Everything I hoped it would be and more

  • Excerpt: Technically excellent, optically astounding and simply amazing. If you are an architectural photographer, you already know that you need this. If you are a landscape photographer and are tired of shooting towards the sky at a 45 degree angle and watching all the trees vertically converge towards the top center of the photograph, then you also need this.
  • Pros: Great features, Optical Excellence

Great Lens but be careful.

  • Excerpt: I use the lens for architectural and landscape work. The build quality is very impressive but be careful when you receive the lens. It comes with a larger size knob for the shift mechanism and instructions to install it in lieu of the one provided. Don't do it! Either have B&H or Canon do it or Canon may invalidate your warranty for trying. It also requires a jeweler's phillips screwdriver.
  • Pros: Elegant
  • Cons: Demands Care, Demands Careful Handling

Great lens

  • Excerpt: I use this lens primarily for architecture photography and after renting it multiple times I decided it was time to have it in the camera bag all the time. The lens does distort a little but it is to be expected from a 17mm. Great to shoot in tight spaces.
  • Pros: Durable, Strong Construction

SUPER!!! Canon 17 TS

  • Conclusion: 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.

Sharp lens and easy to use.

  • Summary: Lens is a lot of fun. Very sharp. Easy to use. I didn't read the manual. Don't forget your tripod. Manual focus. It's super expensive so you might want to rent it first. Perfect for architectural photography.

Amazing

  • Excerpt: A unique lens, great for architecture shots, but also as a super wideangle (if not tilted or shifted). I use it both on a 5DMK3 and a Sony A7r with Metabones adapter IV and the results are definitely stunning. The front lens requires much care, don't forget it.
  • Pros: Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Difficult to Clean, Heavy
