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
