Is it a wide angle lens

asked on March 4, 2013

Showing 1-6 of 6 answers

I've always considered lenses of less than 35 mm "wide-angle". It's a matter of degree, but I would consider 28mm a wide angle lens. Since around 50mm is "standard" focal length, it is quite a bit wider than that.

Short answer is no. It's a standard 28mm lens.
22mm-24mm are usually designated wide angle.
Usually you have to give up some zoom or other things when you when you get to extremes (wide angle)… see more

as no lens (variable zoom) can do everything. see less

The standard lens zooms from a fairly wide field of vision to a moderate zoom. You can buy an accessory which adds to the zoom, but I don't think anything can be bought to expand the field of vision. I hope this is helpful

No, but I believe there is a wide angle "mode" in the options. That said, it's really not the same thing as a wide angle lens.

The other two answers are correct. The answer is no.
