Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO review (highest quality and exciting creative possibilities, ePhotozine)

  • One Ultra-Low Dispersion Element
  • One Aspherical Element
  • Air Sphere Coating
  • Maximum Tilt: +/- 10°

  • Minimum Focusing Distance: 1.3′
  • Maximum Magnification: 0.5x

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.

Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO Review (a superb lens, Photography Blog)

Photography Blog posted their full review of the new Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO lens.

From their conclusion:

The Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8 L Macro Lens is a specialist lens, with a high asking price which probably excludes most ordinary enthusiasts from buying it. It does however make for an excellent option for rental, especially if you’re not sure if you want one – or if you have the patience to learn how to properly use it. Some of the more creative effects it produces can be a bit gimmicky, so again, renting it makes sense to see if you think you will get much use out of the effects.

Canon has produced a superb lens here, with excellent sharpness, high image quality and fantastic build quality. It is a more than worthy replacement for the older 90mm tilt shift lens, considering it now has “L” series designation and macro capability. Just like other tilt shift lenses, you pay a premium to own it, but for those who need one, you’re unlikely to be disappointed. Read the review…

85mm lenses showdown: Canon vs Sigma vs Tamron vs Zeiss

EF 85mm F/1.4L IS

Photographer and reviewer Dustin Abbott compared four 85mm lenses: the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS (), Sigma 85mm f/1.4 ART (), Tamron 85mm f/1.8 VC (), and Zeiss Otus 1.4 ().

The showdown comes in two parts. Part one gives a detailed breakdown of the resolving power of four of the top 85mm options, part two gives a detailed breakdown of the rendering from each lens, including chromatic aberrations, bokeh quality, facial rendering, actual focal length, contrast, and more.

I consider Dustin one of the serious reviewers out there.

 

The Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS is without any doubt the hottest Canon lens of 2017 and it gets one positive review after the other. We gave it a lot of coverage.

Photography Blog posted their full review of the new Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO lens.

From the conclusion:

Although it takes some time to get used to using a tilt-shift lens, once you do, the rewards are high. Being able to control precise areas of focus, whether for creative effect or for fine-tuning product shots, is a dream. Be prepared to put in the effort to learn exactly how to use a lens like this if you’ve never used a tilt-shift before, while those who are more experienced are likely to have more luck straight out of the box.

Sharpness is excellent […]

Overall, the Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro Lens is a very impressive performer. Having the macro ability, as well as the L series designation makes it a fantastic improvement on the previous TS-E 45mm f/2.8 tilt shift lens, but you do of course pay a premium for it. Read the review…

Peter McKinnon had an issue with his Canon EOS-1D X Mark II (price & specs): the internal housing of the microphone input cracked and broke. Reason enough to send the EOS-1D X Mark II to Canon support asap. But Peter first wanted to know what’s inside this professional, $6,000 DSLRs. Have a look and do not get into temptation to do it to your camera.
