A unique telephoto offering close focus control along with perspective control capabilities the TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro from Canon is a tilt-shift lens well-suited for studio, 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 1.6' 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.

Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro Overview

A unique telephoto offering close focus control along with perspective control capabilities the TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro from Canon is a tilt-shift lens well-suited for studio, 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 1.6' 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 for high clarity. Individual elements also feature a Subwavelength 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.
Two Ultra-Low Dispersion (UD) elements help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
A Subwavelength 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 1.6' 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.

Really? wouldn't increasing the distance between the front element and sensor plane by adding a teleconverter radically diminish the image circle & increase the vignetting? although I grant it would give you more working distance.
Asked by: Charles
Because these Canon Tilt shift lenses have a wider image circle (6.27mm) then regular lenses, if one adds a teleconverter, it will limit the amount of tilt shift possible without severe vignetting. Using an f stop of f/8 or f/11 will greatly lessen the width of the vignetting

Actually, please, what is the image circle of this lens? Thanks
Asked by: Charles
The image circle for the Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro Tilt-Shift Lens, the TS-E 90mm tilt shift, and the TS-E 50mm tilt shift lenses is 67.2

question

Is this lens compatible with the 1.4x converter?
Asked by: Steve
The design of the swing mechanism is curved toward the camera, different from the 17, 24, and 50, but the same as the 90, which probably means more elements at the end, but still very likely to be compatible with tele converters. You can always add the extension tube if not, especially when used as a macro lens.We preordered it as soon as the late-night announcement and will confirm once it is in our hands.
