Interior Photography Which lens?

Hi
I have a Canon 50mm F1.4 and Canon 70-200mm F4 and Tamron 24-70mm F4 and shooting with a Full Frame Canon 6D. I'm looking at getting something wider for interior photography, what would you recommend? Very top end would be out of my budget and I don't want to be looking at replacing a bottom end lens too soon, so middle range price wise, or a bit more if it's an absolute must. I thought 16-35mm or 17-40mm would be about right, but not enough experience with them to know?

    Tilt-shift lenses are where you want to be. But short of that, I wouldn't hesitate to use a 17-40, which could be had used for about $600. If you keep that lens with its barrel parallel with the ground, it's fabulous. Corners are somewhat soft, but at this price, you really can't expect better.

    I dont do much interiors but I have a Sigma 10-20 which works well. Also, it is a little soft on the corners so f11 or better seems to help and then a little crop and perspective control on PS3

    I owned the Sigma 10-20mm, awesome lens - recently upgraded to the f/4 17-40mm slightly sharper than the Sigma and pretty darn sharp @ f/7 onwards for a zoom lens IMO. If you're mostly shooting with a wide angle, I'd go the 16-35mm it's almost twice as much, but it's faster and sharper and just so nice...

    This is definitely an old post, but I'd also recommend the Sigma 10-20mm! The distortion isn't anything that's so bad it can't be handled in post.

    I also don't do much interior photography, but I must agree with the Sigma 10-20mm or try surfing FixThePhoto website, there are nice articles with useful tips about that)Hope it'll help

    Lots of recommendations for the 10-20mm which isn't a full frame lens so won't fit on the Canon 6D... I'm sure the OP has found a solution by now though!
