The Canon TS-E 50mm F/2.8L Macro is a tilt-shift lens and it is well-suited for the product, tabletop, architectural, landscape, interior, and portrait photography. The tilt and shift functions can be rotated +/- 90° in any direction for applying the movements in distinct directions. Apart from this, the lens has a minimum focus distance of 0.27m and a 1:2 reproduction ratio. For advanced photography with precise control, the tilt-shift lens provides enhanced creative control through the tilt function and depth-of-field through the shift function in their images.
The lens has 12 elements in 9 groups and the lens includes both aspherical and two UD lens elements. This lens is distinguished by its optical design as it features a pair of Ultra-Low Dispersion elements that significantly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations while the aspherical elements minimize spherical aberrations and distortion. The lens also features both Air Sphere and Subwavelength Coatings to suppress flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color neutrality. The aperture settings are controlled by the camera.
For your information, the 50mm lenses usually display some barrel distortion, and this lens is no exception. According to Canon, the TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro offers a level of performance that can be ideal for working professionals.
