Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L

17tse
Review Date: Mar 29, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: sharp sharp sharp, TS abilities (doh)
Cons:
price, flares, no hood!!!!!!

I struggled long time with this purchase, it was down to the ts-e 17 and ts-e 24 II.
even though i could have finally use my 82mm slim cpl filter with the 24mm i chose the 17mm for its sheer wideness.

the sharpness was even better than i expected.
i dont find the lens as flare resistant as many do.
yes its good but i am a night photographer and so i have to struggle with a lot of bright lightsources but the flares that appear are very concentrated and can me stamped away easily.

the one thing that gets me down is that canon didnt included a lenshood. hey you can still use this lens without TS function and then a lenshood would be possible!
