New Tilt-Shift Lenses

The other three new lenses are all tilt-shift models. The TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro and TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro replace the TS-E 45mm f/2.8 and TS-E 90mm f/2.8 respectively, while the TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro extends the focal length range Canon’s tilt-shift line-up.

The TS-E 50mm, TS-E 90mm and TS-E 135mm’s shift function enables the lens to be shifted up, down, left or right to minimize perspective distortion.

The TS-E 50mm is designed for both landscape and architectural photographers, while the TS-E 90mm and TS-E 135mm are more suited to portrait and macro work. All three optics can produce half-life-size images with a maximum magnification of 0.5x.
