Sorry, couldn't resist. Bestbuy lists the new 24mm lens twice as a 2.4mm.  Now THATS wide angle.

And these are the people selling most electronics to American consumers...

I knew the people working in the stores were pretty much clueless (no offense intended to anyone working at BB, but most people aren't well-informed about the items they are selling), but this is a new low.

And at f/1.4, it must be HUGE!

(I'm actually surprised it doesn't say f/.14!)
