I'm going to the TS-E 24 f/3.5L II, and stitch when I need wider.

If you have the 24 F/1.4 L II which TS-E would you get, the 17 to get a different focal length or the 24?

Jkok - I'd go 17ts in that situation without hesitation

I have the 17 - when you need 17, you need 17, period, but 90% of what I shoot is interiors. The other 10% is made up of 5% exteriors and 5% fun stuff that has nothing to do with architecture, so i went with the 17.

in an ideal world, i'd own both, because they are both jaw-droppingly amazing

I used to have the 24mm mk1. It was great for interior shooting, but sometimes it's just plain not wide enough.

Then they released the 17mm TS-E and 24mm TS-E mk2. I debated for a while on whether I should stick with 24mm or go to 17. In the end, I went with the 17 and a Canon 1.4x TC II. This way, I get 17mm, and with the teleconverter, I get 24mm too. Stopped down; the image quality is great with the TC. It's quite convenient to kinda have both lengths in one.

17mm + 1.4TC:

I was leaning towards getting the TS-E 17 over the TS-E 24, just wanted to see what others thought.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

I finally decided on the 17.

Having both the 5DII and 1DIV I get a 17 and a 22, so that seemed like a good solution.

Can't wait for it to arrive tomorrow.

The 17-40 might be going up for sale later in the week.

Anyone shoot the 24 on a crop? Find it too long?

I do at times...makes me wish for a FF body....have even though about picking up an old 5d...

But something with live view is a perfect match for a lens like this...

Anyone want to give me a 5d mk ii? ;)

Hi all, I'm going to Europe soon and planning to buy TS lens for some architecture shots, is 24 enough for most shot or do I need 17? Thanks.

You should probably be a little more specific about your destination(s). Not all of Europe is the same.

Are you shooting on a FF?

Things get kinda cramped in EU streets to be honest, If you said you were going anywhere other they europe I would say a 24 would be fine. Would you buy a 17 just for a trip thought? if a 24 would be better suited to the normal shooting you would do outside of Europe.

FF...get the 24mm

Crop...get the 17mm...even though I do love the 24 on my crop, I'd kill to get it on a FF

I decided on the TS-E 24. I shoot mostly landscape, and outdoor architectural images. I have the 16-35 and 10-22, so I have an idea of what the wider fov is like. I chose the 24 over the 17 because of cost, filter application and just not really knowing which I would like better.
I have not had it long enough to say it is the better choice for me, that may take at least 6 months of shooting for me to say so.
I will say it is an awesome lens, but I also see online images of the 17 and they also look awesome.
My advice for you....buy both. ;)


just a few of my thoughts...
Pierre

Paris, Rome, Italy. Let's say I'm shooting the Colloseum a couple step (maybe 10-20 meter?) from the entrance door, is 24 wide enough?

I'm using FF. Thanks all for the reply.:)

Anytime you choose to shoot that closely to such a large structure, wider is better. If you think you'll do a lot of that sort, I'd recommend the 17. Don't forget that your composition doesn't have to necessitate having the entire structure in the frame.

I found Rome uniquely cramped in a lot of places. The Vatican and Paris, not so much.
