Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing This lens is technically flawless and simply amazing. I shoot landscape and architectural photography. This lens handles both so well. Of course, it's main application will be architectural photography. But it shines in landscape as well, especially if you would like to look up towards the sky at a 45 degree angle and not have all the trees vertically converging toward the center of the photograph! So, if you are wondering is it worth the money, it is for me. And if you are a serious landscape or architectural photographer, it will be for you as well. And yes, there is a third party filter and pinch cap attachment that allows full movement with no vignetting, contrary to what other reviewers say. So, have your cake and eat it too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The lens I have been waiting for This is simply a magnificent piece of glass. Can be used as a 17mm prime lens and performs better than any other wide angle prime in the Canon lineup. Great quality, no chromatic aberration, solid build. As an architectural lens, it cannot be matched. Shooting European cathedrals and basilicas is very challenging and this lens changes the game. Top to bottom, front to back captures, both portrait and landscape. Replaced the old 24mm standby and the improvement is enormous. Pricey, both worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER!!! Canon 17 TS 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. The 17mm is clearly the best lens Canon has ever made. Maybe you could argue about the 24mm too? I have an aftermarket lens hood and a 145mm circular polarizer for the lens…. which is quite useful. My only beef is the knobs hide the adjustment lines and you really need a flashlight in your hand to work the lens in a dark restaurant or yacht environment… relatively a small problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mind-boggling quality and technology - and photos This lens takes some work to understand, but there's no other piece of equipment at any price that makes the near-perfect pictures this lens takes. Panoramic vistas, distortion-free architectural shots, expanded or shortened DOF shots - all from one lens. And it is hideously cool looking in and of itself - a masterpiece of optical sculpture. If any of those types of photos are in your sights, there's no substitute. It's worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lens I bought this lens after my extreme satisfaction with EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM. I wanted a lens that corrects the super wide angle distortion effect. I took this lens with me to Paris and used it to photograph cathedrals and buildings. After few attempts, I was able to control focusing without then need of a tripod and captured tall structures up close with virtually no distortion. In the narrow streets of Paris, it is the only way you can capture the beauty of the Parisian architecture. As described in the manual, aperture and focusing need to be adjusted after tilt or shift. While this may sound complicated, it really is not. You can still take advantage of the in-focus indicator by manually adjusting focus while half depressing the shutter release. Exposure can be easily corrected by viewing the recorded image. In short, I was able to take crisp and sharp images with virtually no distortion by keeping the aperture relatively small and making successive corrections with few exposures, all without the use of a tripod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a TS-E lens I dreamed of came true! I've been an architectural shooter for over 20 years. I've been through several wide lenses starting with the 20mm, then the 17-35, 17-40, 16-35 and I currently have the 16-35 Mark II. While it's the best of the zooms and better than the fixed 20mm, it can't even come close in image quality to the TS-E 17mm. The only thing lacking is the ability to polarize this lens, which is something I do quite often when shooting interiors. So then I need to use the 16-35 instead, but I'm eventually going to get the TS-E 24mm Mark II and then will have that option, albeit not as wide. Otherwise this lens combined with my 5D Mark II creates files that look almost like photo-realistic illustrations. The edge sharpness has always been an issue with other UWA lenses, until this lens. If you think this is an expensive lens, then you're probably not the demographic that should be using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ultra wide angle lens available for Canon Having a 17mm tilt-shift lens means I'm able to get shots that no other standard DSLR can achieve. This is an amazing lens, and I'm thrilled by the tack sharp details I get out of this lens with my 5DmkII. This lens was made for architectural photography, and it's absolutely perfect for that. I only wish I could fit a polarizing filter to it, but the design of the lens makes that an impossibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lens for me I have these lens to use it in architectural photography, but the amazing thing it's that you can do a lot of things with it. It gives you a lot of possibilities to expand your imagination. Now I use it everywhere I go, for example I go to vacations to Las Vegas with family and I take amazing photos from the city and family only with these lens. Its a little bit hard to get an exact tilted picture without a tripod, but, they are better than if I take it with another lens. Quality of the pictures are very good, it's my first L lens and I just love it.
