We Love

♥ Amazing tool for architectural photography, tilt and shift movements can be rotated
independently of each other, allowing perspective and depth-of-field to be controlled separately
♥ Fast f/4 maximum aperture with circular diaphragm produces beautiful background blur
♥ Incredible image quality, ultra wide-angle gives a strong separation between foreground and background elements

Expanding the possibilities for tilt-and-shift photography
The TS-E 17mm f/4L is an ultra-wide angle tilt-and-shift lens, providing wide-angle views for cameras with APS-C and full frame sensors. Tilt and shift movements can be rotated independently of each other, allowing perspective and depth of field to be controlled separately, enhancing the flexibility of the lens.

Wide range of movement
With a 104° diagonal field of view, and ±6.5° of tilt, ±12mm shift and ±90° of rotation, the TS-E 17mm f/4L is one of the most flexible lenses of its type. Locks on the tilt and shift mechanisms are also included, ensuring that unwanted movements are avoided.

High precision lens elements
A high-precision, large-diameter moulded glass aspherical lens element gives outstanding edge-to-edge resolution and low distortion. Chromatic aberration – common in wide-angle shooting – is combated by four UD (ultra low-dispersion) elements.

Subwavelength structure coating
Designed for use in digital photography, Canon’s patented lens element coating helps minimise the ghosting and flare caused by internal reflection and helps to deliver crisp, clear images.

Robust build quality
Canon L-series lenses are built to withstand regular use in the most testing environments. Weather and dust seals provide added protection. A lens hood and pouch are also included.

Lead-free optics
Environmentally friendly lead-free glass is used throughout the construction of the TS-E 17mm f/4L.

Q & A

Can you use the shift ( not tilt) function whilst in the portrait position (as against landscape) on the 5dMkii and 60D? Thinking of tall buildings!

Yes, once attached to the camera, you use a lever on the lens (close to the mount), to turn the whole unit, allowing you to shoot a tall building.
