Product Description

Product Description

The widest tilt-shift lens in Canon's lineup, the new TS-E 17mm f/4L lens expands shooting possibilities exponentially on EOS Digital cameras. Designed with UD glass to minimize and compensate for chromatic aberrations, with specially coated aspherical elements for the highest possible glare-free image quality, this tilt-shift lens offers an angle of view of 93 degrees. New TS revolving lets users freely combine tilting and shifting within the range of +/- 90 degrees in the direction of movement. The lens also has an improved tilt & shift knob with an enhanced range of movement of up to +/- 6.5 degrees and revolving lenses for better operability, it uses a circular aperture for beautiful out-of-focus areas and has an SWC lens coating to control ghosting and flare to a far greater degree than with earlier coating technologies.

First the lens itself is an excellent wide angle prime. Very sharp edge to edge even wide open. Virtually no flare. But it should not be bought for that purpose. The 14mm f2.8 is cheaper (at $2,000!) and faster. The 16 to 35mm f2.8 zoom is even cheaper and much more versatile. Also, this lens does not auto focus and has a big unprotected bulb in front that requires special care in handling.

What the lens does is produce wide angle shots that cannot be obtained from any other lens. In a normal wide angle, tilting the camera so it is not parallel to the ground makes the vertical lines tilt strongly open or closed. The more you tilt the camera, the stronger the effect. Sometimes you want that effect. It can enhance the height of things. But other times you don't. This lens offers the ability to control line tilt or eliminate it altogether. Set the camera so lines are all straight or tilted to the extent you want then shift the lens itself up, down or sideways to capture the desired field of view. The effect is amazing.

But that is not all. Because lines can be kept straight, shooting two or more shots by shifting the lens instead of the camera facilitates stitching multiple shots into very wide angle images. It is possible to get a shot wider than a fish eye lens with no linear distortion.

And that is still not all. The ability to tilt the lens helps depth of field.

Canon's TS-E 17mm f/4L is a fantastic lens for architectural photography; especially interiors with smaller tight spaces. I am often asked which Canon wide angle tilt-shift lens to purchase (first), so here are some thoughts:

1. The TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II is slightly sharper and better corrected against chromatic aberration. Another asset for the 24mm is that is much easier to use with filters (I use the Lee Foundation kit with 4" x 6" gradient neutral density (GND) filters). The 24mm is my go-to tilt-shift lens and I prefer it for landscapes. But, when I need a wider field of view, especially for architecture, I regularly reach for the TS-E 17mm f/4L lens.

2. Although the 24mm tilt-shift is in some ways better, the TS-E 17mm f/4, might be the best tilt-shift to start with for any one of three reasons: 1. You plan to shoot interiors, 2. You plan to shoot cityscapes with tall highrise buildings (shooting downtown NY or Chicago for example), 3. You supplement your purchase with a Canon 1.4x EF Extender III. Extenders work beautifully with Canon's tilt-shift lenses, and a TS-E 17mm f/4L used in conjunction with a 1.4x extender will produce a 24mm focal length.

One final note to those considering this lens: The bulbous nature of the front element makes using filters a challenge. But, thanks to Fotodiox, you can use a circular polarizer and neutral density filters with this lens with their "WonderPana" filter system, which they have made custom fit to this lens (they also have WonderPanas for other bulbous lenses, like Canon's excellent EF 14L f/2.8L II). The WonderPana simply attaches to the TS-E 17mm f/4L exactly the same way the lens cap snaps on. A brilliant design by Fotodiox! I still can't use GND filters with the lens, but between the the 1.

If the price has not completely deterred you, and you love wide angle images, this is your lens. I cannot rate it high enough. I shoot it on a 5d mark 2, and it is best used on a full frame camera. It is sharp! Not as sharp as the Nikon 14-24 with the 16:9 adapter, but it blows away the canon 20mm, the older version of the 24 mm ts-e, and the 24 - 70 L . It is a beauty to behold. And the images are truly remarkable. I can't imagine you will be disappointed.

Although the nikon 14 -24 sharper and a SUPERIOR lens in terms of image quality, the 17 mm ts-e can do things that will simply make you happy. Using the shift function, you can take a series of three images, that are overlapping by 30% or so, and then merge them in photoshop to give you 2 things. 1) you will have an effective sensor size of something like 48mm x 36 mm( depending on the direction of the shift) and 2) with that size sensor you will still have a 17mm lens! The files are big. On my 5d mark 2, they sometimes work out to be 500 - 600 MB. If you are going to print 8 x 10 or 13 x 19 it does not matter, but if you are going to go large, 30 x 40 and up, it makes a huge difference. You are effectively getting medium format sensor resolution with a 35 mm camera ( Once you merge the images together)These files have an angle of view on a 35 mm camera, that is equal to about a 10 mm lens, with no fisheye effect and little distortion unless you are close to things. This lens will give you images that will amaze you. The perspective( in these merged files) is real but unreal. It is unlike anything else.

The build quality is beautiful. It is hard to imagine having any disappointments in that area. The front lens element is a bit scary. Beautiful and scary at the same time.
