    Cons: Extreme corners soft, a bit too much distortion. Better gearing required for movement mechanisms; controls too coarse.

    Pros: Very large image circle for a 17, a useful TS mount finally, reasonable price for what you get. With this and the 24 TSE-II, Canon shows that they do know how to design wideangles, all previous attempts to the contrary.

    Summary: A very useful lens that is the main reason that it's worth sticking with Canon.
