The TS-E24mm f/3.5L II lens is a highly refined update to the architectural photographer’s ever-present TS-E24mm f/3.5L USM lens. It adds a greater range of lens movement, a SubWavelength Coating and independent rotation of the tilt and shit mechanisms to provide a versatile and creative lens for photographers looking to expand their photographic boundaries.
Photographers specialising in architectural work have very specific requirements – high image quality, lens moments and a lack of distortion. For years, the TS-E24mm f/3.5L USM lens has been the lens of choice for this sort of work. However, it has now been replaced with an even better version that offers higher image quality and more versatility with the new lens movements available. With a 74degree horizontal field-of-view and the ability to shift the lens +/-12mm and tilt +/-8.5° it offers the chance to capture an entire building and ensure the depth of field and perspective are exactly as required. This has been created by an even larger than previous image circle allowing for greater lens movements.
With the move to higher and higher pixel counts in digital sensors, photographers who previously would have shot on large format camera for the resolution and camera movements are now seeing the benefits of smaller, lighter, more versatile and more portable 35mm cameras that offer enough image data to fulfil their needs. The TS-E24mm f/3.5L II lens makes that transition even easier as you don’t need to give up the camera movements simply because it’s a 35mm camera.
New in the TS-E24mm f/3.5L II lens is the ability to rotate the tilt and shift mechanisms relative to each other. With previous tilt and shift lenses, the factory default was to have the tilt aligned at 90degrees to the shift. While it is possible to align them so they are in the same plane, it required a trip to the service centre to have it done by one of the technicians. Now you can choose on a shot-by-shot basis how you want either the tilt or shift aligned relative to the subject and the other lens movement for the most creative control.
