Hi, welcome to this forum, hope you have fun here!
Got myself a second-hand Arsat 35mm shift lens....quite good for architecture....although I'd like a shorter focal length for a shift lens....

Welcome to the forums. You might want to consider the Sigma 10-20mm or the Pentax 12-24mm. Both with less distortion than the fisheye zoom. If you like, share some photos with everyone in the weekly POTW.

Welcome. I can highly recommend the Sigma 10-20mm/4-5.6 wideangle rectilinear lens for architectural photography. The 15mm LTD by Pentax is also a popular choice. See this thread:
