Compability, auto focus and focal length
This lens is constructed to fit all models of Canon cameras, regardless of camera model or type of sensor.
The possibility of using auto focus (AF) does not exist, since this lens only supports manual focusing.
The lens has a focal length of 17 mm. Depending on which camera the lens is used, the experienced and perceived focal length will be different. Please visit the list of compatible cameras below, it will provide the equivalent focal length you get on each camera.

Lens brightness and image stabilizer
The lens brightness and aperture value is f/4.
The lens is to considered fairly bright.  This will make it so much easier shooting in darker environments where you do not want or can use flash lighting, for example in churches or at different sports venues.
The lens lacks image stabilization, which otherwise os good for avoiding the blur that can occur when using slow shutter speeds.

Filter and Lens Hood
This lens does not support the use of filters which is slightly negative. To have the option to use filters, for their optic purpose or as protection, would have been nice but no.
Together with the lens there is a lens hood included but we have unfortunately no further information on model etc so feel free to contact us if you know more.

Prices and awards
TIPA TIPA Awards 2009: Best Professional Lens
The Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L has the widest view angle of any tilt and shift lens currently available for 35mm SLR cameras due to this it is the professional choice for architectural or landscape photography. The direction of the tilt and shift is independently of each other by mechanical rotation. The TS-E 17mm f/4L includes Canon´s sub-wavelength structure coating (SWC) minimising ghosting and flare caused by internal reflections.   See homepage

Text from Canon:"The TS-E 17mm f/4L is a perspective control ultra-wide-angle lens designed to address the need for broader angles of view in architectural photography and similar fields. In addition to its superb optical performance — achieved through the use of a precision glass-molded aspherical element for the front element along with four UD elements, the TS-E 17mm f/4L features a special sub-wavelength structure coating (SWC) that substantially cuts flare and ghosting caused by light rays at a large angle of incidence. The floating construction corrects aberrations at short focusing distances, resulting in better image quality even at the image edges. We also added two new features — TS rotation, which allows the user to set the angle between the tilt and shift anywhere between orthogonal and parallel, and tilt lock, which securely locks the tilt mechanism in the neutral position — while aiming to make the lens more comfortable to operate by using larger control switches than previous TS-E models.

The widest tilt-shift lens in Canon´s lineup, the new TS-E 17mm f/4L lens expands shooting possibilities exponentially on EOS Digital cameras. Designed with UD glass to minimize and compensate for chromatic aberrations, with a specially coated aspherical element for the highest possible glare-free image quality, this tilt-shift lens offers a diagonal angle of view of 104° on a full-frame SLR camera. New TS rotation lets users freely combine tilting and shifting within the range of +/- 90° in the direction of movement. The lens also has an improved tilt & shift knob with an enhanced range of movement of up to +/- 6.5° and 12mm repectively, with a revolving function for better operability. It uses a circular aperture for beautiful out-of-focus areas and has an SWC lens coating to control ghosting and flare to a far greater degree than with earlier coating technologies."
