From the Manufacturer
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.
- Tilt and shift lens compatible with all Canon EOS cameras
- Ultra Wide 17mm focal length, ideal for architecture and landscapes
- High precision lens elements for low distortion and high resolution to the edge of the image +/- 6.5 degrees Tilt and +/-12mm Shift
- Tilt and shift mechanism rotates +/-90 degrees allowing shift in any direction
- Tilt mechanism rotates +/-90 degrees allowing tilt in any direction relative to the shift
- Aspherical and UD lens elements minimise chromatic aberration
- Sub-wavelength structure and super-spectra coatings minimise ghosting and flare
- Circular aperture for creative, blurred highlights
- Floating internal focus mechanism delivers high-image quality throughout focus range.

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 1.4x Extender III and the WonderPana system, I can mostly replicate the TS-E 24mm with the TS-E 17mm. I still prefer having and using both, which I do, but knowing these things might be helpful for those struggling with the dilemma of either starting with a TS-E 17 vs the TS-E 24mm.
I have used shift lenses since 1971 on 35mm cameras, and done large-format view camera shooting. This lens is the closest you can come to the latter control in a 35mm format, and it is short enough to even provide useful T/S control on APS-C format digital cameras where it would be the equivalent of the formerly shortest 'traditional' tilt-shift lenses on so-called "full-frame" cameras.
The other makers will eventually equal this, I suppose, but for now, this is the king of its class.
CON: I miss having a filter to protect the front surface of the lens. Just pay attention to what you are doing.
