Hi,
I want to know what is the difference between Tele lense and wide lense.
Are there photos for example ?

Thanks,
Eti

In novice terms, if you have a zoom lens (on a camcorder, still camera, what have you...) you can see right now what the difference is. Zoom your lens all the way in on a subject and set your focus on that. You'll see the difference in depth of field, compression of the image and your general field of view of the background. Now zoom all the way out and physically move in so your subject is the same proportion to the frame that it was when you zoomed in, and notice how everything behind it is now in focus and you have a much wider field of view.

Only difference is "Telephoto" and "Wide Angle" lenses are usually stated as lenses with fixed focal length and do not zoom.
