These seem to be very nice lenses. The ability to control separately the planes of shift and tilt is a true innovation with real world value.

The 17mm is obviously a niche product, but it should help in those circumstances where space is little and stitching is not an option.

Cheers,
Bernard

Jeez, I'm already lusting after the 24 f/1.4 Mk 2...  does anyone know the prices or filter sizes (I presume the 17mm is internal)?  So many lenses, so little $$

The prices on these things are outrageous. Canon certainly is trying to go after MFDB users. With 1DS III Resolution competing with lower end DBs (although not DR particularly), and now super wide tilt-shift with more controllable movements... perhaps a 35mm setup is a good alternative.

wow,  
the price for the curent version of the 24L tse is around 1100$, so what's with the 150% price increase?
the 17mm on the other hand looks very interesting and could be a gift from god for interior shooting..

Holy mackerel. It will be interesting to see reviews of those lenses, especially the 24mm versus the Nikon equivalent given the prices.

I would have thought that for the 17mm, the real benefit is the shift, since DOF will be good anyway.

Considering the 11m shift to either side is the 17mm TS-E the widest lens available for FF? I think the fov after shifting left and right would be greater than the Sigma 12-24

Yes, I think a shift stich horizontal pano photo would have a 120 degree FOV, roughly equal to a 10mm lens.

The lens is supposed to have shift capabilities of +/- 12mm.

This is crazy, even with the battered British Pound.

The T&S lenses are the backbone of my Canon usage and I'll certainly go for these two, but I'll be buying them in the US or in Hong Kong rather than here in London.

Interesting: the 17mm is a very wide angle tilt and shift lens for use with sensors that have micro-lenses and which covers significantly more than the 35mm image circle, to allow for that tilt and shift. This is in striking contrast to the avoidance of microlenses in most medium format sensors, supposedly due to the inability to work with some short focal length lenses and/or shift lenses. (The 17mm covers a wider angular FOV than any non-fisheye medium format SLR lens, shift or otherwise.)

This and the very high prices of these new lenses suggests that Canon is in part chasing former medium format markets, and showing that it has some clear technological advantages in either lens design or micro-lens design, to allow these lenses to work without severe light fall-off away from the optical axis. Or will "micro-lens vignetting correction" be an necessary part of post-processing?

The current 24 TS-E has a red mark on each side of the shift scale indicating that shifting beyond that point produces unacceptable edge performance. I can confirm that this is indeed the case on  a full frame DSLR. Edge performance suffers badly at full shift with the current 24 TS-E. For this reason I prefer to use the 24 TS-E on one of my cropped format DSLRs.

The fact that these new lenses are significantly more expensive is encouraging. It suggests that Canon have got their act together and have at last produced a couple of good quality wide-angle lenses. However, if the new lenses still suffer from serious image degradation at full shift, there'll be reason to complain about the price.

I use a Phase One P45+ on a Linhof M679cs with Rodenstock lenses down to 35mm (and on occasions I use the camera's sliding back to stitch two frames, achieving an angle of view very similar to the 17mm T&S) I don't find there's a material difference in the vignetting issues I get with MF digital compared to using the current 24mm T&S, in that it's necessary to correct for vignetting on most shots!

However, when using shifts and tilts on the Linhof there's an additional step, involving taking a "blank" shot (using the current shift and tilt settings) through a diffusion screen, Phase One's RAW converter then uses this to adjust for differential colour correction across the frame. This problem gets worse the wider the lenses and the greater the shift/tilt. It'll be interesting to see if the Canon T&S 17mm has the same issues.

Just as a side note to the above I am pretty excited about these new lens's - as a user of the current 24mm TSE [now for sale on ebay :-)] on a 1DS MK3 I have been sweating an upgrade as I have not been happy with this lens performance on the 1DSMK3. Its soft in the corners - VERY VERY soft compared to the 24mm F1.4L MKII.

Looking at the images of the lens one of the most appealing visual upgrades looks to be much larger tilt and shift knobs. The current lens's are awkward as the knobs are too small [for my fingers anyway] - so very glad to see this has been improved. Likewise the user ability to shift the axis as required.

Regards the cost - its the price of admission tis all. Not much point in complaining about it - if the quality is there then its just worth it IMO. I have no idea what these will cost in Australia - but if they are around $2,500 US - then thats typically going to put them around $3,500 - $4000 Australian each.

Paul

Filter sizes and MTF graphs can be found on the Canon EOS website.

The MTF graph for the new 24mm is just stunning. At f8, it looks like a top notch 85mm lens. I wonder if Canon may be exaggerating here a little bit.

Also, the front element is 82mm, while the old one was smaller. This was a good move on Canon's part. It will help avoid the soft corners that plagued the old model (which is one reason the MTF graph on the new model looks so much better than the old one).

It looks like Canon has been listening to our complaints about poor wide-angle Canons. Perhaps we'll see more new wide angles from Canon with better specs.

If the MTF graph is legit, it puts this lens ahead of any Leica lens at this focal length. As such, it deserves its new price.

