Canon TS-E shift & tilt series lenses are speciality lenses ideal for landscape and architectural photography and are compatible with all Canon EOS system single lens reflex cameras. The Canon TS-E range has significantly improved operability with low distortion when photographing buildings, consistent image quality throughout the image and reduced chromatic aberration when shooting at fixed focal lengths.

The manual iris ring, allows full compatibility with cameras made by other manufacturers, so that the iris can be operated manually.

3 versions of these lenses are available from VMI – 17mm/F4, 24mm/F3.5 & 45mm/F4.

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.

The image in the parade was taken with a 45mm tile and shift lens and both are in focus.

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.
