16mm vs 18mm for WA photography ?

Hi,

I am planning to get a DS and would like to know whether there is a significant FOV difference at those focal lengths (I am considering the kit lens or the 16-45).

I am interested in taking WA photos in which the subject´s foreground and close surroundings are brought into the pic. That would apply to landscapes, urban scenes and portraits. I do not have any WA experience and have tried to look at pbase pics but with all the different formats (film, FF, 1.5x, 1.6x) it is hard to get an idea. So I would appreciate if anyone could comment on this.

Thanks,

Noel
