the lens belongs to our member Himself and it's finally on its way to the owner .Wink

EOS 5DMkII, PP - ADOBE LIGHTROOM

Entire frame - wide open at f2.8


and crop from the middle - I must say I am stunned ! Shocked
(This is the fourth copy which I have tried but I can't believe that)

Have to confess that I'm waiting for it more to use the tilt and shift features than using it as a regular lens.

Is the weather too cold in Montreal that you haven't been able to use the lens yet? :0

I'm thinking about getting one of these.

Can ppl say if they think this FD TS 35 f2.8 is better than the closest modern equivalent like the TS-E 45mm?

thanks,

David

Well, I bought one of these after spotting an eBay advert. Ordered today so don't expect to see it for 2-3 weeks, given the Christmas season.
It's always something of a gamble with online purchases, so fingers crossed.
Ordered an EdMika adapter too, since postage to/from Australia ain't cheap and I would have paid as much sending the lens away.

Those shots taken by the OP are superb examples of both the lens and his photography.

Edit 26 Jan 12:

Lens and adapter arrived mid-January.
Image taken today (Australia Day).
