With its independent tilt (+/-6°) and shift (+/-12mm) functions, low distortion levels and excellent sharpness, this lens is an excellent choice for wideangle and indoor architectural photography.
Expanding the possibilities for Tilt and Shift photography
The TS-E 17 MM F/4L is an ultra-wide angle tilt and shift lens, providing wide-angle views for both APS-C and full frame sensors. Thanks to Canon’s unique rotation system, tilt and shift direction can be rotated independently of each other. This allows 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 combined with ±6.5° of tilt, plus ±12mm shift and ±90° of rotation on both the tilt and the shift mechanisms, the TS-E 17 MM F/4L is one of the most flexible lenses on the market. The TS-E 17 MM F/4L also features locks on the tilt and shift mechanisms to ensure that unwanted movements are avoided.
High Precision lens elements
To achieve outstanding edge-to-edge resolution and low distortion, a high-precision, large diameter moulded glass aspherical lens is used. Chromatic aberration – common in wide-angle shooting – is combated by four UD elements. These features make the lens especially suited to architectural photography.
Sub-wavelength structure coating
Designed for use in digital photography, Canon’s patented lens element coating helps minimise the ghosting and flare caused by internal reflection- helping 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, and a lens hood and pouch are also included in the package.
Environmentally friendly lead-free glass is used throughout the construction of the TS-E 17 MM F/4L.
