    ok will close this thread, thanks again guys!
    i'm just raising this as an example of how the distortion can kick in



    if u know how to use forced perspective, it can be very dramatic.

    With allenleonhart's example photo (quoted again for convenience), the size is exaggerated by the arm being closer to the camera than the rest of the body. This also applies to the round plate on the table, which looks elliptical. You'll note that the guy in yellow/black striped shirt looks much more proportionate, even though he is also near the corner (maybe the photo has been cropped? ). That person is more parallel to the sensor plane.

    Just an update Guys, for those who's in the same scenario as me.

    I love my 10-24! it suit perfectly on my shooting style, portrait with scenery as background, and of course landscape shots as well.
    I tried the big head shot as well, it was great =)

    as mentioned a lot on this thread, avoid the corners =)

    I ended up not using my 17-50 kekeke

    it's a Nikkor Lens.

    It really depends on the shooting style per individual i think.
    I have tried prime before, but it doesn't suit me, though I only tried 50 and 35mm.

    Thanks ZerooCool!

    For my next travel I would only Bring my 18-200 together with my UWA just incase I need some reach.

    i think the zebra shirt guy was slightly further away, because the plane is slightly more perpendicular to him

    For me i would perfer to get prime lens for landscape and portrait during traveling. Coz it is light weight and easy to bring around.
    What prime lens are you using for both landscape and portrait ? Or are you using a number of primes of different focal length? If so what is the widest one you are using?

    Yup now that you mention it, certainly looks that way.
    He looks more parallel somehow... hahaha optical illusion I suppose

    For uwa, get the tokina 11-16, you won't go wrong.
    For traveling, prime lens usually sit in my back. It is far far too troublesome to find a place to switch lens.

    During my recent trip, I snapped around 10-14 at the most, but it is handy to have the 17-24 range, still,
    anyway, it's still depends on your preference, I haven't use the Tokina, seen a lot of good reviews on it, but I'm happy with my Nikkor 10-24, I'm no pro as well =)

    Ya just use it for as long as you are happy to use it. No point shopping around for an 'equivalent' lens

    Tokina is a choice for it's cost ($400 ~ $500 cheaper) and its built. The F/2.8 is a bonus. But if u already have a nikkor, just stick to it.

    yep probably. anything that is far, even when placed at the edge, will look less distorted i guess...

    So your widest prime lens is the 30mm f/1.4, and you use that for shooting landscapes when travelling?
    Interesting...
    This is a 'DC' lens, so I presume you are using a camera with an APS-C sensor.

    as mentioned before i tried 35mm on my cropped body, I feel it to be tight, maybe because my preference as a shooter is really on the wild (wide) side =)
