Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L

17tse
Review Date: Feb 23, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very sharp, excellent flare control
Cons:
Protruding front element, oversized front cap

I expected this lens to be really good.
It performs better than I expected!

Sometimes I have to double check the EXIF, to convince myself that I am looking at a photo taken with a super wide-angle lens. The shift function does wonders, and the ability to rotate the shifting mechanism is very useful.

I have made some large prints, and the details I can discern does not stop to amaze me.

The build quality is stellar. Believe me, I have dropped the lens (sigh).
My advice: only remove the cap to take a shot and replace it soon after.

This is my favorite, out of many L lenses I own.
