Bryan at The-Digital-Picture has completed his review of the Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Tilt-Shift Macro.
From the review:
This lens has very good image quality, it is strongly-built, it has unique features and it is very useful. That list of values is a solid one. But, as with the other TS-E L lenses, there is a price to be paid for the package. The TS-E 50 f/2.8L is not an inexpensive lens and I’m sure that price will be the biggest limiting factor for sales. Some will have no problem with the cost and will quickly recoup their investment. Others will struggle to justify spending this much for a specialty lens. For those photographers, an occasional rental may work perfectly. Read the full review
We should be shocked that these new tilt-shift lenses are as good as they are. Beyond landscape use, unique looking images, the TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro has become quite popular with architecture photographers that we know.
