Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L Shift & Tilt Lens

The Canon  L series shift & tilt lenses give cinematographers and photographers creative control over perspective and depth of field in their images.

Canon TS-E shift & tilt series lenses are speciality lenses ideal for landscape and architectural photography and are compatible with all Canon EOS system single lens reflex cameras. The Canon TS-E range has significantly improved operability with low distortion when photographing buildings, consistent image quality throughout the image and reduced chromatic aberration when shooting at fixed focal lengths.

The manual iris ring, allows full compatibility with cameras made by other manufacturers, so that the iris can be operated manually.  

3 versions of these lenses are available from VMI - 17mm/F4, 24mm/F3.5 & 45mm/F4. 

Designed for architectural photography, the TS-E 17mm f/4L exhibits low distortion and excellent edge-to-edge sharpness, as well as independent rotation of the tilt and shift mechanisms.

Expanding the possibilities for tilt-and-shift photography

The TS-E 17mm f/4L is an ultra-wide angle tilt-and-shift lens, providing wide-angle views for cameras with APS-C and full frame sensors. Tilt and shift movements can be rotated independently of each other, allowing perspective and depth of field to be controlled separately, enhancing the flexibility of the lens.

Wide range of movement

With a 104° diagonal field of view, and ±6.5° of tilt, ±12mm shift and ±90° of rotation, the TS-E 17mm f/4L is one of the most flexible lenses of its type. Locks on the tilt and shift mechanisms are also included, ensuring that unwanted movements are avoided.
