I’m very impressed with the TS-E 17/4L, though my sample had a problem, which I also document in my review. In spite of that, I was able to cover the lens behavior quite well, and I think potential buyers will be intrigued by my findings.

Architectural and landscape photographers in particular should be looking at this lens, and I think my review will really help there.

Included are a variety of examples showing just how compelling the use of the shift capability can be when combined with the ultra-wide 17mm focal length.

The 17/4L is an amazing lens really; at full shift a stitched 60mm X 24mm image can be made, equivalent to a diagonal field of view of a 9.5mm lens! What’s truly impressive is to see the superb control of a variety of optical properties in such an ultra-extreme wide angle.

The 17/4L would be the first Canon TS-E lens that I would buy, were I in a buying mood for such a lens; it’s excellent and absolutely unique. I’d love to own one, and only the price holds me back.
