Wide World View
Same shot, taken at the exact same place, only this time with a wide angle lens.
I kept thinking I wouldn't really use a wide angle lens, but then I noticed how often I did want a photo of scenes that were bigger than my regular lens could capture.
I priced the official Canon lens...and quickly knew didn't want to spend that much for an official Canon wide angle lens that I would probably only use once in a while.
Ebay to the rescue.
Twenty bucks later for a "Made in Japan" lens...well, my photo world just opened wide up.
Yeah, a bit of optical bowing shows if I try a wide angle shot of something closer, like the kitchen table.
But for a distance shot...hey, it works just fine for me.
