Just got a tokina 12-24mm from a fellow cser, and i'm now suffering from guilt. It's the most expensive lens i've bought to date, and i dunno if it's really worth it. The reason why i bought it: I wanted to take those cool wide pics like the old birds here.
The problem is that i dun make money from photos, and 700+ is a lot of money for a NSF. Singapore hardly has really nice scenery that warrants an ultra-wide, and i dun travel often. I tried snapshots of my family and found that most of the faces were quite distorted. How? I felt that i've bought an expensive lens that may not be used often.
Maybe i just haven't got used to the perspective. Maybe i need to learn how to use the lens. Maybe i just need to get the lens out and shoot more often. Pls convince me that i've made the right choice guys!
