Re: Telephoto compression is a myth - why is this fallacy so widespread?

Both telephoto compression and wide-angle distortion are perspective distortions that are caused by differences in the perspective between (i) viewing the image and (ii) viewing the original scene.

Very clear and straightforward argument, thanks!
