Thanks, everyone! @dpollitt, 135mm is nice, but too pricey unfortunately, even a used one :(

comment The ideal prime lens combo in the bag for full frame
Thanks, ISO. I used to have 10-14mm (a DX lens) and I didn't like the distortion at all, especially when you put people in the picture, they all look weird. That's why I am afraid 24mm might be in the same category.

Thanks, Matt Grum. Good suggestion, I forgot to say that I also have an 18-200mm. And I am comfortable with 18mm. So 28mm would be great then I think. 85mm (55mm on DX), I am not so sure, I feel like I am gonna be wanting for more reach.

Thanks, mattdm. I forgot to say that I also have a 18-200mm. But I rarely use it due to its weight and when I do, I have always kept it at 18mm.

comment Is there a device to take product photos from different angles at the same time?
Nice diagram. Instead of doing the math, I am thinking I can simply use a thread/string anchored to the base of the glass, pull it straight to the camera and simply use that as a guide for where to position the camera. It won't be super precise but my math is just okay and a fancy support structure might not be wallet-friendly.

@clabacchio Using your method, how would you suggest positioning the camera on all the shooting points somewhat accurately? Because it's not a matter of increasing/decreasing the tripod height, it's an arc.

@dpollitt Yes, stop-motion, but in a very controlled fashion. Think 3D product photo.

@Flimzy, I assume you mean why can't you rotate the glass of water. Because it'll spill.

Thanks, I am using Nikon D90. I don't think point-and-shoot is gonna be good enough. This is a great idea, but way over my budget unfortunately.
