worried about perspective distortion? don't be. Use it to your advantage.

I also wanted to check out how much the barrel and pincushion distortion affects real life images and not some chart.

I didn't apply any barrel or pincushion correction. Yet unless you use a ruler it is amazing how little of that type of distortion there is even at the widest end. I did crop some of these to get rid of distracting elements.

All great shots! The guy in #1 looks weird--or is he supper svelte?
ha ha. don't know for sure if he was that long. I was actually trying to make my way to the shade since it was 90 and I was roasting that I failed to noticed him.

holy crap that thing has a wide field of view.
yes it does!

Love the 4th shot! Note to self...use mine more LOL :biggrin:
go for it!

Did you test it at every focal length? Just wondering.
Yes. But I set out to caputure huge so it was mostly at 14 all the time.

Wow, they're great shots, how'd you get the clouds to move like that? I saw them, they did move :)
:smile: on the subject of clouds I'm amazed at the range of a RAW file from the D700. The sky was white on all of these when I imported it and somehow there was still data there to pull plenty of blue. raw ftw.

great shots!!!
thnks.

wow, I like the last one.
I just hate the turists walking around...oh wait I was one :smile:

#4 is great -- almost gave me vertigo. Thanks for posting.
thanks.

Hi LSSE.

Really great shots. The 14-24 i doing a fantastic job as well. You can't expect any lens to have no distortion when shooting up a high building.

You made the best out of it. Thanks for sharing ...

Regards
