The 2009 Canon TS-E 24/3.5L II offers a distinct leap forward over the original version including the following:
- Superior contrast and detail, especially when shifted;
- Lower distortion;
- Slight better field illumination;
- Superior flare control.
- Superior ergonomics (focusing ring, dials, etc);
- Outstanding control of color fringing, far better than the obvious deficiencies of the original model.
- Greater versatility via tilt that can be positioned relative to shift in any desired way;
- Considerably easier focusing in Live View mode, with a crisp and contrasty image visibly superior to the original version (accurate focus is critical!);
- An additional 1mm of shift capability;
- Outstanding performance in infrared.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.
Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.
- Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
- Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
- Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
- Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
- Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
- Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
- Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
