Just got a new lens, and I totally adore it! Thank you so much papa chin :') I've really grown to like wide angle photos, because they force you to move closer to your subject and you can get more things into your frame (if that is your intent).
√ Good for environmental portraits
√ Still allows for more proportionate photographs
√ Gives the photo a more 'fresh' look
√ Light weight
Here are some sampler photos using a Canon 60D body + the lens!
