Overview

Description by Canon:

The world's first 35mm-format telephoto lens with tilt and shift movements for perspective and depth-of-field control. Suitable for a variety of subjects, from product photography to architecture

  • 90mm tilt-and-shift lens
  • Telephoto lens with image control
  • ± 8° tilt and ±11mm shift
  • 58mm filter size
  • Non-rotating front element

A short telephoto lens featuring perspective and depth-of-field control.
Featuring six elements in five groups, the Gaussian-type optical system achieves outstanding imaging performance and natural looking background blur. Focusing is possible down to 0.5m. The lens is suited to a variety of subjects, from still-life photography to portraits and landscape work. Using reverse tilt to manipulate depth of field allows the photographer to achieve unique images, unattainable with normal lenses.

Wide range of movement
Offering ±8° of tilt, ±11mm shift and ±90° of rotation, the TS-E 90m f/2.8 offers control over depth of field and perspective. The tilt-and-shift mechanism also features locks to ensure that unwanted movements are avoided.

Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.
