Canon 42mm f/2.8 TS-E, anyone heard of this?
« on: May 23, 2012, 10:53:59 PM »
My local shop has a used 42mm f/2.8 TS-E, I thought I was hallucinating when I saw it but it's definitely a 42mm.  They said it was very rare, but I can't find anything on Google (very weird).  Anyone heard of this before?

Odd!  There is a TS-E 35mm f/2.8 in the FD mount, but I've never heard of a 42mm lens...

I haven't either, they wanted $1k for it.  Such an odd focal length, not sure what to make of it.

Are you sure it's not a 24mm with the numbers reversed (i.e. it says 42mm both on the body & the front of the lens bbl)?

See if you can borrow/rent it for a day & post the EXIF data :-).  Or just shoot a few test shots with it in the store...

I'll see what I can do, and yes it's definitely not a 24mm

Ok I stopped by and checked, it was actually a 45mm TS-E, but the tag was labeled (and still is labeled) 42mm f/2.8.  I was sure that I had seen 42mm written on the side of the lens, but after doing some thinking I realized that this picture form Northlight images is where I had seen 42mm before (and it's fake of course):

Wild as opposed to a domesticated Canada Goose?  They'd make a mess of the house.

A good lesson to never trust shop descriptions, particularly non-specialsits!  My local branch of Wants (a UK based pawn shop) is trying to sell a Canon mount "Jessops 58mm" lens ::)
