Canon Wide Angle Tilt Shift TS-E 17mm f/4.0L Manual Focus Lens for EOS
For discerning architectural photographers, there is no lens that is too wide. Tilt and shift movements, features normally found on large format cameras, can be bestowed upon a smaller format of camera with a lens such as this Canon 17mm f/4L TS-E Lens.
Being a Canon "L" lens, by definition it is a premium Canon optic. The 17mm TS-E has several distinct elements that make it stand apart from more common glass. Firstly, designers integrated a set of physical controls that allows users to rotate the direction of the tilt and shift independently of one another. Secondly, there is ±6.5° of tilt and ±12mm of shift that gives photographers ample ability to correct for perspective when taking images of interior or exterior spaces, and landscapes.
EF mount lens is compatible with all Canon EOS cameras
Wide image circle of 67.2mm is 50% greater than 35mm/full frame film area
High precision glass (18 elements/12 groups) for low distortion and high resolution to the edge of the image
Tilt and shift mechanism rotates ±90° allowing shift in any direction
Tilt mechanism rotates ±90° allowing tilt in any direction relative to the shift
One Aspherical and four UD lens elements minimize chromatic aberration
Floating internal focus mechanism delivers high image quality throughout focus range
Sub-wavelength structure and super-spectra coatings minimize ghosting and flare
It uses a circular aperture for beautiful out-of-focus areas and has an SWC lens coating to control ghosting and flare to a far greater degree than with earlier coating technologies.
