I have a question and wanted to gain some insight from architectural shooters that might have contemplated the same thing or have direct experience. Before I ask the question, a little background...
I have a long history in photography and have shot everything possible from landscapes to fine art, from automobiles to food. I currently own two (really 2 1/2) systems, an extensive Canon system, including 1Dx with lenses from 14mm through 600mm (including 17mm TS-E and 24mm TS-E II). I also have a Phase One 645DF+ with a Credo 60 and an 80mm LS and 110mm LS. I also have an RZ67ProIID with a few lenses including the 75mm shift lens (that's the 1/2...LOL).
I primarily shoot people commercially, thousands of pictures weekly. To do that I use either the 1Dx with the 70-200mm f2.8 II or 85mm f1.2 OR the Phase One 645 DF+ with the 110mm LS. I will routinely sync the PO system and 110mm LS at 1/1600s with the Profoto Air system to shoot f2.8 in the sun.
A small part of my business (5-10%) is comprised of architectural interiors. Historically I have used the Canon system with either the 14mm f2.8, 17mm TS-E, or 24mm TS-E. I am very interested in a tech cam arrangement, something like the Cambo WRS system, and would have bought in already, but the lens cost was quite literally, shocking. Still considering it though. My belief, is that the tech cam solution is the pinnacle of performance for architectural captures. If my biz had more architectural work, it would have been a foregone conclusion. But, ROI is a tough one when the architectural work quantity/income is not nearly on par with the quantity/income from the people work.
My goal, of course is to obtain the best quality capture for the architectural interior work, given the equipment I own, or through selective new purchase(s) that broaden my capabilities and make financial sense. Why not put the Credo 60 into play with the architectural work? Right?
So, while I contemplate the high cost of entry of a tech cam purchase, another thought came into my mind. What about the Phase One 28mm (non-LS) lens? How will the results of that compare to using the 14mm or 17mm or 24mmTS-E II on the 1Dx?
Thanks in advance,
