thanks for posting these, I was most interested in seeing the 25mm and 45mm perspective and wow, even bigger difference that I thought!  The age old rule is that a 50mm equivalent (your 25mm image) lens is bad for head shots and it obviously shows.  Your 45mm picture finally doesn't show that distortion and going up from there doesn't change things too much.

You are welcome, and I'm glad they've been helpful!
