A large diameter, standard tilt-shift lens that boasts of wide tilting and shifting ranges of ±8.5° and ±12mm respectively and the ability to shoot macro images at up to 0.5x maximum magnification. Improved operability through features such as large tilt and shift knobs and a locking mechanism to prevent unintended movement provide powerful support for professional shooting purposes.
The lens construction utilizes large diameter glass molded aspherical lens elements, which reduces distortion aberration to the maximum possible, as well as UD lens elements, which realize high resolution and contrast. These altogether result in a high image quality that lives up to the reputation of the L-series lineup. The use of new special coatings such as Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) and Air Sphere Coating (ASC) reduce ghosting and flaring to a large degree, allowing you to capture clear images regardless of whether you are shooting indoors or outdoors. The 9-blade circular aperture enables beautiful bokeh perfect for all types of scenes and subjects, be it landscape, architectural, portrait or product photography.
