Re: Picked up the E-Mount touit 12mm and 32mm lens combo today, but act fast if you want it.

Can someone talk 12mm to me? This is 18mm in 35mm speak, which is much wider than I've ever shot with. I'm trying to understand how useful that is in everyday shooting.

It completely depends on what you shoot and how you shoot it. For me, that focal length is pretty much confined to starscapes and aurora. A lot of that is a lack of skill in my part, but a 12mm has limited use for me.

Most of my landscapes are done between 35mm and 100mm (FF equivalent of 50-150mm). Others live and breathe wide and ultra wide.
