One of the best threads here! Truly stunning images here!

Now I own this lens for about one month and i have to admit that I fell in love with it. :)

Some shift panroamas near my home town in Germany:

#1 a small dead tree on the island of Reichenau

Great shots, here. I love how you got reflections *and* the rocks under the water. Well done.

Great shots everyone. I'm torn between the TS-E 17mm and TS-E 24mm. I'd like to hear from owners of this lens why they chose the 24mm over the 17?

Shooting landscapes have you been in situations where the 24mm wasn't wide enough? It looks like shift-panorams are the way to go in that case but are there situations where those are tough to stitch?

I'm tempted to go with the wider lens but I shoot a lot of long exposures using Lee 4x4 filters and although there is a work-around to use them on the TS-E 17, the TS-E 24 takes filters normally which would make my life a lot easier!

I have both of them and love both of them, but my preference is to always shoot the 24mm unless I'm shooting architecture and need the wider angle of the 17mm to frame my shot.

Overall I think the 24 delivers a bit better image quality. For example, CA is practically non-existent with the 24, but is present with the 17. It's no big deal, but it just speaks of the technical excellence of the 24.

If your main subject is architecture, you may want to consider starting with the 17mm along with a 1.4x III extender - it's a fine way to turn a 17mm into a 24mm for not too much more money. But, if you're mainly about landscapes, the choice is easier: get the 24 so you can use your Lee filters.

Thanks David, I'm a landscape shooter but like ultra wide angle. My goal is to use filters with either one but the 17 provides some difficulties to do that as you know. Good to know about the CA differences. I've heard that the 24 is sharper too...do you find you use the shift feature on landscapes with the 24 often to get a wider shot?

Yes, the 24mm seems sharper to me (though both are satisfyingly sharp). Shifted panos are one of the best things about the TS-E lenses! They stitch up perfectly and they're perfectly planar images rather than cylindrical or spherical panos as with other lenses. I like the TS-E 24 over the 17 in your case. :)

I went with the 24mm for several reasons:

  • Price: I was short on funds.
  • I don't feel comfortable with a lens whose front element bulges and can't be protected with a filter. I'm still working without insurance (see the previous point).
  • I need to use polarisers and grads.
  • 17mm is too wide for portraiture and people shots.

All the reasons against a 17 are definitely reasons for the 24, but for me it was mainly a factor of what focal length I needed. I see landscapes (and urban) in 24mm.

For me it was an easy decision as I use lee filters and didn't want to have to modify something to use them on the 17 or buy an add on to use them on the 17. I sold my 17-40 to get this lens and haven't regretted it for a second. With the shift function you essentially get UWA and since the lens isn't moving they stitch in seconds with photoshop. Granted for close details you may get parallax when stitching but for landscapes it's never happened. The lens is just so versatile, portrait, landscape, landscape with vertical shift, landscape with horizontal shift, portrait with vertical shift, portrait with horizontal shift, shift and rotate etc. and that's just the shift function, throw tilt into the mix and you have more decisions to make when you approach a shot

Amazing shot rob ! How did you do it if you don't mind me asking I.e the fisheye effect curve?

I shot portait mode with the camera angled at about 30-40 degrees back, so the lower shift was near the horizon, then shot two frames either end of the shift, then turned the camera, 11 positions / 22 frames, and a whole lot of stitching.... because I angled the camera back you get the fishey effect once stitched.
