Hello,

I am hoping someone can help me decide between the Tokina 16-28 and the canon 17-40. (I have a Canon 6D). I will primarily be using this lens for real estate photography. I've done some research but I'm not super clear on a few things, 1. Do I NEED a fisheye to create virtual tours? Will either of these lenses work for standard interior shots AND to create a 360 virtual tour? Or do I need two different lenses? I understand that to create a 360 degree view will require multiple images stitched together. I am able to obtain either of these lenses used at a great price and that is why these are contenders on my list. Thanks in advance for your help. And I appreciate any other suggestions or tips.

i went with the Tokina and have been very happy. Most RE shooters agree that anything less than 20mm on FF can get into the area of deceiving the customer about the size of the space. The 16-28 has essentially zero distortion between 22 and 28 and only very minimal distortion at 20.

only issue is the cost of adding filters to the lens, but that is a non issue for most of what I do with it.

oh yeah, the 360 thing is a matter of what kind of software you use, but fisheye lenses are typically not what you want.

Thank you!

I ended up going with the Tokina. Could you recommend a software to create the virtual tours?

Did you mean it's not a good idea to shoot RE interiors with less than 20mm on a fullframe?
