    Cons: None.

    Pros: No distortion, long focus throw, high contrast, good resolving power.

    Summary: Went from using this lens on Canon bodies to Sony mirrorless bodies on both crop and full frame. There are no recent tests for this lens, but it has to be the best lens I have ever used in this focal length (85-100). We use it for product photography, macro with tubes, and gigapixel images using a multi-row panorama setup. The next closest lens for pure image quality is the Sigma 150 EX DG macro (non OS version), but the addition of tilt and shift makes this a truly extraordinary lens. We use the new 24mm TS-E and the 17mm TS-E too, and while their independent tilt/shift alignment is a wonderful feature, they are much more difficult to use because of their short focus throw and are also not as pleasing as the 90mm without significant presets on processing.

    Cons: All of the Canon TS-E lenses suffer one Achilles Heel: They are physically limited to tilt and shift in opposite planes. The lens can be modified by disassembling and rotating the front tilting portion of the lens 90 degrees relative to the rear shift assembly. But to switch back to the original setup requires another arduous unscrewing of the front of the lens.

    Pros: It gives you large format view camera effects in a hand held package.

    Summary: Absolutely my favorite lens of all time.
