Is this a joke, or did I miss its entry? I thought it was still to be released ...

No, it is "available", as is the new 24 TS-E. They come in a few at a time, it seems, and are sold out immediately. It looks like the first ones were delivered in the UK, about a week or so ago, haven't seen one here yet (continental Europe).

Kind regards, Wim

Hello Michael,

Do you have any sample shots, please? :D

Kind regards, Wim

Sure .. no landscapes as such as I have only been out on commercial shoots recently. I can't express how good these are straight out of camera. These have had minimal work done - a bit of post process sharpening as all 5DII RAWs need. Aside from that, pretty much default. As this size, it is hard to tell much but I have not had to correct for any barrel distortion and corners are lovely.

Oh - I am sure one of these was also with a Kenko 1.4 Tele converter turning the 17mm into a gorgeous 24mm lens.

14L or the 20L

14L gives you 114 degrees diagional and the 20L gives 94 degrees diagonal....

When did Canon release the 20L? I thought the next one up in focal length from the 14L was 24L.

To OP I would say either use the 17-40 at 40mm or a bit under, or if you do want a top prime, go for the 35L, which would give a useful focal length for landscapes on its own, or you could stitch panoramas with it either horizontal or vertical to make a stitch with minimal distortion.

17-40 has distortion @ 17mm and the 24-70 isn't quiet wide enough!

you could even try the 24mm f1.4L.
I have seen these being used hugely for lanscape!

There is no such thing as a 20L. :confused:

Thanks, Michael!

Could you maybe post a few 100 % shots as well (like the lower left corner of the above picture, and maybe a few centres?

TIA, kind regards, Wim

I so many words: damn
This is my dream lens.

Given its being super wide (some say 8mm efectively), the hugh front dome element, and no Hood available for this specific lens, how does it handle direct & side light flare ?

Thanks for posting !

Very, very well indeed from my experience thus far. Yes, you can induce flare if you really try but it is well controlled. Straight into sun is, oddly, excellent. Canon have done a truly remarkable job.

I would love to see any homemade hood for this beastie .. would be rather ungainly even if possible.

This, along with the TS-E 24mm II and 24mm f/1.4 II, has Canon's new sub-wavelength structure coating, which is supposed to be much better than the vacuum-deposited SuperSpectra Coating all the other lenses have, particularly as you move off axis. It sounds like it works well.

The new TS-E17L would rock for shifted panos! For less $$$, the current
TS-E24L Mk I. I have the 24 Mk I and its a very nice lens. The 5D2 might push it though.

My eventual plan for landscapes is the new 24mm TS-E, shift for easy panos, tilt for changing the focal plane to "extend" DOF from near ground to far infinity...

Although the 24L and 17mm TS-E look very tasty too. ;)
