using DSLR? 28mm (after taking into account the crop factor) could be considered wide while ultrawides are usually below 20mm.

At least, that's what Canon kind of categorized:

Ultrawides might be hard to handle at first cos of the wide angle of view and the closeness to subjects which increases perspective distortion (e.g. faces could become very distorted). Might be easier to start with 28mm equivalent wide angles. Goods ones like Canon 17-40F4L (27-64mm equivalent) could last u a long time. Low cost alternative like the kit lens EF-S 18-55 is actually pretty good too.
