Yes, definitely. It's really not even a fair fight, between the 16 and the 17TS-E. The 17 TS-E corners are still tack sharp, unlike the 16-35 which turns to mush the larger the aperture you go.

Don't get me wrong, I love my 16-35, but it's really not a fair fight between the two. Each have their own strengths. My main reasons for keeping the 16-35 is it's all-around usefulness (it's a swiss army knife type lens for me) and it handles flaring and bright light sources better than any other lens I've tried. Two things that the 17TS-E does not do well with AT ALL!

Huh?:confused: I disagree with the flaring on the 17. It actually controls it much better imo. And you can clean it up easily in post.

17 TS flare.

My experience is that the ts-e17 handles flare incredibly well

I agree with Todd. Maybe it's handling is better, but because of the bulging element it is significantly more prone to flaring than any flat front element lens. Irritatingly so in some circumstances. I use mine daily and find that to be the case.

When shooting on a sunny day, the 17 will flare unless you keep the sun clearly in your back.

Or inside any home or office building with ceiling fixtures.

I'm sure it works great, but that thing cracks me up. I might buy one if it said "Not a Terrorist!". :lol:

I'm glad you posted it. It might be goofy looking, but that WonderPana - which I love - is goofy looking too. If it helps get a better image, I'm all for it! :)

LOL. That is goofy as hell. I'll just continue to use my hand ;-)a

But, I stand by what I said. Yes, the 17 handle flaring very well considering what it is, but it still a huge problem just from the nature of the lens. If I know I'm going to be shooting near a lot of varying strong light sources, I will often use the 16-35 instead. The 16-35 can actually use strong light sources to it's advantage, artistically - I can't say the same thing about the 17.

Not really bad-mouthing the 17, as you all know.. I love the damn thing to bits... but this is an issue I come across with this lens a lot, and it's one of the reasons I keep my 16-35 around.

Beautiful one Jérémie, but it seems you didn't shoot that one with the TS-E 17 ;) :p

Sometimes the flare can have an interesting effect with this lens ...

Finally got out to shoot some architectural/city type stuff, what do you guys think?

This was a 91 second exposure, @ f/16, with the Fotodiox CPL + 3-stop GND, plus some attempt at light painting the foreground (my first such attempt) and then brought up the foreground in post about 1.5 stops.
