I really don't like what his wideangle lenses are doing to people.
They either have giant feet or heads like footballs. 

Besides, with the 28, he's got to almost crawl inside the President's
jacket, to get close enough. That's can't be good if you are trying to 
an intimate moment. If I were him I would stick to a 50, maybe a 35, and only
go really wide if I was up against the wall.
