How big is 9mm to 14mm?

Hi,

I posted this in Lens Focus>wide Angle, but thought it would be appropriate here too. Should I just provide a link here or repost?

I posted something similar in 2009, but I accidentally deleted the images from the original thread (links to another site) and so I took some more.

The idea was to show the real-world difference in the range from 9-14mm to show the extra coverage you get for your 5mm.

These are all E-400 with 4/3 9-18mm.







Especially if you want to "anchor" to one side. My original of this was a bridge over the river: The 14mm could barely get the bridge in, but the 9mm showed the whole bridge and scenic areas to the side. Shame I can't return to that place! I apologise for the distortion - it's no a perfect map as it was (badly) hand-held. Still, it's accurate in the FOV to give the idea.


I hope this is useful to someone.

Regards,

David.

A nice visual aid to wide angle lenses

An excellent visual comparison. Well, maybe not so excellent since I've now added it to my shopping list and my flexible friend isn't going to like it!

I got the same positive result when posting this before on DPR. I know what it feels like to see results and want something!

This visual style really shows what extra room you get and IMHO the 9mm has given me some of my best shots. Distortion is low if you hold it level, and I have managed shots that were simply impossible without it.
