In this video, I review the Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8 by both looking at some test shots from my studio as well as looking at how I use it in my professional work.
This video discusses the Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8. This lens is a staple for product, still life, fine art, and portrait photographers alike. It can be a daunting purchase for many, but I don't know anyone who regrets buying it. Also, with it being a manual focus only lens, buying used copies of this lens is a very safe bet and good way to save money. The lens offers great build quality at an affordable price, although it does have a few design flaws, as I discuss in the video. I also go on to show how I have used it in my professional work and why I chose it over a standard 85mm or 100mm lens.
For me, this lens is a must-have as a food photographer. Before buying a 100mm lens, I would suggest going for this. Furthermore, if I could only have one lens, it would be a 45mm tilt-shift lens, and as a second offering, I would chose this. I have been working with this lens for years, and the optics are beautiful. It also gives you the option to create medium format-esque images on a far smaller budget. I can often achieve nearly 100-megapixel files with my setup, which is far cheaper than a 100-megapixel camera and lens combo. I have also utilized this lens for portrait photography. Although a bit of a one trick pony, when pulled out, it can really bring something interesting to the shoot.
