The TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II Tilt-Shift Lens from Canon
is a wide-angle lens for EF mount cameras. It provides tilt-shift
functions to control perspective and correct convergence of lines within
your frame. It is especially useful in architecture, landscape, and
product photography. The optical tilt mechanisms enable precise control
of depth of field along with perspective control.
function on the 24mm f/3.5 lens allows adjustment of the focal plane by
an angle of +/-8.5º and enables parallel shift of the optical axis by
+/-12mm. Both tilt and shift can be engaged singly and in combination.
The tilt-shift rotation mechanism locks at right angle and at parallel
and clicks at 45º and the lens mount itself can rotate left or right by
90º with click-stop adjustment each 30º.
Being a Canon L-series
lens, its optical design and physical structure are optimal. Aspherical
and ultra-low dispersion lens elements suppress aberrations and
provide sharp delineation. Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) reduces
ghosting and flare and truly circular diaphragm results in pleasing
out-of-focus backgrounds. The focus ring on the lens provides precise
manual focus action and the tilt and shift knobs are sturdy and control
the mechanisms smoothly.
