 Makes me think about shelling out for some wide glass but dam that glass is expensive. Shot by Kaz is brilliant!

 Oddly I got neg propped earlier for saying I liked wide glass. But I'm with you, wide glass is where it's at.

 @privateer-wbc: wide ,zoom or some where in between. I choose the best focal length for the appropriate shot.
Im cheap and i doubt i will buy a 10 mm lens that starts at 500 bucks for the very limited amount of times I would choose that focal length.

 @Sshredder: i generally don't go out with a pile of lenses hanging off my back, or an intended shot. I suspect for most amateur photographers, that is the case. I take a lens out for a day and commit to it - which ultimately forces me to be creative. You can shoot any one scene with a multitude of perspectives. I think that the lens you take most often will be reflective of your style. For me, I like getting close and exaggerating perspectives - but not always of course. Ultra-wides work very well, for me. Fish eyes in particular I have grown to love, rooting back to skateboarding in my early youth. They allow you to get close to your subject and still capture 180° of environment and feature.

 @privateer-wbc: good point. It's great if you can have a photographic style. Really I want the wide for long exposure night photography. If I had the ultra wide I could see doing some unique perspective close ups of riding.
I should get an adapter and use old manual prime ultra wide.
You got me thinking. I can feel my wallet shrinking Smile

 @Sshredder: Plenty of wide angle lenses these days from 3rd party manufacturers for well less than $500.
I got myself a 7artisans fisheye for $130usd and to be honest its build quality is much better than expected.
