These seem to be very nice lenses. The ability to control separately the planes of shift and tilt is a true innovation with real world value.

The 17mm is obviously a niche product, but it should help in those circumstances where space is little and stitching is not an option.

Cheers,
Bernard

Jeez, I'm already lusting after the 24 f/1.4 Mk 2...  does anyone know the prices or filter sizes (I presume the 17mm is internal)?  So many lenses, so little $$

Anyone seen the prices on those things? Looks like canon is specifically marketing the MFDB crowd with that 17mm...

List price in Japan:

- 17mm: 295,000 Yen
- 24 mm: 250,000 Yen

Both to be available end of May (probably 09 ).

The prices on these things are outrageous. Canon certainly is trying to go after MFDB users. With 1DS III Resolution competing with lower end DBs (although not DR particularly), and now super wide tilt-shift with more controllable movements... perhaps a 35mm setup is a good alternative.

so that's around 2700 dollars  
wow,  
the price for the curent version of the 24L tse is around 1100$, so what's with the 150% price increase?
the 17mm on the other hand looks very interesting and could be a gift from god for interior shooting..

UK RRP's

17mm = 2750

Holy mackerel. It will be interesting to see reviews of those lenses, especially the 24mm versus the Nikon equivalent given the prices.

I would have thought that for the 17mm, the real benefit is the shift, since DOF will be good anyway.

Considering the 11m shift to either side is the 17mm TS-E the widest lens available for FF? I think the fov after shifting left and right would be greater than the Sigma 12-24

Very encouraging, even if the prices make us pucker. I look forward to using these lenses.

Yes, I think a shift stich horizontal pano photo would have a 120 degree FOV, roughly equal to a 10mm lens.

The lens is supposed to have shift capabilities of +/- 12mm.

 It is for Canon FF DSLRs'. Where did you read that it's for MF?

I guess he's saying mf= "manual" focus, not MF = Medium Format.
