Using the Tilt feature on the TS-E MACRO lenses

Solution

Using Tilt (TS-E50mm f/2.8L MACRO)

To tilt the lens, slide the tilt lock button away from LOCK, and then turn the tilt lock knob counterclockwise to loosen. (Fig. 1)
 

Tilting the lens for shooting

Turn the tilt knob to adjust the amount of tilt. The amount of tilt can be adjusted in a range of ±8.5° with the thick line on the tilt scale as a reference. (Fig. 2) (A tilt scale is also located near the tilt lock knob.)
Focus the shot by turning the focusing ring. (Fig. 3)
Turn the tilt lock knob clockwise and lock it before taking the shot. (Fig. 1)
  • Do not turn the tilt knob forcefully. This may cause malfunction.
 

Locking the Lens in a Non-Tilted Position

Turn the tilt knob so that the thick line on the tilt scale is aligned with the tilt index (at a click position). (Fig. 1)
Turn the tilt lock knob clockwise to lock. Slide the tilt lock button toward LOCK to lock tilt. (Fig. 2)
  • When tilt is locked with the tilt lock button, do not turn the tilt knob. This may cause malfunction.
