I dunno I guess that the lens, even though the same distance from the subject, can have a profound difference on face shape/expression.
I always assumed wide-angle lenses were for panoramic shots and sports.

most sports have zoooooooooooooooooms
they werent taken from the same distance away but same fov or whatever
plus girls changing expression and looks like they messed up the first pic

haha her expressions 40mm really expressive as distortion is at it's most, i see a evil child or a lost soul there

lens sim , watch the angle of view degrees change http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/lens/si … /index.htm

wondered about distortion but thought that was more on wider lenses

50 is supposed to be where the wiiiide distortion stops ?

I've been looking at the EF 17-40MM F4 L USM or EF 70-200 F4 L USM.

Preferable, but not necessary. I know the IS lenses cost considerably more. Would like to keep it below $800 (can be used).

i like the 17-40. then again, i do mostly landscape. the 70-200 would be good to start with, and maybe pick up a wider lens later.

Another thing to consider is would you want more range and IS or image quality. Say a Canon/Tamron 70-300 IS/VC v 70-200.

Could do a used 70-200 plus a $200-300 wide tele

Did you get your 70-200 used?

Picked up a 50mm 1.8 & 70-300mm 4-5.6 IS USM. More within my budget. An L series lens will be my next upgrade after I've taken a few thousand shots with these.

i wish i was good at taking pictures. i rely on the camera too much, and even when i try to be 'artistic' with a shot, it's out of focus.

brb, posting in FWP thread . . .
