fuji GFX and the new Canon 90tse
« on: June 07, 2018, 03:26:47 PM »

when I decided to turn pro some 14 years ago I trested myself to a Canon 1Ds, the zoom trilogy and I wanted a 90 tse lens. the nice salesperson at Jessops London told me to hold off on this one for a couple of weeks, because a successor is just around the corner. I did, but stumbled upon a great desl a few days later for a used one, which I bought.

for the next ten years about 80% of my income was generated wirh this lens, although I was never really happy with it. I am shooting mostly food and three things always bugged me:

1. close focus range is meager, with extension rings ther was always a gap in the range
2. close focus quality is mediocre
3. tilt and shift are fixed to 90° or on the same axis

I bought every other TS lens out there, Hartblei, Zörk, Mirex, whatever, adapted a Linhof 679 and in the ladt three years used a cambo Actus. But especially out of my studio I kept using my tse.

Yesterday I received my new 90 TSE L, I shot a job with it today on my Fuji GFX with a steelsring adapter and it works superb, sharpness, contrast, close performance, handling, all just great!

what a lovely addition to my arsenal! Highly recommended!

What is the difference to the older tse from your sight?
Better optic or something mechanical...? Or what...?

Thanks for explaining.

Hi,

Congratulations on the addition with your new tool. I'm envious.

The optical performance of my TSE 90mm is nothing to sneeze at, so anything that even improves on that is tempting.

Cheers,
Bart

How much shift can you get on the GFX? Is your 90mm the new Ver 2?

yes it is the version 2, announced a few months ago and available in germany for roughly a month now.

Shift and tilt is fully possible with the GFX.


The main difference to the old version is in close up work: it focuses 10 cm closer, which is quite a deal, because the old one had a gap in close up distances when using close-up rings, which the new one doesn't have, but much more importantly, the close up performance of the old version was rather mediocre and is now really great for the new one.

one thing which they didn't improve is, theat the lens is breathing quite a lot, so when you change focus one has to reframe to keep the crop. that makes composing with different focus panes a bit of a hassle.
