17mm ts-e (canon) photos
« on: August 14, 2014, 09:46:43 am »

I've been checking out the 16mm ts-e group on flickr recently. This lens gets a lot of high praise, but I find I don't like the photos very much. Often, when this happens, I wonder if the people in the group just aren't very good, or if the compression or processing is softening the image. Anyone here with this lens? Care to share some photos?

Did you mean 17mm Canon?  If so a great lens as is the 24mm (newer design)

Crap, I did mean the 17mm. Dyslexia strikes again.

There's an Attach button. Or you could link from flickr or similar.

Pic from a hotel session for a tile company. Thanks Trev, somehow I could not see it.
Hope it helps

Crap! LuLa seems to be becoming yet another playground for tire-kickers, the likes of DP Review forums  >:(

Pretty cool. The overlay threw me at first until I figured out what was going on. Downward shift to bring the floor in focus?

Zero tilt. I relied on F11 to get most in focus. A little downshift to include more floor as it was the main subject, not the room.

Do you often tilt the lens, or do you tend to stop down and use shift movements instead? This is a general question for all owners of this lens. I'm curious.

I only have the 24 but know plenty of people with the 17.

Mostly they use shift, either for perspective or stitching. Most of them would be happy with just a 17mm shift lens.

No, I rarely use tilt with both 17 and 24. I had the 45 but sold it in anticipation for the new version. With this lens I was more inclined to use tilt.
In my experience, using tilt with the wide-angles is hard. With the advent of Live View, checking focus became easier but I have to admit, that after years of using them with film and digital with no LV, I mainly use shift.

I really like this one. Is that a shift to the right for the barn face? It's always hard to tell in lower res photos.


Downward shift?

#1: Probably a vertical shift to straighten the walls.

#2: Tilted, using live view to check for focus.

Thanks, everyone, for reading my mind when I wrote "shift" but meant "tilt" so many times today. My brain plays tricks on my eyes and fingers a lot, it seems.

I really liked the 17 TSE and think it was the pick of all the Canon super wides a year ago when I had one.
The landscape and interior stuff I did with it off a tripod always looked good, though maybe a bit flat right off the raw.
