Best Lenses for Real Estate

Looking for the best lenses for real estate photography and videography in 2021? Your search ends right here

These three best lenses for real estate have several advantages:

24-70mm

NIKON AF-S NIKKOR 24-70MM F/2.8E ED VR LENS

My personal opinion is that the 24-70mm is a fantastic lens. It covers a lot of ground and works for a lot of different shooting situations. You will never regret buying one of those lenses.

In general, the 24-105mm is a bit more versatile than the 24-70mm. It works well both outdoors and indoors. The 24-105mm offers a little more reach than the 24-70mm. It also allows for tighter compositions while working from a distance.

Almost all of the major camera brands make a 24-70mm version for their mount. Other companies like Tamron, Sigma, and Tokina manufacture versions for the other major mounts. Those may include Sony E mount, Canon EF, and the Nikon F mount.

Recommended buy:

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR Lens

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens

24-105mm

SONY FE 24-105MM F/4 G OSS LENS

This is a very versatile lens designed for Sony’s E mount system, which is also used by mirrorless cameras.

A number of Sony cameras with the aperture of f/4 can be used with this lens, and the camera also features a built-in image stabilizer that allows you to take steady pictures even with hand-held exposure. 

Some real estate agents and or real estate photographers don’t take it upon themselves to always carry a tripod.

When you’re facing challenges of hand-held shooting, the built-in Sony OSS (Optical Stabilization System) is a great help.

Recommended buy:

Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS Lens

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM

14-24mm

SIGMA 14-24MM F/2.8 DG DN ART LENS

In tight spaces, such as in bathrooms, kitchens, and attics, you will need a lens that can operate between 14mm and 24mm. These places leave you with a small amount of space to maneuver or take a good picture.

Although there are even wider lenses, I would recommend that you do not use them as they make the horizon of normal imagery tangent to the realm of fish-eye lenses.

You don’t need a fish-eye lens for real estate, as the rounded effect is not appropriate for this purpose. Fourteen to twenty-four millimeters works too. 

Recommended buy:

Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG DN Art Lens for Sony E

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED


Property images are the first lead magnet you have at your disposal. By pairing a great cameras with the right lens, you can make every project a success.
