What's the best lens for product photography?

I have a client that needs some table top product shots done for a catalogue he is putting out and has asked if I would do them. I would hate to say "No" to him but not sure I have a lens suitable for this application. I'm shooting a 5D, and I think the best suitable lens I have is a Tamron SP AF28-75/2.8XR Di, but not sure is this is adequate. Obviously, detail and clarity is important. What do you recommend?
