I guess that makes me a goofball like you! Ha!

An Elph 500 HS-sized camera with a full-frame-fisheye to, say, 200mm zoom would be awesome!

Lee Jay,

I guess you can welcome me to the goofball club. Some of my favorite images taken on my full frame Canon dSLR are with the lower end of my Sigma 12mm-24mm. It never ceases to amaze me.

It has been noticed that the longer a photographer sticks at the pastime of photography, the more that photographer will appreciate the compositional power of wide angle lenses, and the wider the lenses he will tend to use in order to access that power.
