Not long ago, we penned an opinion that every photo geek should own a wide-angle lens. In case you missed it, we heralded the incredible ability of wide-angle lenses to present a vision of the world that just can’t be captured by a standard or telephoto lens.

Should you add this beautiful chunk of glass to your camera bag? Let’s find out.
