I have been holding off on getting a 17 TS-E because I've got the Lee 100mm holder and a bunch of filters and having to start over with something like the Wonderpana is not attractive to me. I read that you had toyed around with the DIY adapter made from a spare lens cap. I know the biggest limitation from that setup is the lack of shift; did you find that shift was limited so much that the 17 TS-E was not effective when using the adapter and holder?

I've made the DIY set up and I dislike the limitation in shift. With the WonderPana their is no vignetting.

That 2nd shot in the truck shoot is a killer!

Agree on the lens cap hack vs. Wonderpana. I went with the latter and it was 100% worth it. I didn't like the idea of limiting the unique functions of this lens. If you search this thread it's been discussed quite at length.

American Folk Art Museum Building, its fate still unclear.

If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.

Has anyone else had this experience? Apparently to fix a seized tilt locking knob, the price is over $500 from Canon. W. T. F.

Lens works totally fine...other than the locking knob being sized. Outrageous.

That sucks Mike, seems like a ludicrous price. In LA there's gotta be some mom and pop type camera stores (any of those still left anywhere?) where they may be able to fix it cheaper. Don't know just thinking out loud. $500 to fix a seized knob sounds excessive, even on this lens!

Totally agree Mike. It's a crazy price for an apparently "faulty" locking knob. I'd imagine that any hardware store would have a suitable replacement for it at a fraction of the price. I have read about somebody recently finding suitable replacements in an electrical store for their "lost" locking knob from their 24mm ts-e.

It's a load of crap, frankly, especially at the price of the lens. It works totally fine sans that knob. They say that they can't just replace the knob, they have to replace the whole tilt assembly.

Not exactly chuffed with the treatment by CPS, but that is another story for another day. I've requested that they send it back without working on it. I will keep you guys updated if anything further develops.

Worth a shot but give a call to www.FullertonCameras.c​om (external link)

They do some repairs and I know the owner worked for Canon before so it's a possibility.

Here's a few I took at Pebble Beach. Even though this lens is f/4 it is still great for night images. For the 1st shot, I took the foreground in one long exposure (10 min) and shifted up for a 45 second exposure of the Milky Way and Venus. The second is just 1 vertical shot, but with separate exposures for the foreground and Milky Way.
