Yeah, for now let's just say that there's no budget. But what's the best (In your opinion of course) for interior photography.

I think that would all depend on what type of interior you're talking about, what lighting if any you plan on using, even the size of the room you plan on shooting in and especially what camera you're using.
I find for shooing around the house (dogs, grandkids, stuff) that my 24-70 f/2.8 L is an excellent lens on both my FF & crop cameras. If I'm using a flash that may also include the 17-40 L and the 28-135 IS but all around, the 24-70 is the better.

I just switched to an 85mm F1.8 as my indoor default from my 24-105 F4. Having the more shallow depth of field, in my opinion provides a much more pleasing result. This is however at full frame. If I was using a crop body I'd go for a 50mm prime.

When you say "interior photography", you have to be more specific in respect to the intended subject matter. Architectural vs candid people images are quite different which require different potential solutions.

When you say indoor do you mean a subject that is indoors or do you mean taking a picture of the interior of a building? If you are asking about a subject, do elaborate on what the subject is.

I was recenly shooting some xmas tree photos and found my 24-70 a little too long with my 1.6 crop camera. It works pretty well on my FF 5D and 1.3 crop 1D bodies. On the other hand, my 11-16 is way too short. I think a 17-40 would be a great range for smaller rooms.
