I think the natural human being sees at about 35mm ( on a 35mm). But that is sort our field of vision.

However when we look at something, we tune out the peripherals and zoom in on our subject matter or what caught our attention.

So if we are overlooking a valley we have sort of a panoramic view but when something catches our eye we zoom.

In martial arts there is a state in which you look and see everything ( an opponent or opponents) and look at nothing. That's a pretty wide angle. If we were to look at something, our attention would be directed there and we could be caught off guard.

In photography we are constantly zooming in and finding our subject matter, so we have a pretty cool zoom lens with a low f stop.

That's my take.
