Did you realise Todd that you can own both the 17mm TS-E and the 11-24mm.
I really don't see the sense in this. Why would I want to crop an image from the 11-24mm when I can use the 17mm TS-E and obtain the shot I want in full resolution?
You seem to be searching for excuses to not get a tilt shift.
meh, I've used the TS plenty, and it's not for me. The feature really stands out when you're shooting architecture and/or objects with straight lines, however, stitching is sometimes troublesome, especially if I'm not printing large. I've done stitches with wide angle lenses that can pass off as shift images, with globs of resolution.
the point is that the 11-24 can replicate the TS with loss of pixel pitch for architectural items, and I can certainly make due with that, however the simplicity of a massively wide shot, certainly outweighs shift ability IMO. Many times I want cloud movement, no stitch. Wave movement, no stitch. People in the scene, no stitch. Fleeting moment, no stitch.
On the other hand, if I've got to get corrected verticals, no problem. I can crop out some of the scene and still get good sized prints.
the TS is lower on the totem pole, and should cater to architectural shooters most.
