is not it's field of view.

At 24mm equivalent FF FOV, it's wide enought to be a very good street/candid lens, and a good interior travel lens.

The big deal about this lens is the DOF scale that allows you to set the hyperfocal distance and the ability to zone focus.

Why would you want to use hyperfocal distance?

And why would you want to zone focus on a lens capable of fast AF?

So, it you want something really wide, that isn't this len's strong suit.
