    hi

    i have film SLR, Nikon N65
    but i might upgrade to DSLR later.
    but for now, i want a wide angle lens compatible for the N65.
    and it would be better if this lens would be compatible with most DSLR i buy in the future.

    i read about wide angle lens at wikipedia:

    "Common wide-angle lenses for a full-frame 35 mm camera are 35, 28, 24, 21, 18 and 14 mm. Many of the lenses in this range will produce a more or less rectilinear image at the film plane"

    im confused and i dont know which one of those numbered mm lenses i should buy
    and i dont know what 0.5x wide angle lens and 0.45x wide angle lens are.
    the kind of photos i would like to take are these:

    thank you
