Canon 24mm f/3.5 overview

  • 1Description

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.

The tilt-shift 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. 

TS-E lens is compatible with all Canon EOS cameras.
Wide image circle of 67.2mm is 50% greater than 35mm/full frame film area.
High precision glass (16 elements/11 groups) for low distortion and high resolution to the edge of the image
The tilt and shift mechanism rotates +/-90°, allowing shift in any direction and the tilt mechanism independently rotates +/-90°, allowing tilt in any direction relative to the shift.
One Aspherical and three UD lens elements minimize chromatic aberration.
Sub-wavelength structure and super-spectra coatings minimize ghosting and flare.
Circular aperture for creative, blurred highlights

Canon 24mm f/3.5 reviews

TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II Tilt-Shift Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 167.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than Hoped For OK, this lens is expensive. But the optics are incredible, and there is simply no substitute for tilt/shift capability. f/3.5 has been fast enough to use indoors without flash. You really do have to use a tripod, though, especially when using the tilt functionality. I'm glad I read the user manual, as the tip of zooming in with the camera's live view function to help manual focusing was really helpful. The truly round aperture gives a very nice bokeh. Like all L glass, mechanically the lens is a rock solid beast. I've also used the tilt functionality at macro distances to great effect. The creative potential with this lens is enormous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shooting Architecture w/this is a joy! Careful use of camera & lens controls is a must to get the best out of this lens. Working with 24mm T/S II lens eliminates the need to set camera height just to keep vertical lines strait.This lens is a must have if you shoot architecture. IQ is a big upgrade from the 24mm T/S I. Corners are finally sharp again and minimal distortion! Great flair control and no Chromatic aberration! You can get accurate AF confirm light if you adjust the Micro Adjust setting on the 5D mk2. Good lighting and focusing technique will produce outstanding professional results with this lens. Please Canon make a 35mm version!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from get to the higher planes I was first a bit skeptical, but after being out in the field and getting used to the endless possibilities of tilting and shifting the focus plane I can't do without it. Landscape and architecture get a new meaning, but also portraits/wedding can get that nice addition if you use the TS intelligently. Perfectly sharp (sharper than the corresponding prime, IMHO) the superiority is easily visible on my 5D mkii. Not having an auto focus (no, I am not complaining), I would suggest also to add a manual diaphragm control for quicker control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon's best 24mm lens, + movements Even before going into the tilt shift aspect, this lens just as a fixed 24mm is a joy to use. Manual focus is buttery smooth, and focusing through live view on a 5d II is an experience unto itself. The movements are extremely versatile, both using downward tilt for added DoF for landscapes (while still being able to keep the aperture below a number that starts being affected by diffraction) and shift for both miniatures and for fixing keystoning. The movements come at a small price: no weather sealing. I think the extra versatility makes up for it. The build quality is outstanding. Usual Canon L-ness.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great optics, poor mechanics The optics on this lens are superb. Sharp and surprisingly little distortion (although both suffer a little at the corners when tilted). Much sharper than any other 24mm I have used and substantially better than the 16-35mm L and 24-105mm L lenses at 24mm. However, beware that the screws on the tilt-shift knobs are prone to working loose and falling off. This is a serious annoyance, and Canon will not replace these screws and knobs for free. Their replacements cost a fortune, and they are unwilling to let you use the screw driver yourself (voids the warranty) ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier to use than you may think I debated buying this lens for a long time, putting off the purchase three different times. What was holding me back, besides the expense, was worry that the learning curve would be steep and I wouldn't get the most out of this remarkable lens. Turns out it's not nearly as difficult to use as some photographers make out. True it takes practice to learn which knobs to turn for which purpose, but I started getting the hang of it fairly quickly. The tilt/shift is definitely for photographers who take their time over their shots, who enjoy the process as much as the result. I would not recommend this manual focus lens unless your camera has live view.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Horrible locking knobs! I've had this lens for several years now, and use it quite frequently for landscape work. The ability to stop down and get great depth of filed with the tilt function is invaluable. This is a very sharp lens. Perspective control is awesome although you will still get some distortion at 24 mm, there is just no way around it. My only gripe is that the locking knobs for the tilt and shift are cheap plastic and are horrible--they have jammed on me at least a dozen times. I have had to use a wrench to loosen them up, and finally I got frustrated and took a pair of pliers to the knob--stripping it and now requiring repair by Canon. Very annoying--they should rethink that design feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Lens This is one amazing lens. Sharp from edge to edge even when shooting wide open. No noticeable light fall off at any aperture. When focused properly the image quality is indescribably sharp. I had never used a t-s lens before, so if you're new to this type of lens, it will take a bit of practice, but it will be so worth it. I use this on a 5d-II and 1ds-III. I have been able to focus quite accurately on near subjects while doing hand held, but anything at a longer distance will require the use of a tripod and live view with a wide angle lens such as this one. I couldn't be happier with this lens. Highly recommended
