We raved already about the qualities of the extraordinary Canon TS-E 17mm f/4 L and the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L II is basically on the same high level. When using the lens based on conventional settings it behaves pretty much like an excellent, albeit a little slow, 24mm prime lens. The center performance is outstanding here followed by very good borders/corners and that's straight from f/3.5 till f/11.
The Canon TS-E 24mm F3.5 L II is a lens which, given its price, has high expectations to meet. The good news is that, in almost all respects, it succeeds - the build quality is exemplary (certainly on a par with the EOS-1 series bodies it's likely to be paired with), and the new, more flexible system of movements works very well indeed.
Though it lacks autofocus and the focal length versatility of a zoom lens, the impressive image quality along with the tilt/shift/rotation features make the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L II Tilt-Shift Lens the ultimate landscape and architecture lens (for applications where 24mm works well at least). This includes interior architecture as well.
