With a Canon TS-E lens, you can control the angle of the plane of focus and the pictures perspective. The effects of large-format camera movements can be obtained with TS-E lenses for EOS cameras. Although manual focusing is required, automatic aperture control enables autoexposure and autoexposure bracketing. The tilt and shift axes intersect at a 90 angle. They can be made parallel at an authorized Canon Service Facility (modified at owners expense). Telephoto perspective, f/2.8 speed, and full tilt and shift movements in a compact, professional package. Impressively sharp, its ability to alter the plane of focus can provide a "look" that previously required a view camera to achieve. Pros have found it a great option for portraits, products and even fashion work. At its closest focus distance (1.6 ft/0.5m), it gives magnifications of about 1/3 life-size.
Very nice lens. he 90mm TSE has been a great addition to my collection of photographic equipment. Awesome lens, even if you don't take advantage of the tilt-shift capabilities. It's tack sharp!!!!
best lens out there

I use this lens for everything - nature, portraits, products, etc. - haven't found something this lens can't handle. It's sharpness is incredible. It takes some getting used to since it's only manual focus, but once you do, you'll have no complaints.
The individual pieces of glass that form the overall optical construction. Most lenses have between four and eleven elements to bend the light rays to ensure a perfectly formed image appears on the light sensitive surface, such as a film or CCD. The elements are arranged in groups and may be seen in specification sheets as, for example, 6 elements in 4 groups. That configuration may have two single elements and the other four grouped in pairs.
