Re: Architectural/interior shots which camera and lens?

As Mark has said, a tilt-and-shift lens is the best if you can run to that. This lens will help to minimise converging verticals which are always strongly accentuated with standard lenses when taking shots of tall buildings, internals of cathedrals and the like.

If you don't want to spend quite as much, you'd be best getting a good quality wide-angle lens and maybe reducing the CVs later in PS.

Cheers,
Rob

Re: Architectural/interior shots which camera and lens?

I shoot this type of photography full time. I use the canon 10-22 lens on a 30d and it works great (I believe it will fit the 5d). If you want perfect pictures you will have to do some editing in photoshop later, but even the raw image looks great. It'll run ~$600 versus $1200 - $2500.

Hope that helps.
Matt

Re: Architectural/interior shots which camera and lens?

Is there an similiar lens to the Canon 10-22 for a Nikon user? Does the Tokina 16-22 come close in quality?
Thanks

Check out the Sigma 10-20. It is a great lens.

Alternatively, if you have deep pockets

Nikon UK - Products - Catalogue - NIKKOR Lenses - Perspective Control

the 24mm looks like it will do the job.

Re: Architectural/interior shots which camera and lens?

Well to tell you the truth here are the two lenses I am looking at saving up to purchase:

Sigma 10-20
Tokina 11-16

The Tokina is f2.8 which is my perference as it will be better for shooting events than the Sigma for low light, but the Sigma is cheaper and easier to get a copy. The Tokina has a long wait list (the difference between 10 and 11 I don't worry about)

I would pass on the Nikkor 12-24 as I have a DX and not a FX body and it is more expensive than the above two.

The PC lens will be a hobby lens at best for me so I am not I will be getting that anytime soon. I think I would hire for one if I want to play with it.

It is an EFS so will not fit 5D

I have both of these lenses and you will not go wrong with either if you get a good copy. However there is no doubt in my mind that the Tokina is the better choice unless you want the 16-20 range to avoid lens swapping.
