All the years that I’ve been playing with my digital photography, the vast majority of my images were taken on my 24-105 mm lens, and I didn’t own a wider angle lens than that. Until just before my trip to Switzerland.
I finally broke down and purchased a 16-35 mm f/4 lens.
I thought it would come in handy for those narrow streets in centuries-old cities like Luzern, and it did. But I didn’t have enough time to play with it properly before the trip, so I went out tonight around San Diego to get a little practice using it.
I knew that the perspective would be affected, especially at the 16 mm focal length, and I’m learning to leave a little more space around the edges of the image to allow for perspective correction in post-processing.
On the whole, I’m quite impressed with my new toy. Uh, I mean tool.
