Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro Overview

A short telephoto prime distinguished by its close focusing and perspective control capabilities, the TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro from Canon is a tilt-shift lens well-suited for product and tabletop photography. Up to +/- 10° 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 1.3' 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, which features one Ultra-Low Dispersion element to significantly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations as well as one aspherical element to minimize spherical aberrations and distortion. Individual elements also feature an Air Sphere Coating to suppress flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color neutrality.

Perspective control, tilt-shift lens affords +/- 12mm of shift and +/- 10° 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.
One ultra-low dispersion element helps to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
One aspherical element minimizes spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness.
An Air Sphere Coating has 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 1.3' along with a maximum magnification of 0.5x benefits working with close-up subjects.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field techniques.

Asked by: Sergey
If your camera has the full frame sensor, given the description of the photographs you intend to take, I would recommend the 90mm. For crop sensor, the 50mm.

I have a question about the manual focus of this lens. Does the manual focus ring have real, physical, hard stops at the close end and the far end of the focus throw? Or, when I turn the focus dial all the way to infinity, will the Dial keep moving if I push past infinity, despite focus of course stopping at infinity? This is a very important detail that I must now to see if it will work with my edelkrone motorized focus which requires physical hard stops. Thank you!
Asked by: Mark
I just double checked mine. This lens has a hard-stop at infinity where the focus ring physically can't move any further. That hard stop may not be exactly at optical infinity focus but somewhere slightly past it, and that can change slightly with ambient air temperature.

What effect on performance would using this on an R5 w/ EF adaptor have, given that it will be further from the sensor?
Asked by: Mark
The Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro Tilt-Shift Lens will work perfectly on the Canon R5 with the adapter. There won't be any effect in the performance.
