Seeing as there isn't yet a thread for this amazing lens, I thought I'd start one off with a few pics:


EOS 5D Mark II, TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II, 1/2 s, f/8, ISO 100, +12 shift


EOS 5D Mark II, TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II, 1/20 s, f/18, ISO 100, +12 shift


EOS 5D Mark II, TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II, 6 s, f/8, ISO 100, +6 shift
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Now I really regret the decision of doing away with my 5D2...

...and very tempted to "borrow" the TS-E 24mm II from the department's storage room. *lol*

PS: Neuro, have you tried using polarizing filter with the TS-E 24mm II?

Yep.  I have an 82mm B+W Käsemann CPL (Slim mount, becuase I also use it on the 16-35mm II) that does very well on the TS-E 24mm II.

Question: does the amount of tild or shift applied get recorded in the metadata or do you have to remember?

No, it does not get recorded in the metadata - tilt, shift, and rotation are purely mechanical and the settings are not transmitted to the camera.  You have to remember, or write it down.  The only -E (= electronic) part of the lens is the aperture control.  As a side note there, even that can be 'broken' when you use a TS-E lens with an extender - they are compatible (although the TS-E manual indicates that extenders cannot be used), but the aperture data are improperly recorded in the EXIF header.

Thanks! I was a bit afraid there's going to be obvious vignetting with the 82mm filter.

This is one of those time where I wish there's special filter holders designed for the 17mm (something along the line of Lee's filter holder for the Nikkor 14-24). Having the option of using a filter really makes a difference...

Not much risk of that - the image circle of the new TS-E lenses (17mm and 24mm II) is huge!  The only reason the hood fot the 24mm II is so short is that when you apply a lot of shift, you get vignetting (but then, you get vignetting on the side of the shift even with no filter or hood mounted).  At shifts up to ±8, there's no vignetting and no effect of adding a filter - even the CPL stacked on top of the MRC UV (F-Pro mount) is fine.  Above ±8, you start to see some shading - but removing the filters doesn't help significantly, so it seems to be an optical 'feature' of the lens.

very cool pics from everyone, great to see the variety of things you can do with this lens in straightening out the vertical lines and adding in more blur. Very very cool.

Check these shots, where I attempted to use the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 II lens to capture how big/small the Flagstaff meteor crater really is.
