This is the one you want.

Summary: This is the one to get. Chances are some of you are like me and are already a Canon user, have already decided to buy a tilt shift lens, but are trying to decide which focal length to buy. If you can only buy one, this is it. I haven't run into a situation where I needed a longer focal length tilt shift and I rarely wish I needed a wider angle.
Summary: This lens is a necessity in architectural photography. It is incredibly well designed. There are no lens defects that I have been able to discern in using this for 2 years. It's indispensable because the shift ability retains image quality fidelity where you would normally have to distort the image in editing software, and for high paying clients on enlargement sized prints, that is unacceptable.
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.
Summary: There's little to say that hasn't already been said. This lens is insanely sharp and the TSE features are just ridiculous. Fantastic for multiple exposure panoramas that line up perfectly in a snap. Fantastic for architecture shots of all sorts. Fantastic for close-ups believe it or not! Fantastic for selective focus. Easy five stars.
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.
