The knob if there is one would be hidden by the hand. Unless it is a radically different design I don't think this is a tilt shift

We are thinking alike.

You can download the image and lift the shadows to see the knob just to the right of the hand, near the bottom.  It is visible, not covered by the hand.

Canon needs to shake things up. Why not release the 600mm F4 DO and include an integrated 1.4x Tele. Now that would be awesome!

Picture really isn't anywhere near clear enough to gain any insight from it.

You really need to stop posting this on every single thread. And, for the last time, no, there is no market for such a lens, as has been proven many times before.

Considering it's location and the direction it's facing, I think it's a lens collar thumbscrew, not a TS-E's knob.

What camera is that? I do not recognize the bump out nestled in the crook between his thumb and forefinger; is that a silver button?

That looks like one fat lens and a really short hood too. The current TSe 45 has a hood which fits the 85IIL but is shorter...but this hood is even shorter than that. Maybe a new TSe 35mm?

...except the Canon lens collars have the screw on the other side of the lens. Could be a Peak Design Anchor?

Hood depth looks like it's for something in the 30-50mm area. Size wise it looks similar to Sigma's 85/1.4. Could this actually be a slightly recessed front-lens 85/1.4 IS we're looking at?
Preferred gear: 5D IV, 17-40/4L, 35/1.4L, 85/1.8, 70-200/2.8L IS, Elinchrom RX
Backup: 5D II, 70D, Sigma 18-35/1.8 Art, 100-400/4.5-5.6L, Yongnuo + 622

I doubt that for two reasons.

Canon made a 35mm f/2.8 tilt shift lens for the FD mount. Canon could have gone the quick & easy path of converting the FD TS 35mm to EF mount, but rather waited till '91 to introduce completely new and fully manual (read: does not benefit from EF mount's AF abilities) tilt shift lenses for the EF mount in different focal lengths. My guess is Canon made a deliberate choice not to make a TS-E 35mm lens.

Tilt shift lenses are expensive lenses that sell in small numbers. I doubt whether a TS-E 35mm would be profitable enough to make, when people have the option to buy TS-E 24mm + EF 1.4x teleconverter.
