Put it this way - I've done a few hundred r/e shoots and paid for all my gear several times over without a TS lens. I've never had a realtor complain or mention anything about excessive ceiling in my shots. So it's clearly not necessary unless you are shooting a lot of exteriors of tall-ish buildings. For interiors it's really just a convenience for the photographer, and you could probably get some marketing mileage out of saying you have a special tilt-shift perspective control lens. Still would be nice though.

Oh, i know i can keep using just a wide angle, and that probably 95% of all professional shot r/e images are not done with a t/s lens. But I'm interested in getting my photos as good as I possibly can. It's a little bit of an obsession. So i'm mainly just wondering if the t/s lens will make any difference, vs just using perspective correction in LR/PS.
