Review: Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro
« on: January 15, 2018, 09:58:38 AM »
Photography BLOG has completed their review of the brand new Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro.

This appears to have already been quite a popular lens with Canon shooters, as I’ve received tons of thoughts and praises for the lens. I do know a couple of interior and architectural photographers that have been using a lot since getting their hands on it.

As expected, this new tilt-shift lens from Canon performs up to expectations.

This is a very specialist lens which is not for everybody. The high asking price probably precludes most enthusiasts, but for those who have a need for such a lens, you’ll probably find that it gets a lot of usage. It’s the perfect lens to rent for a couple of weeks to see whether you like it before investing in – you may also want to rent the other two new lenses to see which matches your personal preferences best.

Overall, the Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro Lens is a very impressive performer. Having the macro ability, as well as the L series designation makes it a fantastic improvement on the previous TS-E 45mm f/2.8 tilt shift lens, but you do of course pay a premium for it. Read the full review

Pre-ordered this lens early fall. By the time it arrived snow was on the ground and all my architectural intensions were put  on hold. Played with it for a while and it is very sharp, great tilt shift crutch  for portraits and great macro. Very versatile, but demands deliberation. Novelty gone, now it sits on a shelf until the next food, product or editorial gig rolls in.
A few bodies, lenses and lots of flash

Can't wait for this lens to start appearing in used market. I bought both 17 TSE and 24 MkII. TSE used for about 70% of retail price (excellent condition, trusted retailer, 6 month warranty). I hope for something similar with this one in the future.
