Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro Lens in Detail

This longer focal length tilt-and-shift lens offers unique ways to control perspective and plane of focus thanks to carefully calibrated movements, outstanding optical engineering and precision moulded glass lenses for low distortion, exceptional edge-to-edge definition and macro down to 1:2 ratio.

Direct focus to a small part of the subject or maximise depth-of-field; this is a useful and very convenient way to creatively direct the viewer's attention to where you want it most and is a unique characteristic of a tilt-and-shift lens.

Overcome the convergence of verticals without having to reposition the camera thanks to the special characteristics of the tilt-shift lens with its intricate adjustable lens movements. A conventional lens with no movements will record the verticals of a tall subject, such as a building or a group of trees, with a certain degree of distortion depending on how close you are. The lens' shift feature allows you to overcome this.

Maximise realistic detail even in close-up photography, with a lens that can focus up to half life-size.

Ensure your subject is perfectly in proportion thanks to precise incremental movements built into the lens allowing careful fine-tuning of both plane of focus and subject perspective.

Record the finest detail using the very latest L-series lens technologies. The TS-E range of lenses are constructed to match the performance of Canon high-resolution sensors.

Large diameter, high precision, moulded glass aspherical lenses are used to reduce distortion as much as possible with an Sub wavelength coating to minimise ghosting and flare.

Achieve exceptional focus and shoot with realism and clarity thanks to the versatility of a lens boasting a 0.5x maximum magnification.

The TS-E 135MM F/4L MACRO is an ideal studio lens with a greater reach to give you room for lighting set ups and boasts an exceptional tilt and shift range designed to give you ultimate shooting flexibility

Canon 135mm f/4L Macro Tilt Shift Lens features:

  • Control focus precisely for clever creative effects
  • Correct perspective and verticals quickly and accurately in-camera
  • Adjust focus detail in macro shots with 1:2 ratio
  • Optical excellence with advanced lens design and construction
  • Achieve better portrait and product images with ultimate sharpness

Looking to sell your Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L Manual Focus Tilt Shift Macro Lens?

Our Verdict

Launching as part of an exciting team of three new Macro capable Tilt-Shift lenses, the 135mm is designed with the studio in mind, and owing to a longer minimum focus distance (albeit still short for this focal length) than its siblings, will be right at home with product shoots requiring complex lighting setups.

It is pushing the boundaries of a focal length that is suitable for portraiture, however it isn't out of the question at 135mm to be able to get some excellent head shots with a vast opportunity for creativity with this exciting lens.

The macro ratio of 1:2 means that you can get closer to your subjects, hence the macro classification of this lens - plus why Canon are suggesting that this is an ideal lens for taking product photos.

Non macro tilt shift lenses might lose quality as you get closer owing to smaller maximum magnification possibilities, and a longer minimum focus distance.

Definitely a lens for the more experienced photographer, Tilt Shift lenses are useful for minimising distortion in your imagery thanks to granular control by shifting the lens. 

When shooting your subject, especially useful in the case of products, you can limit focus or increase depth of field to make sure that your products pop out exactly where you want them to.
