18-135 kit lens-- If I upgrade to 16-85 will I notice much difference on distortion?
Jun 8, 2010

I have the 18-135 kit lens, the 70-300 vr and a 60 macro. My only real complaint with the 18-135 is that people and objects often look like they are tipping over at the wider settings. I was thinking of upgrading that lens to a 16-85 for a trip to Yosemite later this month. I do mainly willdlife and macros, but would use this range for the ocasional people shot and the wide angle landscape (of which, I expect to see a lot in Yosemite). Will I notice much difference on a 16-85 or perhaps the 17-70 as far as the distortion on the wider angle shots? I also considered a wide angle zoom, but that is another lens to keep track of? Maybe I just need other software that corrects for the distortion? What is your experience? Thank you.
