    Vuk,

    Nice, though I'm curious just how well aligned the finder is with the 21mm lens. It needs to be bang on to avoid converging verticals, unless that's what you're after.

    About the other lens... I've never tried a super onion so I don't know.

    Joe,

    Please explain . . . exactly what are converging verticals ? TBH they have always baffled me.

    Would this knowledge be handy if I was photographing SS's in NYC ?

    Artioneer,
    Excuse the terrible images -- I used a crap flatbed to scan my slides back then -- but below are a few examples of converging verticals, something that's more correctly called keystoning. (See http://photonotes.org/cgi-bin/entry.pl?id=Convergingverticals for a definition.)

    Well, ultrawides and panoramic cameras seem to be the tools of choice for photographing skyscrapers in NYC...
