A TS-E lens with tilt and shift capabilities enables the correction of perspective distortion and depth of field. A large-diameter ground and polished glass aspherical lens is used for the front element, correcting distortion and coma that tends to occur on tilt and shift movements. It provides a large image circle necessary for tilt/shift coverage. A floating design provides sharp and high-contrast images from the closest focusing distance of 0.3m to infinity. Electronic control of diaphragm by EMD (Electromagnetic Diaphragm) enables AE (Auto-Exposure) photography even in a tilt/shift lens. Manual focusing only. There are two more TS-E lenses in EF mount lens series.
