- Perfect lens comparable to the Zeiss 135Pros: Durable; Nice Bokeh; Easily Interchangeable; Lightweight; Consistent Output; Strong Construction
Landscape and portraiture are my main uses. having plenty of manual focus lenses manually focusing was not a problem it simply takes a little longer. The focus confirm is very helpful.
I own both this lens and the zeiss 135 APO sonnar and I must say both lenses are very nice and this 90mm for being a very old model is pretty on par, even if it not apochromatic. Its resolution is superb. My main reason for getting this lens instead of waiting for the newer 135mm Tilt shift that canon is rumored to produce Is because of its rendering characteristics with its gaussian optics which made it very worthwhile.Read full review
- Well built but tilt is too limited.Pros: Rugged; Close focusing
Cons: Limited Tilt
The tilt was only half what I expected.Read full review
The lens will not attach to Canon's Macro Twin Lite.
The lens will focus quite close, acting as a macro lens.
The lens is well made, but the shift and tilt are at right angles and should have been made adjustable so they can be combined.
I would recomend this but point out the shortcomings.
- Nice tilt lens that doubles as a macroPros: Nice Bokeh; Consistent Output; Lightweight; Durable
I use this for product photography, either to isolate a detail (tilting the focus plane away from the surface of the object) or to maintain focus along the entire product when shooting at an angle (tilting the focal plane to run along the object's surface). I also use it when I need to magnify something; it's not officially a macro lens but it focuses down to half a meter, letting me get pretty close. The 90mm may not be an L lens (nor does it have an L price, grin), but I have no complaints with its sharpness and overall image quality.Read full review
