Further clarification and corrections on our previous reports regarding the new tilt-shift lenses that are coming.

We’re told that we were incorrect on the TS-E 45mm f/2.8L and that it is in fact a TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro, the TS-E 90mm f/2.8L was correct, except that it to, will have macro functionality. We also assumed that all of the lenses are f/2.8L, but we’re told that the TS-E 135mm is actually an f/4L with macro capability.

The macro feature is 1:2 and not 1:1 across all three of the new tilt-shift lenses.

We also received further information in regards to the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS, a lens I’m looking forward to.

The new tilt-shift lenses

  • TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro
  • TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro
  • TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro
  • All these new tilt-shift lenses have 1:2 (0.5x) macro magnification

Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM

  • Positioned between the EF 85mm f/1.2L II and the EF 85mm f/1.8
  • Same styling as the new EF 35mm f/1.4L II
  • Fast AF and a 4 stop effective IS.

All of this is still [CR2] until we get the confirmation that makes us comfortable with upgrading the rating of the rumor. This round of lenses has been extremely hard to get information on, but we do hope we have now got the correct information.

We’re still told everything is coming at the end of August.

Update: 18:09 EST, August 12, 2017: We’ve upgraded this information to [CR3]

Well, 135/4 means it might take the MT-20EX flash mount ring - still curious to see how much tilt it will take...

50 f/2.8?  135 f/4?  Only 1:2 max mag?  Maybe they are being made in Malaysia.  :P   (I know, I know, L lenses are Japan.)

And with the 85 f/1.4L IS, something that will be demonstrably sharper, have much faster AF and an industry first f/1.4 IS is not going to be positioned anywhere other than the top of the line.  I'm simply not buying this new wrinkle of news.  This is going to be a pricey as hell lens.

I might be tempted by the TS-E 135/4L Macro.  I wonder if these new lenses will be compatible with TCs like the current TS-E lenses.

Are they likely to be compatible with ET's?

Canon seems to put on emphasis on macro lenses. They released cheap crop macro lens. Now this expensive bunch. They see something in the market place compared to others.

Yes.  Pretty much every lens is compatible with extenstion tubes (only issues are with wider lenses and longer tubes).  A 135mm lens won't get as much benefit from standard tubes, though (you'd need to stack a few).

Yes - I see a use for my rather nice Novoflex EF bellows (min 58mm extension)

I think my old TS-E 90mm already has a macro ratio of 1:2 even if it's not called a macro lens...

The advert in the middle of this article, right in my line of sight, is a great example of why I use an ad blocker. A while ago I disabled it for this site, which I want to support, but it's going back on.

It seems like a good time to say my sigma 85a farewell :(

You sure about that?  TDP says it's a 0.29x max mag (without tubes, of course).

Me too. I wonder though why the new 85mm will be positioned between the EF EF 85 f/1.2L II and the EF 85mm f/1.8. I guess it will be the best of them all and will going to be pricey.

No, 0.29x (MFD is 0.5 metre)

I thought it was 1:3 (that the Nikon was 1:2).  with an extender got to 1:2
