    Hello Matt,
    Thanks for the nice video.
    Which camera body did you use with the UWA lens?
    What is your opinion about the tamron 10-24?
    Thank you very much
    Amir

    Hi Matt,

    Just found your interesting tutorials , or what ever you call them. I am a Swedish photographer, between pro and serious hobby, shooting with D810, D800 and D3s. I have a project this coming weekend, a marriage in the archipelago, October windy and even worse in worst case. We are talking Sweden! Three days. I have decided to use the Nikon 20mm 1,8 and the 58 mm 1,4 and maybe also 35mm 2.

    I also have Nikon 14-24 2,8 but to my mind the fixed lenses mostly give a little better quality.

    I have a SB900 which I am going to use on the camera I think. The wedding will be outdoors, pm 15:00 early dawn in our country. The dinner area is rough, earth floor! and simple environment. Live orchestra and 100 guests, sitting tables.

    As an eventual extra I maybe will bring the Nikon 70-24 2,8.

    I have decided to shoot with the 810.

    If you have the time both to take in all my writing and give me your thoughts about my ideas I would really appreciate that. You know, I want to do my very best as it is my son getting married...:)

    I sure do hope to hear from you!

    Friendly yours,
    Torbjörn Inge

    Hi Matt, I recently plunged into the full frame with a Nikon D750 and almost imidiatly screwed on a Tamron 15-30. Wow. My first time down the rabbit hole with a wide. I'm enthralled with the pictures I can capture. I'm in Thailand now with my Thai wife and are able to get those off beat locals only type travel shots that are some of the best I have done. Bottom line. The UWL has enormously opened up my photography eye. GO WIDE!

    Hi Matt,

    Nice discussion on the use of UWA lenses. I have the Nikon 10-24mm DX lens and love the distortion I get when I'm really close to my subject. My friends say I should correct the distortion but I think "why shoot wide if you are going to correct afterwards". I know that makes me sound like a newbie but I started my artistic endeavors through graphic arts and the use of linear perspective was always a joy; especially when sketching city scenes. What's your thoughts on either correcting distortion or leaving as is?

    Matt, I shoot a Pentax K5 IIs with a 10mm(really 15) and if I keep the camera level, I am pleased with my photos. By the way, how does one get a 'Get your gear out' t-shirt way up here in Sunnyvale, CA?

    I'm shooting with a Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 DX on a D500. Truthfully, it has been a bit of a learning curve for someone who usually wanders around the woods with a 200-500! As I develop better technique I am finding that I like the massive perspective change from my normal nature/bird photography. It will take some work before I am producing work that I consider good enough to put out there, but it's been fun so far!
