How wide is wide?

What constitutes a “Wide” lens depends on whether you have a full-frame camera or a crop camera:

So on a full-frame camera a 24mm lens might be”wide” , while on a crop camera like a Digital Rebel or a D90 you would need a 15mm lens to get the same width.

You may want to keep this table in mind the next time you decide whether a lens is a wide-angle lens or not.
