I believe I was the one who used the term perspective.  To me it seems clear that different focal length lenses can alter the perspective in an image.  It, therefore, seemed clear that plugin was wrong.  Intuitively I just knew plugin was wrong.  Unfortunately I am the one who was wrong and my intuitive understanding of the issue was wrong.  A little online research clearly shows that perspective does not vary with the focal length of the lens but the variation is due to the position of the camera in relation to the objects.

Certainly wide and ultrawide lenses are powerful tools, but they do not alter true perspective.
