    It's not a question of "good or not". You use it to the degree that you want to create the effect you desire. When you look up at a tall building your brain compensates for the perspective but the camera records what it sees. When the photo is observed the building appears to be falling away from you because the upper parts of the building are recorded in the picture as being smaller.
    The amount of "correction" depends on the purpose of the photo.
    If you want an accurate rendition of the building then you want the vertical lines to be parallel and conversely you may be looking for an exaggeration of the effect for artistic purposes.

    Default Abandoned PC lens

    With the built in correction of 1.5x in the D100 and minimal use of persepctive correction in Photoshop, I've been able to abandon my PC lens, even on 18mm shots.
