    Perspective of Lens

    I am new to camera. I am not sure about perspective of lens.
    Is the perspective of image taken from camera with18mm lens the same as image taken from camera with 18-200mm lens when I set camera with 18-200mm to 18mm focal length? please help me to answer this question, thanks so much

    That's quite true - but it does change as the position of the camera changes.

    Have a guess :)

    I think "Field of View" might be a better term to use?

    Probably tied to what Glenn is hinting at is the fact that perspective distortion doesn't change with focal length - but - it allows you to assume a different camera to subject distance and THAT is what changes the perspective.
