I understand that under 24mm the 16-35mm will cause distortion on close ups..
But even over 24mm distortion is present. I shot a christening today and due to limited space a few shots were with the 16-35mm and still distortion at 24mm and above, Even at 35mm.. I know that the more distance from the subject decreases distortion but I need/want close up shots !!!
I also realise that if you shoot down on people(Subjects being shot as whole body shots and I am shooting at their head height) will also give distortion, but should I have to get down on my knees to subject waist height every time to get full body shots to decrease distortion ( I won't remember to do this all of the time in stressy situations and corners will still be distorted to a degree)..
I don't know if I can live with the 16-35 anymore
Do wide angle prime users have the same issues?? or are primes 24,28 or even the 35mm the way to go (the word... EVEN on the 35 meaning that I still have to step back from subject, so still not wide enough in tight situations)??
What are your experiences with zoom 16-35 or 17-40 and prime wide angle? ? ? ?
Please do not hesitate to correct me if my analysis/findings or thoughts are incorrect...
