I use an Olympus 7 _ 14 mm I bought it second hand a few years ago. But to buy new now would cost a small fortune. It still performs well at f22 and has very little barrel distortion even at 7mm
Thanks Peter, that's helpful.

Lovely photos. I was surprised to find that my Nikon 28mm lens only stopped down to F16, most disappointing. Out of interest which focal length did you tend to use for the photos you posted?

Here is a quirky fungi-in-the-landscape picture. I took it not far from the Foss Dyke flood control unit on River Ouse in York - it was just a short while after the recent floods. Everything was coated in mud, including this (presumably) Ganoderma on a riverside tree. It was not easy to spot!

Enjoying this thread, which has inspired me to attempt similar shots of fungi in the landscape.

Good!
Here is one I took closer to home - in fact just outside the back door in Sheffield :D
It's Milky Conecap, which used to be called Conocybe lactea - it's Conocybe apala now.
