I've thought about something wider, but here in claustrophobic Florida where everything's flat and there are not many vistas, and not getting to those places much, the 24mm equivalent width works perfectly. All of the primes may get rented if I take a trip like I did to Colorado or Maine. Indeed the one that might happen in May to the Northwest and Canada may require the wider angle!

Yes, lots of reasons for UW up here! But it's often not enough - here is a 360deg pano from a little peak about an hour from us (although it took us tries to reach the summit). Taken with a Canon A530 P&S.
