To all,

I just rented this lens, and I had a great time using it.  I kind of wish I didn't rent it since I'm going to have to get me one in the near future.

Here are several images I took using the shift only.  It's too bad you can't use tilt and shift at the same time.  :(

 ???  What makes you think you can't use them together?  It's certainly possible - and the fact you can alter the orientation of the movements relative to one another is a great feature of the TS-E 17L and TS-E 24L II (which the original 24 lacks, as do the current 45 and 90 lenses).

Neuro,

I should have been more specific.  As far as I know, they cannot be used both on the same plane since they are oriented 90 degrees from one another.  Back in the day, while using a field camera, I could shift in the vertical and tilt the lens along the vertical.  With the TS-E, you can shift along the vertical, but only tilt along the horizontal.  Am I missing something?

Hi Wade,

Yes, you're missing something.  As I stated above, it is possible to alter the relative orientation of tilt and shift to one another with the lens - the feature is called TS Rotation (which is distinct from regular rotation).  You can shift in the vertical and tilt in the horizontal (or vice versa) OR both shift and tilt in the vertical (or horizontal). 

Note that I'm assuming that you rented the TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II.  The TS-E 17mm and the MkII version of the TS-E 24mm have the TS Rotation feature.  The original (MkI) version of the 24mm does not, nor do the TS-E 45mm or TS-E 90mm lenses.  Note that with those older designs, it is still possible to have tilt and shift in the same orientation, but it requires removing the shift plate (held in place by four screws), turning it 90°, then reattaching it.  Keith Cooper of Nortlight Images describes that procedure here.   

The difference with the TS-E 17 and 24 MkII is that you can make that change on-the-fly, by simply pressing a button and rotating the front part of the lens.  Not only can you have them at 90° or parallel, it's also possible to have tilt and shift oriented 45° (or any other relative relationship, if you ignore Canon's recommendation) to one another.  The TS Rotation feature is described in the manual.

Thousand Thanks, Sir/ Teacher, Mr neuroanatomist.
I will try  and Report back to you.
Have a great day, Sir.

I've been here before, but my old account is no longer there... Don't know why though...
Anyway, created a new one and why not start with some pictures. I really like the TS-E 24mm. It’s not an easy lens, especially if you want to increase the dof by tilting (the opposite of the miniature effect) but it can give you results like no “normal” lens can.

November is not the most inspirational time of the year, but there is always something. The issue with these kinds of pictures is in my view wether to freeze the water with a fast shutter speed or smooth it out. The trick is not to loose the motion and energy in the water.
Love this lens by the way.
