How big is 9mm to 14mm? - Reposted images

Hi,

I lost the images from the original series and so I took some more.

These are actual 11mm and 14mm pictures taken from the same place, and superimposed on the 9mm shot - giving a "real" image of the different FOV.

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 the top or side.



My original of this was a bridge over a 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 not 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.

Ah! I found one of the originals hanging around on Flickr.

It better shows how the extra 5mm is useful.
