Seems my Nikon post has ruffled a few feathers at Canon. To make it up to them I want to talk about the new 17mm TS that I purchased from Team Digital in Perth. I hope Nikon have had a look at this lens as it is amazing. I have been blown away by its sharpness and it was evident when in live view at 10x magnification. I have the 50mm f/1.2 and the 85mm f1.2 and they are awesome lenses but this is better again. It is a weird looking bit of kit with a bulbous front element and bloody scary to use as that bit of glass can scrape on anything so easily. Don’t know if there is a lens hood for it but I think it needs one. Maybe someone from Canon could enlighten us. The images I have are so sharp and will post some as I get a chance, I am in crisis mode or is that suck up mode. Still a little bit of controversy earned me 36,000 hits on the blog in under two weeks and a few people to take notice. Sorry Canon you still make bloody good gear, if you have any news you want to spread let me know!!
Also a big thanks to Ben at team digital for letting us use two TS lenses to help make our minds up to get one. Cheers buddy, and thanks for the great service!! 😉
