Thanks for the iamges!

A question:
'Why are (most) all of them shot with wide angle and very close to the subject?

If this really is a "photography"-blog, of course you would know that a much better view of any item is aquired by backing a bit away and then (if necessary) zooming in a bit, thus showing proportions of said item much more realisticly.

Now, most of these pictures of the lens looks a bit like how many people, and even businesses, shoot their cars they want to sell:
Very close and using too much wide angle, thus making the car look just awful, w big front and rest of the car just too small...
All simply because shooting without any thought whatsoever about perspective.

Understandable done by an amateur Selling his items on the net, but for a photo-blog: not soo good...

Sorry if I am rough, just wanted to see images of the 12-40/2,8 that looked more like it would look if I held it in my hand myself.

And I don´t Always spell English perfectly well, I discovered after posting, sorry...
Excused only by me having written the post too quickly, and by the fact I´m not having English as my native language.
