Canon TS-E 24mm 1:3.5 L II

Canon was the first company to offer 35mm camera users a combined tilt and shift lens, With 36 years experience in this field, Canon has now added a new unique functionality to the TS-E 17mm f/4L and TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II, allowing users to rotate the direction of the tilt and shift independently of each other.

This affords greater control over the focal plane, replicating the movements of a large format view camera. Canon?s revolutionary tilt and shift revolving mechanism is particularly useful when shooting product shots from a perspective where specific framing and focal plane is required.

The new lenses, influenced by feedback from professional photographers, have been created to produce the best image quality with high resolution, high contrast and low distortion.

The use of high-precision asphercial front elements keeps distortion, common in wide angle lenses, to an absolute minimum, even at the edges of the frame. The TS-E 17mm f/4L and TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II also feature multiple UD elements to reduce chromatic aberration and optimised focus mechanisms.

Canon has also introduced a new range (52mm to 72mm) of versatile, multi-functional PL-C B polarizing filters to help reduce reflections from glass or water or darken blue skies. The PL-C B?s, which are now available in 52mm, 58mm, 67mm, 72mm, 77mm and 82mm filter thread sizes, also allows the lens cap to be attached to the lens to prevent damage to the filter if left attached when not in use.


Key features of the TS-E 17mm f/4L and TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II include
Tilt and shift lenses compatible with all Canon EOS cameras
Ultra Wide 17mm / wide 24mm focal length, ideal for architecture and landscapes.High precision lens elements for low distortion and high resolution to the edge of the image +/- 6.5? Tilt and +/-12mm Shift (TS-E 17mm f/4L) +/- 8.5? Tilt and ?12mm Shift (TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II) Tilt and shift mechanism rotates +/-90? allowing shift in any direction.Tilt mechanism rotates +/-90? allowing tilt in any direction relative to the shift. Aspherical and UD lens elements minimise chromatic aberration Sub-wavelength structure and super-spectra coatings minimise ghosting and flare Circular aperture for creative, blurred highlights.TS-E 17mm f/4L has a floating internal focus mechanism delivers high image quality throughout focus range.

Re: Canon TS-E 24mm 1:3.5 L II

The revised Canon TS-E 24mm 1:3.5L II wide angle tilt and shift lens is specifically designed for architectural photography. The Canon TS-E 17mm 1:4L features low distortion and excellent edge-to-edge sharpness. It features independent rotation of the Tilt and Shift mechanisms ensures versatility. With a wide angle 24mm focal length and ?8.5? of tilt available, plus ?12mm shift and ?90? of rotation on both the tilt and the shift mechanisms, the TS-E 24 mm f/3.5L II offers exceptional flexibility. The TS-E 24 mm f/3.5L II also feature locks on the tilt and shift mechanisms to ensure that unwanted movements are avoided. To achieve outstanding edge-to-edge resolution and low distortion, a high precision large diameter moulded glass aspherical lens is used. To minimise chromatic aberration common in wide-angle shooting three UD elements are used. These features make the lens especially suited to landscape and architectural photography.


Features of the Canon TS-E 24mm 1:3.5L II Lens
  • Tilt and Shift lens for use with all EOS cameras
  • Wide 24mm focal length, ideal for landscapes and architecture
  • High precision moulded glass lens element for low distortion and high resolution to the edge of the image.
  • Large range of movement: ?8.5? Tilt and ?12mm Shift
  • Shift mechanism rotates +/-90? allowing shift in any direction
  • Tilt mechanism rotates +/-90? allowing tilt in any direction relative to the shift
  • Aspherical and UD lens elements minimise chromatic aberration
  • Sub wavelength structure and super spectra coatings minimise ghosting and flare
  • Circular aperture for creative, blurred highlights
