Awesome, let us know how you like it! I'm still waiting on getting filters for this lens and using my TS-E 24mm before sunset and the 17 afterwards but that's only going to work for so long...

I see Lee have a new adapter to fit the 100mm system, anyone tried it?

Thinking of selling my TS-E 24mm and 16-35 to get this beauty.

This guy on the FM forum has picked up the new adapter: http://www.fredmiranda​.com …/topic/1081875/​6#11825999 (external link).

Thanks for that.. he seems happy, quite expensive though at £78.. for what it is.

So then.. I have a mint TS-E 24mm II , who wants to trade their 17?...:D:p

As long as you're OK with the limitation in shift. With the Wonderpana set up, you can shift all the way.

I had a lot of problems with Fotodiox when I ordered their Wonderpana Ultra kit. Was left waiting for two months for the kit to be complete. The filters themselves are well made, but the threads can get jammed fairly easily (aluminimum). I'd expect brass, considering the cost. I'm also not too fond of the small screws that hold the square filters in place, as they are easily lost & my hands often cramp (arthritis), so I find them a bit awkward. The filters don't give much of a noticable colour cast, but I did get a fairly strong magenta cast from the ND16. The filters are huge & you tend to get funny looks from people, but then again, the 17mm ts-e is an unusual looking lens, so I wouldn't expect it to go un-noticed. Overall, I'm happy with the kit, but haven't really managed to test it much. It's also nice to have the ability to use the full shift without vignetting.

Thanks for that, they don't take the 100mm filter though ?, is that correct?

Edit , I see not.... 145mm is it?

After months of deliberation, I have just picked up a used copy of the TS-E 17mm. I did some test shots yesterday, and I wonder if you guys could tell me whether you think the chromatic aberration I'm getting is reasonable. I read so many review of this lens that stated that there is no CA, so I was expecting it to perform better.

When the lens is centered, there's pretty much no CA. But when I shift it all the way one direction or the other, it gets pretty noticeable (when pixel-peeping). It's hard to correct using the usual tools, too, since the frame isn't centered on the lens.

Here is a 100% crop of the lens shifted all the way to the left. This is from a 7D, so I expect it would get even worse on a FF, which is my next upgrade. This is at f/4, 1/1000, ISO 100. Sun was low in the sky behind me.

Am I being too fussy? I just don't want to keep the lens if I got a bad copy.

Wide open at full shift is about as drastic as it gets for a lens like this. I'd have to check a couple of mine to see but it's still a relatively easy fix, even if there are no 'automatic' profiles to do it.

Thanks. I was admittedly being pretty hard on it at those extremes.

What I meant by not easy to correct wasn't a profile, but rather the CA adjustments in Aperture/LR/etc. It seems that since they assume both sides of the frame to be symmetrical with respect to the center of the lens, they don't work well when the lens is shifted. Unless I'm missing something. I've never had a TS before.

Yeh I've had a couple of issues with Lightroom's CA correction as well. Sometimes no matter what I try it manages to affect another part of the image negatively. The only way I've found to get around it is to fix the CA in Lightroom and then export the fixed image and the original into Photoshop and use masks to manually merge them.

It will not take 100mm filters. My apologies for the late reply. :)
