Looks like the 17 or 24 give the most interesting results.

That... and a fisheye. Before I did TS, I often shot with a FE lens to get more of the "scene" in the picture with a flower in foreground (f11 or so is plenty to the background recognizable).

I only have a few online, but if you look around, I have seen some great examples of this effect.

As for the TSE'S, the 24 is useful because you can also mount a PL (for blue skies and cutting reflections off the flowers/stems for better green), however the 17 has a greater relative tilt for focus placement, so you can go much more extreme in camera angle.
