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.

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

Worth every single penny

A tilt shift lens in this range opens up so many possibilities for creativity. Sure it is manual focus, but accuracy and speed become second nature very quickly. The ability to get both eyes in focus at f 2.8 is amazing and the creamy bokeh is simply jaw dropping. For automotive, product, landscape, or architecture, there are huge photography advantages over other lenses. 16000 x 10000 pixel panoramas make for amazing prints when shifting. This lens is built like a tank and has a smooth quality focus action. The construction and sharpness cannot be understated. If you want the highest line resolution possible in any lens, or maximum corner to corner sharpness look no further. A great lens that brings another dimension into your professional or casual photography.

Absolute control. Absolute clarity.

I debated for a long time before deciding to purchase this lens. In the end, the incredible control of the focal plane became the compelling factor. I also own the 24mm TS-E and have been very pleased with that lens. That said, I am thinking that this has the strong potential to become the favorite lens in my bag. Its not for beginners, and it requires some effort, but for product shots, close ups, still lives and intimate landscape shots it is the real deal. I know it would also be a great portrait lens. Thats just not my genre. Dean O.

Great with Full Sensor Cameras for Video

By Peter

This is a great lens when shooting close ups at an angle using full sensor DSLRs and mirrorless cameras where the focus range is paper thin. The lens allows you keep everything in focus, top to bottom, regardless of the angle you're shooting from. Don't need it a lot, but when I need it, I need it! Last time I used this was when shooting video looking down on a container that contained bedbugs and a small section of mattress material. It's too hard to look straight down at 90 degrees sometimes, so this lens come in very handle for macro type stuff and any close ups at an angle. Also good for routine head shots when shooting from below or above the the eyeline. Keeps your entire subject in focus.

Great product. Good for close up photography. Details. Crystal clear.

Worthwhile improvements over the older version

By Thomas

I used the older version of the 90mm t-s for years. The wear of daily use made it just about unusable, despite Canon's repair of the gearing. I haven't yet examined the files to check for optical improvement, but am extremely pleased by the greater resolution of the controls. It's a joy to use, as is the new 50mm t-s compared with the older 45mm version. The learning curve for tilt-shift just got a whole lot shorter.

Very sharp lens

For a tilt-shift lenses, it's a pretty sharp lens. Good built-quality and f2.8 is bright enough for product photography.

Very sharp optics

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.
