As I said, this was the first picture taken using me new Canon 24mm tilt Shift lens. I was worried about some of the reviews about this lens before I bought it, but there was the alternative reassurance from pros who have been using this lens for years.

And as it happens the quality of the image capture was absolutely excellent. 

Good glass is good glass. Don’t believe the hype about must having the latest and greatest. Some old lenses are just fantastic, and always will be. 

And as for the tilt and shift – you have to try it to really understand it and appreciate it. This picture was taken with the converging correction done on the lens at the time of image capture. 

Which is why I bought this lens. I am using this lens as well as my go to Canon 17-40mm lens until I get completely used to it, but the initial feelings about this new les are good, The overriding feeling is – why did I not get this lens years ago? 

This picture was taken on my Canon 6D with my Canon 24mm tilt shift lens. Processed using Lightroom Mobile on my iPhone 7 Plus.

I know. Processed on my phone, Ridiculous really!