Time will tell.

Fantastic.  As soon as I can offload the hassy kit a 5d2 and the new 24mm will be my bread and butter.  Do you hear that Hasselblad with your overpriced 1.5x adaptor?  I just hope it stands up to its promise.

Nice thing about moving from medium format, this all seems really reasonably priced

Oh, and the 17mm, amazing.  Can't justify it for its usage, as once i'm at 17mm I can get away with a straight shot, but still, kudos to Canon.

The really nice thing about the 17mm and the reason I will put one on my shopping list as soon as they become available is because even if the shot is straight on at 17mm it doesnt matter - just shoot it without any movements. the new 17mm MTF graph is miles better than any other option Canon have at that specific focal length - in fact the only other option at 17mm is really the 16-35mm MkII or 17-40, both of whose MTF is a mess by comparison.

I think the 17mm really is a wonderful option and I am really glad Canon have announced it. Unless someone really needs auto focus or that extra 3mm of wide angle the new 17mm TSE is a much better option than the 14mm MkII I would think.

True true.  I didn't look at the MTF before.  It just pains me to buy such a pricey lens that I wouldn't really utilize much of what the expense is for.  To tell you the truth, a compact prime between 15-17mm around f/4 with outstanding performance for under a grand seems like what canon needs.   Too bad it's worried about f/1.4 wide angles, which don't matter much to me...

Whilst I agree that based on past experiences :$ conversions have been outrageous, I just wonder if the price differences on these items have been influenced by the :Yen conversion rate, as I have read that the pound has depreciated against the Yen by over 60% in the last year or so.

Still a lot of money though...

So, I know this is a stretch here, but away from the holy grail of lens performance....

How has the handling been modified?  It appears as if one can rotate the lens from a shift to a rise/fall without removing it from the camera?  Or is it just the ability to modify the direction of the axises, ie the angle of the shift to swing so they are inline or 90 degrees apart?

Sorry if that wasn't totally clear, but you get the point... hopefully

If the handling is far improved, this could be the real strength of these lenses.

Canon is using a new type of MTF chart.  The old ones had the stats for 10 lp/mm and 30 lp/mm, saggital and meridonial, wide open and f8.  The new format clearly does not have all this information.  So, the question is, what do these new charts show?  What lp/mm and what f-stop?

That is a natural explanation; or in other words, medium format wide angle and tilt-shift lenses maybe do not use such highly retro-focal designs (as high exit pupil was not so important for film), and up till now, MF sensors have needed to accommodate those "low exit pupil" lenses. This still raises the likelihood that Canon and Nikon, through their greater financial resources and thus an ability to modernize their lens designs more quickly, will continue to encroach significantly into what is currently medium format territory.

As to barrel distortion, is it so inevitable? I believe that the Olympus 7-14 f/4 ZD has fairly low distortion, despite its extremely retro-focal design, needed by the 38mm from lens mount to sensor. How about the Nikon 14-24/2.8, another highly retro-focal design?

And is it indeed the case that Canon is still using 10 and 30 lp/mm, along with only a single aperture? If so, does this not seem a bit inadequate when Canon sensors have about 80 "pixel pairs per mm" or more? Compare to the use of 60lp/mm by some MF lens makers, and by Olympus for 4/3, and the 40lp/mm used by some other MF lens makers.

Note also that Canon excludes diffraction from their theoretical calculations. It would be easy for them to include it, of course, but it would make their MTF look a little worse.

Good advice in todays economy. I've been very happy with my 24TSE so I will have to see a good bump up in quality before I spring for either of the two new lenses. The independent tilt and shift is very tempting however.

By looking at the bulbous front element, makes think it could be fixed in the barrel and cornenr resolution departments. But since it is a Canon wide I have to see to believe. I'd loved to be proven wrong by Kuanon.

I had a look in my LR library and I dont have anything shot at F5.6 - However, here is a 100% crop from the extreme bottom left hand corner. Shot at F14, ISO 100 on the 1DSMK3 - tripod mounted, mirror lock-up, live view for critical focus. I am really anal about focus, and usually spend over a minute tweaking at 10x magnification in live view.

The shot itself is of a salt flat, and salt crystals, so its a good candidate for fine detail.

[attachment=12005:_74X43232009.jpg]
There has been no sharpening applied to this crop - It was shot RAW, imported in LR, then exported as a TIFF to CS3, cropped and save to jpeg on maximum setting.

Those charts for the new 24 TS-E and 17 TS-E look very impressive. Corner performance certainly appears to be better than the 24/1.4 ll prime, but one should bear in mind that the thin black lines represent performance at full aperture and 30 lp/mm, so it's perhaps not surprising that the 24 prime at F1.4 is so significantly worse than the 24 T-SE at F3.5.

Nevertheless, the solid, thin blue line, representing 30 lp/mm at F8, rises above 90% MTF in the extreme corner of the 35mm frame. That seems unbelievable, but if true, it augurs well for the performance of the new 24 TS-E at full shift.
