IT is here! :D
Just out of the box, with its (umbilical) hood cord tied as Canon tied it.
I'll post images and comments as soon as possible.

the-digital-picture.com has the ISO12233 Resolution tests for both lens published. Let's just say that the new 24 TS makes the mark1 look less than impressive. Unfortunately the high price and larger filter size means that an upgrade for me won't be happening.

It also looks (from the same site) that the TS-E 24 MarkII is superior to the TS-E 17 for sharpness, both in center and edges.

Yesterday, the TS-E 17 was in B&H stock for few minutes .... and gone.

Yep, the 17/4 has to pay for its extreme focal length, and it's softer than the 24/3.5II especially in the corner wide open. But I usually shot with wide-angle TS-Es at f/8 or even f/11: at this aperture the 17/4 is evenly sharp and well contrasted troughout the picture. For instance, look at this 100% crop of the extreme corner with maximum shift (that's to say, 30 mm far from the optical axis of the lens!), no post production: to me it's impressive!

Yes indeed, for a corner crop it is FANTASTIC.
I was trying to order it from B&H the other day, but it was too late ... it was gone.

Congrats for the new baby !

Based on the shift (compare this to the TS-E 17 samples) I am guessing the "center" of the image is now the extreme... which is why the "corner" doesn't get any visibly worse. Still, amazing performance, and I bought it on the samples seen to date.

It should be. That 17mm lens is a lot closer to a "10mm FF lens" if you consider the whole image circle (hence the front element), and is compromised both in IQ and tilt-ability (only 6.5degrees in comparison with 8.5 on the 24) to manage its unprecedented FOV. Very exciting optics, both of them, and I hope to put the 24 to serious use in the future.

Yeah, I know that. But the corner crops are now the ultra-extreme edges of the image circle, and even they show little-to-no loss of IQ!!. With the mkI things degrade rather quickly beyond the normal 35mm image circle.

I'm going to go freeze my credit cards in a block of ice...that should prevent me from making any spontaneous purchases.
