A friend of mine ask me to take some pics of his house, inside and out, my question is I only have a canon 24-85 lens, but would it be better to use my son`s kit lens {17-55}? I aso have a Sigma 105-2.8 macro that i`m not comfortable with at all, at this time I can`t make a desent pic.
Thanks for any help.
George

What body will you be shooting with? If you're shooting interior shots, you're definitely going to want to use a wide/super side lens. A 17-55 will be decent if you're shooting Full Frame (I'm not pro enough to know if that lens will even work on a full-frame body.)

Tokina makes a 11-16 which is a superb lens. Might want to find a nice location to rent one and try it out. (The Tokina will not work on a Full Frame body camera.)

kit lens is 18-55 though, you may want to check that. 17-55 is about 10x more expansive than 18-55.

In any case. Usually, if you can use a kit lens 18-55 or 17-55, your body is crop, so i think around those wide angle would give you some good versatile shots.

the long end doesn't do you much good unless you want to take something specific. So i'd say if you can get the wider one, go for it. 24 to me is still a little too long. =)

What type of camera do you have?

I would use the kit 18-55 for this purpose. Seems like you don't need to buy $5000 worth of gear to shoot your friend's house. So just use whatever u have, and 18-55 should be wide enough to take indoor pictures.
