Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L Tilt-Shift Lens Review

 

The Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L Tilt-Shift Lens is, at review time, the widest tilt-shift SLR lens made . It is also one of the highest quality (both optically and physically) 17mm lenses made.

Canon TS-E 17mm f/4 L

 

The Canon TS-E 17mm f/4 L is an amazing lens although beginners will struggle to master its possibilities at once. When using the lens based on conventional settings it behaves pretty much like a normal ultra-wide prime lens. The center performance is...

Incredible Lense!

 

Bought this lense for a trip in July to the Grand Canyon. Spent a few days testing the lense down at the beach and it is incredible! The ability to get close to big objects is great. The shift function to perfect the framing is easy and gives great...

Reason Alone to Choose Canon

 

Canon has hit a home run with this lens. Setting aside the tilt-shift functions for a moment, it is a fundamentally stellar optic: incredibly sharp; minimal flare despite its bulbous front element; minimal chromatic aberration; and nearly no corner...

This lens is technically flawless and simply amazing. I shoot landscape and architectural photography. This lens handles both so well. Of course, it's main application will be architectural photography. But it shines in landscape as well, especially if...

Amazing Lens

 

I bought this lens after my extreme satisfaction with EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM. I wanted a lens that corrects the super wide angle distortion effect. I took this lens with me to Paris and used it to photograph cathedrals and buildings. After few attempts,...

Must Have in the Camera Bag

 

I've now owned the 17mm TS mounted on a Canon 5D MarkII for several months shooting home interiors for the Real Estate market. My 'backup' lens is now my 7D with a Canon 10-22mm lens, which is my comparison setup. I will not go into detail here as many...
