For those that do Real Estate what is your must have lens to take with as far as MM, F stop?
I am a real estate appraiser and I use a Samsung tablet on auto. Tablets take really good photos now and it is not necessary to use a high end camera.
What system do you have now? What is your budget? Are you a pro? If you are a pro, then price should not be a concern, as you can expense it. (see your tax preparer for details)
If Nikon, then view this:
Nikon D750, I haven't shot any Real Estate , right now Im just exploring the idea of getting into real estate photography, I have looked at that 14-24 but its still a bit out of my budget.
I have used a 10-20 Nikon with success but I'd agree the 14-24 lens is much better. I'd also suggest you become proficient in the use of HDR photography. With windows in most rooms, you will find a wide range of exposure values and HDR can help overcome that problem.
Right now I have the 18-35 and its a decent lens, When dealing with the larger names Like a Century 21, Do they hire the photographers or is it normally left up to the individual agent?
In my limited experience, I was hired by the individual real estate agents. Actually, there were 3 in the same office and the shared my fee.
With crop-sensor camera I use the 10-20mm(15-25 equiv) for documenting work inside but it does distort interiors for real estate sales shots. The 18-140 works well for putting together nice shots with just a little distortion and getting architectural features without being able to get close.
Separate names with a comma.
