Wendy demoes the new lens!
I got my new toy last night -- the Nikon 20mm f/2.8 wide-angle lens. We're still sniffing each other and making friends, but Wendy was nice enough to let me shoot three photos of her over lunch today that give a pretty good idea of how different the world appears through each of these lenses.
Shot with my trusty Nikon D80 across the table, using ambient light and with no real attempt to do anything except point and shoot.

...THIS is my workhorse. I adore this lens. It has a giant light scoop on the end, what with that 1.8 f-stop madness, and it just takes gorgeous, gorgeous photos without me really needing to try all that hard. See my recent Matt Costa concert photos for proof.
I've been saying that I needed to practice landscape photography. The 20mm lens practically demands it.
(Thanks for humoring me, Wendy. The Very Pregnant™ typically don't allow photography.)
