This is a 45mm manual focus lens. The Canon TS-E tilt-shift lenses enable photographers to control depth of field and to correct image distortion, this makes it possible to take sophisticated pictures that cannot be shot using a conventional lens. This 45mm version can be tilted up to 8 degrees and shifted up to 11mm. The tilting function inclines the lens relative to the image plane which enables an extraordinarily deep (or shallow) depth of field. The shift function moves the optical axis of the lens in parallel off the center of the imaging plane. A frequent usage of this feature is to eliminate the tapering effect of tall buildings. With conventional lenses, the vertical lines of the building converge towards the top of the photograph. By shifting the optical axis, the vertical lines remain parallel and vertical.
It definitely takes some practice to use this lens effectively, but the results are very satisfying and well worth the effort.
