Thanks man. Honestly I hadn't thought of that. I may have something, but for some reason I liked the people in this shot. I get the sense they are watching the lightning.

Here's another from last night, a bit different and combined 3 exposures with different light trails in photoshop.

6D + TS-E 17 with slight shift and heavy tilt for the extra OOF/bokeh effect

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.

Yep, I find the same. The TS-e 17L is more likely to flare than the 16-36IIL, but it's flare is a lot easier to fix in post. It's smaller, and less ghosting.

Ya, that's a freaking cool image. It's also one of those "right place at the right time" ones. How were you able to time the shutter release?

Thank you as well!

Plain old brute force trial and error. I got the settings for exposure to where I liked them, put it in bulb mode, and used my remote to keep firing the camera, which was on a tripod and mirror lockup enabled with a 2 second remote timer. After several seconds rinse and repeat. I was holding the remote over the shutter during the exposures, so If I saw lightning I would end the exposure. Sometimes I did it too soon and more lightning would hit immediately after I stopped the shutter.

I tried to also predict when the next lightning would hit but I am not sure if that's even possible. I suppose a lightning trigger might be a useful tool at some point :)

I don't know if this is a good technique or not, but it's the fist and only way I've done it so far. In essence, I end up with a bulb shot where the lightning is at the end, not at the beginning, of the exposure. Without a trigger of some sort, I don't think it's possible to time it perfectly to start an exposure with lightning in it, unless you're Bruce Lee with the shutter release. Or Chuck Norris. He would just punch the cloud and make lightning appear on command.

I ended up picking up one of these from someone on the forum locally for $1800, super excited to try it out in the field. I'll probably try my hand at a Lee Filter mod too.

Really need to get the parallax thing sorted when shifting to make panoramas. These shots didn't line up properly. Managed to fudge it in PS but not ideal...

That is an arrestingly impressive pano Jack. I haven't done enough panos with mine to experience any parallax problems - I didn't even know/think there was an issue with it until you raised awareness of it. The few stitched panos I've done with my 17 seemed to stitch perfectly. Likewise I haven't noticed/experienced any parallax issues with the TS-E 24 II.

Thanks a lot mate. It's only an issue with certain shots. I've taken a lot more shots where it isn't an issue than where it is. Generally only when there are some objects much closer to the lens than others where the images overlap.

Here's another one. I love the angles you can get with this lens...

I'm not sure whether the following is old news or not as I had read that Lee would not be developing an adapter for the 17mm TS-E. I stumbled across this post in the Lee Filters knowledgebase which says they are developing an adapter ring that will allow approximately 50% movement. It also says they expect the adapter to be available mid-August 2013. I have emailed them asking for an update. LINKY. (external link)
