After renting and using the Canon 24mm TSE II over this previous weekend, I have come to the conclusion that I don't need or want it. Not that there is anything wrong with it, It IS a superb lens. Tack sharp and contrasty from edge to edge. My problem is that I just didn't enjoy using this lens.
While the trip up to Watson lake with my wife and daughter was specifically about trying out this lens, the lens' tilt and shift controls took center stage and because of that, I slipped away from the art and back into an engineering mindset.
Not all is lost however. Knowing what doesn't work for you is just as important as knowing what does!
