A New Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L Tilt-Shift Lens Coming? [CR2]
« on: April 11, 2018, 02:30:55 PM »

We’ve now heard from multiple people that an update to the Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L tilt-shift lens is likely coming some time in the next year. The current version was announced in June of 2009, so we are approaching the 10 year anniversary of this highly regarded lens.


There has been no mention of the TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II tilt-shift being updated as well. This lens was announced alongside the TS-E 17mm f/4L back in 2009.


More to come…

Must be prepping for higher resolution sensors.
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

A tripod foot would be really helpful for stitching but it's plenty sharp in my opinion. Unless there's room to really surprise us. Fotodiox has the 17mm already covered for filters so I'm not concerned about that.

I would much rather have resources go to developing something like a 14mm TS-E.

I would really be surprised if Canon released some useful lenses this year like a 24-70mm f/2.8L IS or 50mm f/1.4L IS or 250mm f/4 IS Macro with ring-type USM motors. :)

Useful to who? Those lenses are useless to me. You can pick get a nice sigma 50 if you like. Canon has people like me still in their lens system because of these TS-Es.

Great news!

I have to full line up of these  and loving them more every day! Last week I did some multishot panorama with the 50 mm T/S using some tilt  and Lord! How sharp everything was from 3 ft to infinity!Contrast was superb!Great color.

I just bought a 24 mm T/S (for the 2nd time) 3 weeks ago - so it will be a Grrrr - if the MK III comes up now!

I will be waiting to upgrade the 17 mm!

BTW- those 3 new ones are just awesome even as  regular lenses! So sharp! So contrasty!!

Thank Canon- that is why I am so loyal to you!

I would buy this: 250mm f/4 IS Macro with ring-type USM motors.  And I am definitely in the market for a 50mm with quick, accurate AF, also USM.

I am sure it will be great. Might top the Nikkor 19mm f/4 in price as well, though (like 3500$ or so).

Of all the lenses in Canon's current catalogue that doesn't need updating...it's this one.
Really? I can understand the new 35IIL, 85LIS and 135IIL...but a TSe 17IIL is a real surprise!

I really like my copy and I use it a lot more than I thought I would. It's great for architecture.

the current 17 ts-e is a superb lens.  this will be a hard lens to improve upon

That's why I can't see this as being realistic, now maybe they really meant a 14mm TS-E was in the works.

The 17mm TS-E is a nice lens, but it really isn't as sharp as you might hope based on the quality of the 24mm II or the newer lenses. A bit wider would make it really nice, though.

Exactly.
I use mine on a 5DsR and it lacks for nothing.
