Featuring a unique tilt, shift and rotation system, the TS-E 17mm f/4L can help you capture the imagination, while capturing images that may not be possible with a standard lens. Ideal for architectural photography, this tilt shift lens makes finding that perfect shot easy, tilting 6.5° in either direction, shifting 12mm in either direction and rotating a full 180°. But this is not just an architecture lens. When used in landscape or close-up photography, you can create a range of beautiful effects, such as tilting the lens to get more or less of the image in focus and drawing the viewer’s eye to the subject of your shot. As an L-series lens, the TS-E 17mm f/4L delivers outstanding optical performance, providing stunning colour and contrast, incredible edge-to-edge sharpness, and well-controlled vignetting, distortion, flare and chromatic aberration. If you are a professional photographer, this lens can set your work apart. If you are a creative amateur, this lens can help you learn about lens movements and how they affect images, allowing you to truly unleash your creative side.
