reviewswhat are people saying

"The shift feature is unbelievably powerful in getting a pleasing composition, and in addressing perspective issues in that composition. This is great for photos, and for video on the 5DMII this is unbeatable."

"Many people told me that it's not as useful to obtain the tilt shift unless I'm a landscape photographer. Boy were they wrong!! I loved using my 50mm but now I love using the TS-E 45mm."

"It is slow to use, not a bad thing, it is reasonably heavy and bulky, but not really any different in weight and bulk to other quality lenses."
