    why do p+s have such a wide angle ?

    18mm on my d80 (1.5x) isn't wide enough for me.

    because they have very very tiny sensors, it would be different for most i guess.

    you will normally see something like this in the manual. (completely made up numbers)

    2.2 - 12mm (22 - 132mm equiv.)
