While it isn’t needed to correct every wide-angle photo, the Adaptive Wide Angle filter is a great way to improve the quality of your fisheye or very-wide-angle shots, with an efficiency and accuracy that were not previously possible in Photoshop. This filter is a great reason to upgrade to Photoshop CS6 for any photographer who likes to work with architecture or other subjects that may require a flattening of perspective.
