Can't decide between this and the 16-35 F2.8!

If I could only have one, I'd personally probably go for the 16-35. Sometimes I need a wideangle with autofocus, but you may not - depends what you shoot.

The distortion you get with the 16-35 angled up or down (vs the TS-E shifted up or down) can be sorted out in PP to quite an extent, but you will probably need to shoot wider to allow for cropping after the distortion correction. I never really noticed any loss in image quality when the pixels were stretched at normal viewing sizes.

I've never needed to use the tilt - DOF isn't normally an issue at 17 mm and narrow apertures (which is good as I never did get the hang of it when I tried it).

If you need to do wide panoramas without distortion, then the 16-35 won't be able to touch the TS-E (I wouldn't have thought - never actually tried it)

Wish if i was living in Ukraine, many nice buildings and sounds not so problem to shoot them, not in Dubai, i have hard time to find places to find those buildings without problems with security or public crowded, and with traffic from my city to Dubai i gave up to shoot there at all, but i hope if i get a job in Dubai then i will buy TS17 and then shoot there more if i work there.

Can't decide between this and the 16-35 F2.8!

Just to offer the other side from Jack880's point of view, I had to make this choice and went for the TS-E 17. Ok not really, as I just plain wanted the TS-E for a long time, but until I got this lens, I've always had a super wide zoom in my bag (first the EF 20-35 with my film Rebel and then the EF-S 10-22 for my XTi). I haven't really missed having one.

I only have a few lenses, one being a 24-105L. So the 16-35L, for me, would have provided me only the focal lengths from 16-23mm I didn't currently have.

When I had my EF-S 10-22, I rarely used the middle focal lengths; generally, I mostly used either extreme end.

So I figured the benefits of the TS lens outweighed the extra 7mm of range I'd get with a 16-35L. For closer shots I use my 24-105L. Until I get a TS-E 24 at least :)

Note also while f/2.8 is nice, for the majority of shots you'd make with this type of lens, a smaller aperture is usually in order. That being said I haven't found F4 to be a limitation especially with a bit of tilt applied when shooting a subject up close and wanting some background blur with this lens.

Your mileage may vary, of course.

I quite like all of the shots you've posted, but this one is really great!
