Compact, wideangle lens which enables tilt and shift movements. The floating optical system, with aspherical lens element, corrects distortion and other aberrations. High image quality and compactness are the result. Great for architecture, landscapes and other wideangle shots.

    Canon 2543A011AA reviews

    Wide Angle Tilt Shift TS-E 24mm f/3.5L Manual Focus Lens for EOS is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the images from my Tilt Shift 24mm I work as a portrait/lifestyle and wedding photographer. This lens has many applications when shooting people, details and scenes. I really love this lens for it's exoticness and the unique images it can create. This lens creates sharp crisp images where you want them to be and softens what you don't want to be so vivid. Once you get the hang of the lens it's pretty easy to use and it's sturdy and reliable. The one thing that can be challenging with this lens is nailing the exposure. If you are fully using the tilt and shift, it has trouble seeing exactly what you are exposing for. So it becomes necessary to check the back of the camera consistently.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Necessary Addition While this lens will not be mounted to my camera 100% of the time, I bought it to do architectural interiors. There's just no other way to correct converging lines. In addition, the ability to expand depth of focus was another concern. Would be difficult to focus accurately were it not for the Live View feature on my 5D2. Using the 10x magnifying setting, and moving the cursor to an area in the frame that is the center of focus, sharp focus is easily achieved. This lens has been criticized for being inherently soft. I don't find it to be so. I use a tripod, stop down to 11-16 and use the remote trigger to fire the camera. I will be purchasing the TS-E 90mm in the future for product photography.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Construction, Nice Wide Using this with a canon 5d mark ii, very solid construction, the tilt and shift stay where you put them (i never seem to need to tighten them off). the wide angle is great. it might be a touch soft. i started with the 45mm which i think seemed like a sharper lens and was 2.8 which was nicer, but i exchanged it for the 24mm just because i thought it would be more versatile, giving me more options working in tighter quarters. i miss a bit of the sharpness and the 2.8, but for the work i tend to do i think getting the 24mm was worth the trade off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the TS-E24L! Don't believe the reports you may read about this lens not being sharp. It's image quality is excellent. I'm using it with a 40D body to shoot historic site ruins under a grant project and the results are very satisfactory so far. Live view helps make manual focusing a snap. I'd recommend a hotshoe level when shooting structures. Once the camera is level and the exposure set, just shift the lens to get the correct composition for impressive images with correct perspective! While it isn't cheap, this optic is worth its price for certain specialty applications. Build quality is typical L, as in wonderful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool if you have time! I used this product to shoot aerial views of sporting events and also for interior architectural shots. The glass is clean and the knobs take some getting used to. The crop factor on my MarkIII does not make this a true 24mm. I would prefer a wider lens if possible. The lens works as advertised, you can straighten up the horizon and vertical lines for a better, truer picture. The only downside is that a better manual doesn't come in the box and there is no online support to show you how to work the lens. In due time you will learn the lens. Overall a pretty cool lens to own in your arsenal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L I shoot interiors for a living and my entire system is based around the use of this lens. It demands a methodical approach, as the lens can 'slip' into a shift or tilt that you may not be aware of and significantly alter the end result. Since I am shooting architecture, I'm most often using a tripod and before I take the final image I always check the barrel. (BTW, the little 'lens locks' don't really work) There is a definate loss of sharpness at the edge of the frame. There is detectable amount of barrel distortion, which can be 'fixed' in post production... pretty much always. I say these things becauseI think the tendency is to compare this to a 4x5 system/ lens, which it will never be. But what it is, is a profound leap forward to a workable digital architecture system that isn't tens of thousands of dollars, and depending on what camera body one is using, can deliver a high quality product. Expertise: Pro Items I Recommend: canon 5d or above

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb quality lens This really is a superb quality lens, though it requires both understanding and effort to get the best out of it. The focus ring (no autofocus - remember) is silky smooth, and the tilt and shift adjustments are good too. OK - the tilt/shift locks are small and fiddly, but by no means a deal breaker; this is after all a lens to be used with silk gloves, not winter ones. Frankly the case is not worth the trouble (it doesn't fit the lens well and offers little protection) and the hood cannot be reversed on the lens, but otherwise it is a great investment if you are involved in the sort of photography that might justify it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful specialty lens. So far I've had a blast with this lens. It's great for landscape, architecture, studio and I imagine a handful of other things I have not tried yet. I chose this one over the other focal lengths because I want to be able to use to for tall buildings and other wise shots.I have heard that it is the softest of the TSE lenses but it is plenty sharp enough for me, and it is the only L TSE lens that Canon offers....
