Last year I purchased a lens kit that had a wide angle lens w/ macro. I never used it, but now am wondering what I could use it for? How will this affect people photography? The lens I have is a Merkury Optics 52mm 0.45x Wide Angle w/macro. It's possible that the answer will be to not use this for people photography...but I just gotta know! I did play around with it a little and take a picture of something with the lens, took it off and took the same picture with the same settings...the picture with the wide angle was brighter and not as sharp (possibly because of the brightness).
