Re: Best lens for architectural photography
In reply to Steviezj, Jan 5, 2013

I used to have the old Sigma 12-24 lens.  I understand the newer model is better but I moved to EPS-C cameras and now use the Sigma 8-16 lens.

My main, amateur, use for this is for cathedral interiors.  After lengthy experimentation in setting nodal points on a sliding mount, I take two sets of landscape images, the first with the camera horizontal and the second tilted up by 30degrees.  Each set comprises three exposures for HDR.  The two sets are merged in Photoshop, either CS3 or CS5 and sometimes both.

I am pleased with the results.  I see no reason why the new Sigma would not be very good on full frame
