The 24/3.5L II is longer and wider than the original 24/3.5L, taking 82mm filters as well. Aside from clearly superior optical performance, the new version allows changing the tilt/shift orientation relative to each other.
The 24/3.5L II offers 12mm of shift, and quality is definitely higher farther out than with the original version. The original version offers 11mm of shift, and it is marked in red beyond 8mm, presumably indicating deteriorating image quality around that range, a finding substantiated in actual use.
The focusing ring of the 24/3.5L II is much more generous, but with less “throw” (amount of rotation). Knobs are larger and easier to use too.

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.
