Choosing a Canon Tilt/Shift Lens

A tilt/shift lens fills a specific need, and thus any discussion is general and might not apply to a specific photographic goal or shooting style. This page nonetheless offers some perspective, based on field use and your author’s own shooting experiences.

Given the specialty nature of tilt/shift lenses and the on-the-fly tilt/shift orientation change possible with the 17/4L and 24/3.5L II, one might consider the camera an accessory and thus utilize the Canon 17/4L and 24/3.5L II in particular as problem-solving lenses for professional work. Put plainly, the Canon platform is much more attractive than Nikon in the ultra wide and wide angle tilt/shift range (the Nikon 24/3.5 PC-E is an uninspired design and Nikon offers no ultrawide tilt/shift design as of mid 2014).
