Wow: First Looks at Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Tilt-Shift Macro Lens Image Quality

The-Digital-Picture_com
Prepare to be impressed: Image quality test results have been added to the Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Tilt-Shift Macro Lens page.
 
Wipe the drool. This is not an inexpensive lens, but it is delivering extremely high image quality.
 
Note that results with extenders are included, showing that this lens can be used with those. The with-extender results show that great image quality remains available and extenders add significantly to the versatility of this lens.
 
Also note that shifted results are included. To accommodate the tilt and shift movements, the lens must produce an image circle larger than the designed-for sensor format requires. As the lens is shifted (and/or tilted), the periphery of this larger image circle comes into use. Thus, the shifted results have meaning and in this case, the shifted-"12mm" results show a very slight degradation in the corner.
 
To see the level of image quality being produced here, check out a comparison against one of the sharpest lenses available: Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L vs EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II Lens. Create your own comparisons.
 
The Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Tilt-Shift Macro Lens is in stock at Amazon (only 2 in stock through Canon-authorized Beach Camera) and coming soon to B&H | | Adorama | WEX.
