Mac, do let us know how you feel the 24mm and the 17mm are different, and how they overlap.
I knew I wanted a TS lens, especially since I don't like perspective distortion and end up losing resolution and cropping. Also, the effect of selective focusing has always intrigued me.
But I wasn't sure if I want the 24mm TS-E or the 17mm more.
Pros for the 17mm include: wider angle will work better for the highrises that are my first goal. I work in a highrise complex and all the buildings are quite photogenic, especially at night. Also, I like indoor architectural photography a lot. If were to make photography my profession, this probably would be the most likely way.
Pros for the 24mm include: easier maneuverability, ability to use filters, and shallower depth of field.
Questions for the pros:
1. Do you expect restriction of movements with the 17mm + TC if you use a Lee adapter and 82mm screw-in/100mm square filters?
2. How much selective focusing is possible with the 17mm? How about 17mm + 1.4x and 17mm + 2x?
