Canon has clearly defined for themselves a niche area that merits a whole set of impressive tilt and shift lenses for their full frame cameras, offering focal lengths of 17mm, 24mm, 45mm, 50mm, 90mm and 135mm. We have here the 135mm, reviewed using the 50mp Canon EOS 5DS R camera body. The conventional approach to tilt and shift lenses has been towards the wide angle end, so the telephoto options are indeed a very interesting new departure, opening up new possibilities if we can find the applications to take advantage of these. It will also be interesting to see if the creditable performance of other lenses in the range can be maintained, so let’s have a close look and see what the 135mm can do.
