Most people are probably buying the newer E version of this lens, but since there are still some showing up used, I'll add my review. The E version is said to be a little better but this is a hard act to follow, as the older model is bitingly sharp and well behaved.It's not that easy to use, heavy...
My main purpose for this lens is to manage depth of field with macro photography and other nature / portrait image capture. The lens is capable of creative freedom not possible with other medium format telephotos.A great lens for someone that has grown beyond standard prime lenses.
liked most - flat perspective liked least - need for tripod
Bought this in 2009 for tricky product macros. It is not the E version but then that is something that I don't need and I'm glad I have the can't go wrong version. The only downside in handling is that you can't shift and tilt in the same axis, unless you change that.
beautifully built, IQ amazing, very nice focus ring. very flexible
can't tilt and shift independently. only 1:2 Macro
This is a great lens and perfect for still life and product photography. It's nice and sharp when it needs to be, but has nice bokeh when using larger apertures. I use it often even when not using the tilt/shift function as I find it to be useful as a normal lens too.
I am a big fan of tilt-shift lenses, and even though I am primarily an architectural and interior photographer, I also use this lens for studio product photography. To be able to precisely control the plane of sharp focus, easily puts the entire product in focus.
They don't tilt or swing as much as a large format camera, of course, but offer a nice alternative for the digital shooter of architecture and products.
I am still in the test phase, but the lens itself is really well built and very smooth. Pictures are sharp and it's easy to find the focus ring.
I have been using his lens for architcture and product shots and it is excellent. It is one of the two best lenses I own the other is the 24mm PC-E by Nikon. So impressed by these lens' that I am in process of buying the 45mm PC-E as a standard lens.
This lens works perfectly for product photography. I'm very satified with this purchase.
