I have both right now. I used the 17-40 for 95% of my landscape shooting until I got the 24 ts-e and now I use that 95% of the time. They're both great lenses, the 24 is just far superior in terms of IQ, but it's far more expensive too.

Tell me about it, I had to sell the 17-40 and the 24-105 and still had to add cash for the 24ts-e

Ouch...is the TS-E really worth the loss of all the other lenses?

Wouldn't be in my bag, especially the loss of an UWA.

I wasn't really using the 24-105 anyway plus the 24 ts-e shifted left and right to create a 3 shot pano is roughly the equivalent of 11mm so uwa is covered. Sharpness is different class though

Floyd is right, part of the beauty of the tilt/shift is being able to shift up/down or left/right. 24mm is about perfect for most landscape shots, but if you need to go wide, just shift and merge the photos seemlessly.

The 17-40 is still one of my favorite lenses I own though, they both have their place.

Wondering if anyone can share their experiences of using a variable ND filter with this lens? Considering buying the Genus brand for this lens to partner with a 7D for seascapes/landscapes. Really dont want to outlay the $200 for a filter that is blah.

I used this lens on my 7D and it was ok, but since I've purchased a 5D Mk III I really love this lens and now have a better understanding of what a wide angle lens can do.
