Design and Features
Canon was the first company to offer 35mm camera users a combined tilt and shift lens. In 2009 the company added a new functionality to its Canon TS-E 17mm F/4L and Canon TS-E 24mm F/3.5L II lenses, allowing users to rotate the direction of the tilt and shift independently of each other. This is particularly useful when shooting product shots from a perspective where specific framing and focal plane is required. These lenses were created to produce the best image quality with high resolution, high contrast and low distortion.
Currently Canon TS-E 17mm F/4L is the world's widest tilt and shift lens.
The lens barrel is heavy, made of metal. The lens mount is metallic.
Focusing must be performed manually using the focusing ring located on the lens barrel.
Due to the prominent convex profile of the front element the lens does not have a filter thread.
The lens can be tilted up to +/-6.5 degrees and shifted up to +/-12 mm. The tilt and shift functions can be used singly or in combination. The tilt and shift can switch from right angle to parallel using the TS rotation feature (another lens with such feature is Canon TS-E 24mm F/3.5L II). The lens can be rotated through +/-90 degrees with click stops at every 30 degrees to change tilt or shift direction.
Aspherical elements (ASPH, XA, XGM) minimize spherical aberration, astigmatism, coma and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.
Low dispersion elements (AD, ED, LD, HLD, SD, UD etc) and fluorite elements minimize chromatic aberrations and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.
The lens incorporates a floating system that provides correction of aberrations and ensures constantly high image quality at the entire range of focusing distances from infinity down to the closest focusing distance. Learn more
