As an industrial photographer, this system really pays off in the combined tilt and shift effect in creating painless panoramas in challenging conditions. Imagine taking a tack-sharp image of a two-foot long microcircuit board so tight you can't even look through the viewfinder.
Wow! I am so so impressed with this. Truth be told I bought this just for the wicked awesome full circle flare you can achieve with the 24mm tilt shift. I was nervous about buying this because in the past I've bought cheaper lenses (cough, cough Sigma....) and they were SO NOT SHARP.
I have used the Canon TS lenses for years.Recently my 24mm lens developed a problem with the filter thread and was difficult to thread filters I use particularly neutral gray for longer exposures. I had read multiple reviews of the Rokinon 24mmTS lens ,some of then rather negative.
This is a fantastic lens for the price! To be short and concise, this lens is very sharp everywhere except wide open (f3.5) where it is a little soft. If you just take it down 1/3 of a stop though, the results are much better!
At a third of the price of its Canon counterpart, I was expecting some sacrifices. The knobs are small and do not feel substantial. I suspect theyll be the first things to break in this lens.Theres some heavy vignetting at the full shift when shooting wide open.
Tilt-shift is not for the weak of heart, it took time to learn how to focus/refocus, then move the blur where you want it. Once you get it though, it is really cool! I shoot with a Nikon D7100 and this lens and it is truly wonderful. I"m still learning, but man, this lens does NOT disappoint!
This lens does the job when you need a tilt-shift lens, but the optics aren't very sharp. I am always disappointed with the sharpness of my images when I shoot with this lens and wish I had spent the extra money and purchased the Nikon version. Next time.
This is a great lens. Some reviews said the smaller knobs were too small but they didn't seem overly small or hard to use. There is one turning of the lens where the two knobs line up and that is hard to use but it doesn't happen all the time and you can work around it.
I prefer to compose and shoot as near to the final image as possible, in camera, rather than relying on the variables of software fixes. Fixes that can produce different from expected results.
This lens is both useful and great for creativity. To line up the shift rail with the object to be photographed (eg. tall buildings), you press a tiny latch (which may be a little too small and too sticky) and simultaneously twist the lens.
