The Canon TS-E 17mm f4L ultra-wide-angle tilt and shift lens has been specifically designed by Canon for architectural photography. Featuring low distortion and excellent edge-to-edge sharpness, lens offers independent rotation of Tilt and Shift mechanisms to allow perspective and depth of field to be controlled separately. With a 104° diagonal field of view combined with ±6.5° of tilt, plus ±12mm shift and ±90° of rotation on both tilt and shift mechanisms, this is one of most flexible lenses on market.

Expanding the possibilities for tilt-and-shift photography


The TS-E 17mm f/4L is an ultra-wide angle tilt-and-shift lens, providing wide-angle views for cameras with APS-C and full frame sensors. Tilt and shift movements can be rotated independently of each other, allowing perspective and depth of field to be controlled separately, enhancing the flexibility of the lens.

Wide range of movement


With a 104° diagonal field of view, and ±6.5° of tilt, ±12mm shift and ±90° of rotation, the TS-E 17mm f/4L is one of the most flexible lenses of its type. Locks on the tilt and shift mechanisms are also included, ensuring that unwanted movements are avoided.

High precision lens elements


A high-precision, large-diameter moulded glass aspherical lens element gives outstanding edge-to-edge resolution and low distortion. Chromatic aberration – common in wide-angle shooting – is combated by four UD (ultra low-dispersion) elements.

Subwavelength structure coating


Designed for use in digital photography, Canon’s patented lens element coating helps minimise the ghosting and flare caused by internal reflection and helps to deliver crisp, clear images.

Robust build quality


Canon L-series lenses are built to withstand regular use in the most testing environments. Weather and dust seals provide added protection. A lens hood and pouch are also included.

Lead-free optics


Environmentally friendly lead-free glass is used throughout the construction of the TS-E 17mm f/4L.
