  1. Thanks Tim, it is still hard to me to understand this clearly, and how to decide which picture or position is the winner one..

  2. Great video Tim, is always a pleasure to watch your tutorials. I had no idea, that the differences are so big, I’m glad I learned a new thing. Thanks!

  3. Thanks Tim,
    You have added some new perspective to my future images.

    Now we just have to answer the age old question, “Do women prefer men with longer lenses?”
    It seems you have proven it’s not about the length but more about how you use it. :^)

  4. I have to admit that I have never tried the same shot with different lenses, I am now going have to play with them.

    Thanks Tim
