ISO 12233 Sample Crops from the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II Tilt-Shift Lens are online.

Included are results with the Canon EF 1.4x and Canon EF 2.0x Extenders along with 6mm and 12mm shifted results.

This lens looks very impressive so far.

Compared to the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L Tilt-Shift Lens, the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II Tilt-Shift Lens has less distortion (note: top ISO 12233 crop details are therefore smaller), much less CA and sharper corners. Wide open performance is especially improved. Here is a comparison between the two Canon TS-E 24mmm Tilt-Shift Lenses.

The TS-E 24 L II is extremely well built - manual focus is a joy to use on this lens. Very Zeiss-like.

Firmware Version 1.1.0 incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

1. Includes a function to enable the manual exposure setting when shooting movies.

2. Disables the function of the depth-of-field preview button when images are played back or when the menu screen is displayed on the LCD panel.

3. Fixes a phenomenon where the peripheral illumination of images cannot be properly corrected, even if the images were captured with the lens peripheral illumination correction function set to Enable. *Digital Photo Professional software version 3.6.1 or later (for Windows and Macintosh) can be used to automatically correct the peripheral illumination of RAW and JPEG images that were captured in the Peripheral illumination correction setting with cameras that have Firmware Version 1.0.7 or earlier.

4. Fixes the algorithms of the Auto Lighting Optimizer function when Custom Function C.Fn II-3 Highlight tone priority is enabled.

5. Fixes incorrect indications on the Arabic, Romanian, Spanish, and Ukrainian menu screens.

6. Changes the battery information displayed on the camera when using the optional Battery Grip BG-E6.
