No. When I rented the 24 TSE I shot hand held. When you get into the tinkering with panos, etc then you need it. No IS on these either.

It really comes down to how wide you want to to go first. The 24L is a great lens. but not nearly as wide as something like the 16-35mm or even close to the 14L in FOV. Do you want a zoom or a prime? How fast do you need the aperture to be?

I suppose aperture is not that critical for me as its going to be used for landscape and some architectural urban shots. I'm a complete amateur but really like this hobby. Just wanna make sure I make the right choice for the limited knowledge and experience I have. Thinking the tilt shift may be too complex for me at this point. So after extensive reading I'm still unsure so I will continue to read and educate myself. Hopefully a good used lens will come available and that will help with my decision

Have you thought about the canon 20-35? Its a good price and seeing the reviews for it, it seems quite good.

If you want to invest the moving in a wide / fast lens, to later using in low light the 24L is great.
I chose the 24L becuase it can shoot at f1.4 and f2.8 and f.4.0 and f8.0 etc
Fast is not NEEDED for landscape at all, but I would choose that over the more expensive 14L.
A f2.8 lens will work fine as will a f4.0 lens. But they can shoot at f1.4 like the prime.
But to but one lens and keep it, then buy one, then sell it to buy another.
Unless your looking at used lenses also.

May be a stupid question but is it mandatory to use a tilt shift lens on a tripod

No, but its much easier to get a sharp image with a tripod!
First off its manual focus, for which I use magnified (5-10X) Live View. But you may able to manual focus accurately with the viewfinder. The viewfinder is too small an image for fine focus for me.

Second, it gets harder when you start to add lens movements (shift or tilt). If you are adding shift to make vertical appear more vertical (and not converging), this can be done without a tripod, but its hard to loosen the shift lock knob, move the lens an appropriate amount with the shift knob and retighten the lock knob with only one hand while keeping the fine adjustment from moving. Its really a two handed operation.

Tilt can also be done by simply estimating the tilt angle (ie if you are standing) as the distance to the flat ground plane is known. However as the camera gets closer to the ground plane the tilt angle becomes large and the interaction between tilt adjustment and focus becomes much more difficult. I use both TSE 17 and 24 II lenses quite a bit, there are some examples of low angle shots in this article I wrote for use of an external monitor.

I was working on some old images and came across my 17-40. No slouch when it comes to sharpness. This is at 40mm with a crop and I sold it before getting a FF.

Well, I guess I'm lucky with my copy then. I don't see any need to go to a 16-35. however, if canon came out with a 14-24, then I might make a move.

This is pretty much my feeling. My copy of the 17-40L is fine. I would love a 14-24mm f/4, but my existing L works, as I do not shoot a lot of UWA.

This seems to be the way I'm leaning. 17-40 until canon comes out with a 14-24

You should read some of the reviews and comparisons on the Tokina 16-28 2.8 vs 16-35II. Sharpness is similar at center and sharper in the corners at half the price!

Filters are either prohibitively expensive/large or impossible on the Tokina, a deal breaker for most landscape shooters.
