Overview

Description by Canon:

The TS-E 24 mm f/3.5L II has been refined to deliver superb image quality right to the edges of the frame. Independent rotation of the tilt and shift mechanisms permits maximum creative freedom.

Features

  • 24mm tilt and shift lens
  • Low distortion and high resolution
  • ± 8.5° tilt and ±12mm shift
  • Independent tilt and shift movements
  • Aspherical and UD lens elements
  • Circular aperture

The high performance, wide-angle lens with exceptional tilt and shift range.

Expanding the possibilities for tilt and shift photography
The TS-E 24 mm f/3.5L II allows tilt and shift movements to be made independently of each other. This means perspective and depth of field can be controlled separately, vastly enhancing lens flexibility.

Widest range of movement
A wide-angle focal length of 24mm, combined with ±8.5° of tilt and ±12mm shift makes the TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II a versatile optic. Furthermore, ±90° of rotation on both the tilt and the shift mechanisms is available. The lens also features locks on the tilt and shift mechanisms to ensure unwanted movements are avoided.

High precision lens elements
A high-precision, large-diameter moulded glass aspherical lens element gives outstanding edge-to-edge resolution and low distortion. Chromatic aberration – common in wide-angle shooting – is combated by four UD (ultra low-dispersion) elements.

Subwavelength structure coating
Designed for use in digital photography, Canon’s patented lens element coating helps minimise the ghosting and flare caused by internal reflection and helps to deliver crisp, clear images.

Robust build quality
Canon L-series lenses are built to withstand regular use in the most testing environments. Weather and dust seals provide added protection. A lens hood and pouch are also included.

Lead-free optics
Environmentally friendly lead-free glass is used throughout the construction of the TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II.

Reviews

"The Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L II is the 2nd incarnation of Canon's tilt-shift wide-angle lens. We will elaborate on the tilt-shift (thus TS) function in more detail later on but for starters - the tilt aspect refers to the focus plane which is normally co-planar to the sensor plane. You can "tilt" the background/foreground focus by tilting the focus plane making it possible to achieve far more pronounced out-of-focus

"Vignetting is very well controlled - You might notice a little vignetting in full frame corners at f/3.5, but overall, nothing to worry about. Performance is very similar to the EF 24 L II in this regard (at the same apertures). 

CA (Chromatic Aberration) is extremely well controlled - less CA than the EF 24 L II and much less than the original TS-E 24mm L.
