The effective focal lengths for both components (camera lens and the used lens) are computed by using the following formula [10, 11].
Ultra wide-angle lenses of 20mm focal length or less bring more of the foreground into the overall field of view, resulting in a closer subject-to-camera distance for any subject that occupies this part of the image, such as a rock, lake or river edge, or gate post.
The extreme focal lengths are surprisingly good, although I wish the focusing was a bit faster, or maybe I am being overambitious.
