Next time you are on top of mountain and see a glorious view around you, you will probably take out your 7-14 and take a shot. But what I, at least, tend to find is that the 7-14 by compressing that entire view into a 4:3 frame somehow can not match the beauty of an incredibly wide vista.

In that situation are you suggesting I use 12mm? May do a panorama, instead?

No ides really. Havent worked it out myself. A panorama seems to be the right sort of idea.

Try changing the aspect ratio to 16:9 and shooting at 7mm!

This is one of my favorite things to do with the 7-14mm, because the wider frame, really takes advantage of that 114 degree field of view. Somehow, the vertical distortion of a 4:3 frame is more disconcerting than the shorter, wider 16:9 frame. I like doing "portrait" mode shots that way, too.
