Canon TS-E 50mm, 90mm f/2.8L Macro, 135mm f/4L Macro, 85mm f/1.4L IS USM

Canon has introduced a range of new lenses, including 3 tilt-shift lenses, and a new 85mm f/1.4 portrait lens – a lens surprisingly missing from Canon’s line up, until now. We went hands-on with these four new lenses.

  • TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro
  • TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro
  • TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro
  • EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM

The Canon 85mm f/1.4L lens features image stabilisation, and joins the 85mm f/1.2L II and 85mm f/1.8 lenses in the range. There are two switches on the side, one to switch IS on and off, and the other to switch between Auto Focus (AF) and Manual Focus (MF).

There are three new tilt-shift lenses, all of them macro lenses, and manual focus as well, the new 50mm TS-E replaces the 45mm TS-E lens, the 90mm TS-E replaces the 90mm TS-E, and the 135mm TS-E is completely new, giving Canon a range from 17mm TS-E, 24mm TS-E, 50mm TS-E, 90mm TS-E and 135mm TS-E – the widest range of tilt-shift lenses available for any camera system.

 

Canon Macro Twin Lite Flash MT 26EX RT (1)
 

Also introduced is a new Macro flash lite – with twin flash and LED lights as well. The descriptively named Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-26EX-RT. This features two ring mounted flash heads, that can be individually adjusted so that you can point them directly at your subject, or bounced off something nearby. The bottom of the ring is flat, to enable the use of the camera on flat surfaces.
