Excerpt: This is such an incredible lens! so glad I made the leap and invested in this great piece of hardware. As a landscape and architecture photographer, I couldn't imagine going on location without this lens now that I have it.
Excerpt: If you are looking at Canon tilt-shift lenses you are headed for a serious financial commitment. I started out buying an EOS 5D Mark III so that I could take advantage of full frame and eventually buy these lenses due to their extraordinary capabilities. Along the way I bought a 24-70 II, the TS-E-17 and TS-E-24 II. I reasoned that I needed both the TS-E-17 and TS-E-24 II because in the past I have used both angles of view with my EF-S 10-22 on crop.
Excerpt: Very sharp lens, that does things ordinary lenses can't do. Necessary tool for architectural images. Does not disappoint. I put off buying this lens until recently, should not have waited so long.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this lens for exterior and interior architectural photography. It is always better to get it right in the cameral instead of counting on software to correct perspective. I also own the 17mm TS-E and am thinking of selling it. This focal length is much more useful with less distortion or flare.
Excerpt: I would say this is a amazing lens in canon lineup. A lot of people may spend a lot of time on thinking for either 17mm f4 or 24mm f3.5. My answer is 24mm. Because it is more practical and excellent to 17mm. It can be added on filters and when the tilt and shift is not needed, it becomes a wide angle lens which provides a great image quality. So, it does not need to worry much about whether the tilt and shift lens is necessary or not.
Summary: It's hard to overstate what an incredible lens this is. Super sharp, precision focusing, perspective correction and less vignetting than I would have expected at 2/3 to 3/4 tilt. I've got some great lenses but this is the only canon that approaches my Zeiss 50mm. If you have the need go for it. You won't regret it.
Excerpt: I can run the accolades on and on about all of the features this lens has, but you can read all of that at the many review sites. I'll just relate my experience to you. I purchased this lens as I had planned on using this lens to do more than just photographing buildings. Which it does very well with little effort on my part.
Pros: Creative Potential Limitl, Easily Interchangeable, Moves Well Between Tilts, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is a remarkably sharp lens that takes landscape photography to the next level. It requires you to me more studious with the shot, and a tripod is a requirement for excellent results. It is a very creative lens; however, I use it primarily for increasing depth of field and keystone correction. I am pleased with the purchase. Note: Leave the locking screws unlocked whenever able in order to avoid the problems encountered by others. Not that big of a problem, I found.
