TS-E 17mm f/4L is the widest lens in the TS-E lens line up. Featuring a newly developed 18 lens elements in 12 groups design, TS-E 17mm f/4L employs one high-precision, large-diameter GMo aspherical lens element to minimizes distortion and achieve high resolution image quality even at the periphery of the frame. It also contains 4 Ultra-low Dispersion lenses (UD lenses) to effectively minimize chromatic aberration which tends to occur in wide angle lenses. TS-E 17mm f/4L also incorporated the latest Canon SWC (Sub-Wavelength Structure Coating) which minimizes flare and ghosting prone to wide angle lenses caused by light entering at a large incident angles. Lastly, TS-E 17mm f/4L also features a floating mechanism to further reduces chromatic aberration over the entire range of focusing distances.
The TS-E 17mm f/4L features a large image circle of 67.2mm, providing an astonishing tilt capability of !O6.5¢FX and a shift range of up to !O12mm while minimizing vignetting. The TS-E 17mm f/4L now equipped with a new and unique TS rotating feature which significantly expands the operability and capability of the lens by allowing users to freely combine tilting and shifting orientation over a continuous range of 90¢FX.
The tilt/shift and rotating units in TS-E 17mm f/4L are made with aluminum die cast which greatly improve the lens" strength and durability while maintaining compactness and lightweight. The tilt/shift controls and locks have also been enlarged to improve operability. The lens also includes a shift knob cap that improves shift operability when installed. Tilt-locking mechanism can firmly lock the lenses in a zero-tilt position for optimal quality during ordinary use.
