I was going to ask, since you have zooms covering the 16-200 range, why you needed comparisons, when you could just look and see? But I look again and read that you're also interested in FL's shorter than the ranges of the zooms you have. And yes, it *is* handy to have all the views available at a glance.

Just be aware that at the wide end, Your Mileage May Vary, as they say. Below 20mm, there are various ways of rendering a projection. Some ultrawide lenses are quite distorted around the edges. Some are quite rectilinear -- and also tend to be rather expensive. Your usable view may depend on how much you spend on a lens. Just because a lensmaker claims, for example, that their 12mm glass has a 100 degree AOV, doesn't mean that the edges are worth a damn. Keep that in mind when you're comparing wide views and thinking about lenses that might deliver those views. Good luck!

Thanks Jeff for the link thats the other site im looking for after i format my PC.

I actually did that before RioRico. im very interested from the 10-12-15-16 range. I saw a thread in here maybe it was on the marketplace the difference from 12-16 was pretty huge.
