Of coarse there is no simple answer. The answer depends on your budget and what kind of DSLR body you have. I use to have a real estate camera table that listed a number of choices for real estate cameras. But I discontinued it about a year ago because it had a bunch of point-and-shoot cameras on the list and I wanted to stop recommending any point and shoot cameras. I’ve decided to build a list of DSLRs and a list of wide-angle lenses. In keeping with my theory that your wide-angle glass is the most important piece of equipment a real estate photographer owns I’ve started to build a wide-angle lens table first.
Each lens has a link to check the price and I’d like to give the lens a rating link in the center column but I have to find way to give all the lenses in the list a rating. This may be a mixture of lens rating sites… haven’t decided yet. My goal is to bring together all the information one needs to know to make an intelligent decision on which wide-angle lens to buy.
