The explanation is bit over my head, but I think I've drawn some conclusions from it.

So you can get some fairly wide angle lens that are not fisheye. So the focal length, doesn't always depict the angle of view. I just assumed that a 10mm would be ultra wide anda fisheye as a result of the the wide angle.

Thanks

Silver Lake by the Twilights Last Gleaming

K20D ISO 200 in D-range 58Sec DA* 16-50mm @ 16mm & f8.

This lake is only about 5 blocks from my house. The hardest part of taking this photo was fending off the mosquitoes and the occasional group of brain damage teenagers. Not much differents between the two.

Love the color in yours Daz! That's an awesome shot!

BK - a nice picture, appropriate for hot August days. It always takes a while to sort out a new camera, and I never quite finish it. It seems like I get to a point that I'm reasonably happy with and never quite go beyond to the rest of the settings.

Tom, beautiful sunflowers. Nice use of max dof!

Daz, cool colors! Nice scene.

BK, definitely a lazy afternoon. Looks like you're getting the K20 sorted just fine.
