Frequently Asked Questions
Is 21mm wide enough for landscape?
We've arrived at our personal favorite focal length for landscapes: 21mm. Yes, there are great uses for going wider or narrower, but if we had one prime lens to choose for landscapes, it would be 21mm. ... There are a number of fun 21mm lens options and it's often at the heart of the range of many wide-angle zooms.
Do I need a wide-angle lens for landscapes?
Wide-angle lenses are ideal for landscape photography: They have more depth of field at any given aperture setting and camera to subject distance than telephotos. It is simple to stop down and obtain front to back sharpness.
Is 35mm wide enough for landscape?
What's nice about 35mm photography is that it's wide, but not too wide. That is, rather than distorting the landscape like an ultra-wide-angle lens would do, a 35mm lens pretty much captures the landscape as you see it with your own eyes.
Is 17mm wide enough for landscapes?
Having said that, I assure you that 17mm is plenty wide for what you will encounter - you are shooting full frame I assume. I bought an 18mm just for the trip as my widest and did not employ it as often as I thought I might. I had a 21mm that was also used a great deal for the vista.
Which is wider a 14mm or a 35mm?
All numbers are referred to FF format (35mm). Ultra wide angle @14mm, picture angle on FF is 114 degree. At 114 degree, this is actually wider than the angle of view of human eyes. Perspective distortion becomes an issue at such a wide angle. As I recalled, this image is wider than what my eyes saw at the time.
Is there a 21mm ultra wide conversion lens?
Today, I’m reviewing the 21mm ultra-wide conversion lens, otherwise known as the SEL075UWC. The 21mm conversion lens attaches to the front of the FE 28mm and creates a 21mm f/2.8 lens combination with full autofocus and autoaperture.
What's the wide angle on a 14mm camera?
Ultra wide angle @14mm, picture angle on FF is 114 degree. At 114 degree, this is actually wider than the angle of view of human eyes. Perspective distortion becomes an issue at such a wide angle. As I recalled, this image is wider than what my eyes saw at the time.
