Here are a couple of catches with the 7-14 from yesterday's little hike close to home. Would you have been able to tell that either of these are UWA shots if I hadn't let you know? And as you can see from the second shot, even the 7-14 can be pretty well behaved with regard to flare under the right circumstances.

The open oak fields ...

So I looked at this again and a question came to mind. In this scene you could easily use the 12-40 and backup a bit to get the same framing. What is the choice there? Lets say I was shooting a bird in a tree so I had my 50-200 on and now I want to shoot this scene. What do I consider in deciding between putting the 12-40 on vs the 7-14?

Move around for composition and perspective.  Choose lens focal length for framing and aperture for depth of field.

Is that what you're asking?
