ePhotozine posted their full review of the new Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO. The TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO is a highly specialised lens that’s not for everyone (and not for everyone’s budget, it’s $2,199).
From ePhotozine’s conclusion:
Some lenses gel straight away, others grow on us and this one grows on us very quickly as the new possibilities of mixing a 90mm lens with macro and tilt and shift start to fire the imagination.
This is a specialised optic that would be delightful to own, but at the price level will probably be for professional photographers with particular applications clear in their minds. It will be a workhorse and it will earn money.
In the general marketplace it is expensive, but if it’s affordable then it will not disappoint. Canon are to be congratulated for producing such a wide range of specialist tilt/shift lenses that break new ground and push back the boundaries of creativity. Read the review…
This is another masterpiece by Canon, though this lens will be bought mostly by professionals who need this very kind of specialised lens. ePhotozine gave the Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO a score of 4.5/5.
