If you really want to make sure you capture everything in your current view, and if you want to give the person who is looking at your picture an extra sense of presense, the wide angle lenses are a good choice. If you are using other lenses (like normal- and/or tele lenses) you often find yourself stepping further and further backwards to include everything in the picture but when using a wide angle lens that problem is gone.

The wide angle lenses might be useful for these situations:

  • landscape
  • architecture
  • interiors
  • editorial photography
  • sports and action photography

With a wide angle lens you can obtain a marvelous depth in the picture but when reading reviews about these lenses it is quite common with a decreasing sharpeness towards the edges and some lenses vignette (the corners becomes darker) at full aparture value.
