Ok, let me elaborate. I believe that because of the nature of wideangle 
lenses it is
more difficult to take a shot of a person, without distortion etc., 
than with
a more normal lens. Of course sometimes that's exactly the effect you 

I find that a lot of wide angle shots lack focus. People tend to cram 
too much
in to the frame and the shotstend to 'fish' or shooter fall prey to the 
effect, which becomes tiring after a while. Of course that doesn't mean 
it can't done.

My two cents.
