Canon 50mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Characterized by its close-focusing and perspective control capabilities, the TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro from Canon is a normal-length tilt-shift lens well-suited for product, tabletop, architectural, and interior photography. Up to +/- 8.5° of tilt is possible, for focus control, and +/- 12mm of shift, to adjust perspective and composition, and a tilt-locking mechanism can be used while shooting for more stability. A minimum focus distance of 10.6" and a maximum magnification of 0.5x are also benefitted by the range of movements for more control over depth of field when photographing close-up subjects.

Complementing the operation of the lens, this L-series prime is also distinguished by its optical design that features a pair of Ultra-Low Dispersion elements to significantly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations as well as one aspherical element to minimize spherical aberrations and distortion. Individual elements also feature both Air Sphere and Subwavelength Coatings to suppress flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color neutrality.

Perspective control, tilt-shift lens affords +/- 12mm of shift and +/- 8.5° of tilt, and both types of movements can be applied independently, and parallel or perpendicular to one another. Additionally, the tilt and shift functions can be rotated +/- 90° in any direction for applying the movements in distinct directions.
Tilt-locking mechanism and a large tilt knob benefit operation and ensure the lens stays in place while shooting.
Two Ultra-Low Dispersion (UD) elements help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
One aspherical element minimizes spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness.
Both Air Sphere and Subwavelength Coatings have been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions.
A minimum focusing distance of 10.6" along with a maximum magnification of 0.5x benefits working with close-up subjects.

    Canon 50mm f/2.8 reviews

    TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro Tilt-Shift Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A worthy successor to the 45mm TS-E This lens is the long awaited update. �Based on early use, it is sharper than the 45mm in the center and corners. �It also maintains its optical performance better when shifted. �Shots taken with the lens if shifted position still exhibit sharpness across the entire image field. �The shift/tilt knobs are the Version 2 style with an additional improvement: the Tilt knob is larger which makes minute adjustments required to use Tilt effectively easier to control. Terrific lens for landscape / architectural photography. �Highly Recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tilt Shift lens Improved in every way over the predecessor 45 mm TSE. Not earth shattering enhancements but solid incremental enhancements. Some will wonder why not use Photoshop to do something similar. That approach is vastly inferior to using a proper tilt shift or perspective control lens. We took photos with this lens and examined the sharpness in Photoshop. The results are impressive.
