Simply Amazing


from Nashville, Tennessee

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 you would like to look up towards the sky at a 45 degree angle and not have all the trees vertically converging toward the center of the photograph! So, if you are wondering is it worth the money, it is for me. And if you are a serious landscape or architectural photographer, it will be for you as well. And yes, there is a third party filter and pinch cap attachment that allows full movement with no vignetting, contrary to what other reviewers say. So, have your cake and eat it too!


SUPER!!! Canon 17 TS


from Seattle, WA

I am a professional photographer in Seattle. I shoot interiors for both commercial and residential builders, architects, and interior designers. I also shoot many yacht interiors for builders, brokers, and dealers. I have had the 16-35 zoom… and it worked OK but you lose a lot of both quality and image when you straighten out the lines with software. So far the 17mm tilt shift along with the 24mm tilt shift and numerous other lenses I have are the way I shoot. The 17mm is clearly the best lens Canon has ever made. Maybe you could argue about the 24mm too? I have an aftermarket lens hood and a 145mm circular polarizer for the lens…. which is quite useful. My only beef is the knobs hide the adjustment lines and you really need a flashlight in your hand to work the lens in a dark restaurant or yacht environment… relatively a small problem.


One of the best lenses


from Boston MA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Amazing lens, crispy sharp and a drem for architectural photographers. Only down size is the lack of threading...


Great lens, best wide angle TS out there


from Boston MA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Amazing lens, great construction and very reliable/tough/durable. Highly recommended!!


Sharp sharp sharp


from Miami  -  Pro Photographer

A great lens, sharp corner to corner


Good piece of glass


from Hayward, CA  -  Pro Photographer

If you shoot architecture, mountains, or anything else where you need to look up, you need this. Or if you like the toy/model effect, this works for that too. Solid construction, locks and knobs are smooth and efficient. Tilt and shift axes can be rotated independently from each other.

Best Wide Angle


from Lake Worth, Fl  -  Photo Enthusiast

Excellent for wide angle shots. Detail is phenomenal. Crisp and clear all the way to the edge of the picture. Everything you would expect from the best. But wait!!! You can control the image perspective, do easy panoramas, make megapixel monsters, and control the plane of focus. The ultimate in image control!!!


Useful lens for architecture


from Las Vegas, NV  -  Semi-pro Photographer

With such a wide angle, I was conserned about sharpness in the corners. I found the lens does very well. Overall I have found it to be quite sharp. Unfortunately it does not work with autofocus. The best way to focus it is using the camera's live view at 10X. I would recommend getting a Hoodman to use with it. It is solidly built. The user must be careful to protect the protruding lens element. No filters are possible.

Amazing Lens


from Chicago

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, I was able to control focusing without then need of a tripod and captured tall structures up close with virtually no distortion. In the narrow streets of Paris, it is the only way you can capture the beauty of the Parisian architecture. As described in the manual, aperture and focusing need to be adjusted after tilt or shift. While this may sound complicated, it really is not. You can still take advantage of the in-focus indicator by manually adjusting focus while half depressing the shutter release. Exposure can be easily corrected by viewing the recorded image. In short, I was able to take crisp and sharp images with virtually no distortion by keeping the aperture relatively small and making successive corrections with few exposures, all without the use of a tripod.


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


from Nashville, TN  -  Pro Photographer

Great lens for architecture and tight spaces. Love the angle of view and really has become my main wide angle for interiors. The 24mm has always been a little long for many rooms, the 17mm fills those gaps.
