I do a lot of shots for work (interior design). We use a Pentax KR, which we like, but because of the size limitations of some rooms, it's hard to get a decent photo of them displaying how the room actually feels.
At the moment we use the standard 18-55mm lens that came with the camera. What is a wider lens that we could use? We're looking for somthing that doesn't distort the image at all.
If you could give me a couple of recomendations that would be great. Also what sort of money should I be expecting to pay? I dont really need anything super fancy, really just a wider version of the standard Pentax lens would do.
I'm pretty new to lenses so I just had a couple of general questions about wide angles:
- how much wider can a lens go before it will begin to distort (like a fish eye)?
- also what sets apart a normal lens from a high end lens in terms of quality? Is it visable to the average user? Most of our shots go online and are compressed to save space so in that enviroment, I would not think it's super important to have a tip top lens.
