It takes an L-series optical formula that includes two UD lens elements and adds extensive tilt-and shift movements for a combination of precision and quality that can be ideal for macro photography, advertising, architecture and more. Delivering reliable and versatile use both in the studio and in the field, it has large, easily operated knobs and locking mechanisms, sophisticated construction, plus a convenient minimum focusing distance of 10 in./0.27m. As part of Canon's expanded line of TS-E lenses ranging from ultra-wide angle to mid-telephoto, the TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro offers a level of performance that can be ideal for working professionals and enthusiasts alike.
High-performance L-series Lens.
An excellent addition to Canon’s L-series collection of lenses, the TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro offers outstanding optics, reliable performance and refined design, featuring the quality professionals and advanced photographers demand. Engineered to complement Canon's high-resolution camera sensors, it's poised to deliver phenomenal image quality in any number of applications.
Large f/2.8 Maximum Aperture.
With a large f/2.8 maximum aperture, the TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro is extremely bright, excellent for composing images and for quick shutter speeds – even at low ISO speeds. This means striking portraits, minimized movement even in windy conditions and high flexibility for low-light situations.
Two UD Lens Elements Help Reduce Chromatic Aberration.
The TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro is designed to deliver the image quality necessary for detailed, high-resolution image capture. Two UD Glass lenses in a 12-element optical formula help to minimize chromatic aberration. The TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro's optics deliver gorgeous, high-resolution images with sharp edge-to-edge detail.
Optimized Lens Coating for Ghosting and Flare Reduction.
To help minimize the ghosting and flare that reflected light can cause on image capture, the TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro features Canon's ASC and SWC coatings. Air Sphere Coating (ASC) technology is designed to help significantly minimize reflections, particularly with light that enters the lens vertically. It adds a protective film that includes air spheres over the lens's conventional multi-layer coatings, enhancing its ability to capture virtually glare-free images. Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) helps reduce flaring and ghosting caused by light hitting the lens at large angles. Combined, the ASC and SWC coatings help the TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro capture wonderfully clear images with high contrast and minimal glare.
Large Tilt and Shift Knobs for Increased Operability.
For greater ease of use, the TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro features enlarged knobs for fast, intuitive control of tilt and shift. Feel free to make adjustments as you please without having to take your eyes off the composition.
