+1 on the TS-E 24L II for landscapes...

I believe there is no better choice for the serious landscape photographer, you can

- shift & stitch to increase the angle further
- tilt for perfect end-to-end sharpness

when already the TS-E 24L II offers the best image quality of all (Canon) 24mm lenses.

i used lightroom 4 for a wedding album too. it is very neat from a workflow point of view. you can work directly with your raw files in an non-destructive workflow. book production at blurp allows for reasonable customization, is convenient and very good quality - no "fotopaper" though. lightroom 5 allows for improved control over the template.

85mm 1.2 ii $800

I have both the 17 and 24II ts-e lenses, and while I certainly agree that to get the most out of them it's best to use the tripod / live view combination, most often I use them hand held.  It takes a bit more patience, but for stationary subjects the results are fairly easy to obtain. (I mostly use shift, only occasionally tilt.)  One thing to note is that when shifting more than about 5mm off center, the in camera meter gets pretty inaccurate.  i often meter and focus first, then shift.  The image below was taken with the 17mm with about 10 mm of shift, handheld.

can only fully agree with everything in that statement!!!!

Two handheld examples from travelling Tuscany below.

A few samples with the TS-E 17mm...

2920: Tilted downwards to have the focal plane equal the floor thus that the latter is sharp foreground to Background.

3365: Most classical usecase (in my opinion), shifted upwards to preserve parallel lines.

3208: Less obvious usecase (in my opinion), shifted downwards to have more water and thus reflection in the picture while maintaining vertical lines.

All pictures were taken with camera handheld. Shifting is not so much of a problem handheld, the electronic gauge helps altough you can also control the parallel lines quite well trough the viewfinder.

so i understand from reviews the in-focus indicator will be working with this lens. is this also true when shifted or do you better work with liveview? i am currently using a 5dIII.
