Does anyone else notice that this lens has some really weird look around the edges of the frame that make people look really really close and big in comparison to the rest of the crowd?

I been shooting this lens a lot on both FF and Crop and it's a weird thing and clients are either ok with it or they hate it.

Fixes?

Are you using this lens at focal lengths shorter than 24mm to shoot people with a FF camera? If so, what you are seeing is the normal way that people will look at the edge of the frame when you are shooting with extremely wide angle lenses.

I suggest trying to use the lens mostly at 35mm when you are shooting people, unless you are shooting very large groups. Ultra wide angles are not commonly recommended for portraits.

Maybe the mods could move this thread to the lenses section of the forum. More folks would see it and you may get more answers over there.
