    Hi

    I need a Canon EF wide angle lens. This is to take some photographs inside
    an apartment. I need it to be able to see the whole of the room, but without
    it looking like a fish eye view. Can anyone recommend a good lens for this?

    Thanks

    Hi

    Yes either. I should have said it's for a Canon 30D.

    Hi there,
    in my opinion it is the better way to take pictures with normal angle (50mm)
    and stitch them. When you use a wideangle you ever get pix looking like
    taken with a fisheye. A good software for stitching is Canon photostitch.

    Regards

    There are a number of filters available for Photoshop and other
    programs that will allow you to correct the distortion mentioned here.
    A fisheye lens generally requires some correction to get a usable
    photo, unless the desired effect is the fisheye look.
