Need help re architectural/interiors shooting

I may be doing some work for my wife who is an architectural/interior designer. Will be mostly interiors, some exteriors. I have a K10D and a DS and my thought is to get a tilt/shift lens if I can find one and not have to mortgage the house to pay for it. So far, the only one that I can find is the Hartblei which does not appear to be the appropriate focal length for this type of work. I have pretty much given up film and really don't want to think about getting another camera for this.

Hearing about anyone else's approach to this type of work or suggestions regarding lenses woul be appreciated.

Depending upon what you need in total, why not try an ultra wide (I use sigma 10-20) and then correct for perspective with your choice of editor. I use coral paint shop pro which has perspective correction, and it works for many things.

Go out and play a little before you spend

I was going to suggest the same thing, but using the Pentax 12-24mm. I haven't tried the lens so I can't give any feedback on the lens.

I have done exactly that with a Sigma 18-50/2.8 and PaintShopPro X (I have used CS2 to adjust it as well, but I find PSPX easier...) and I think it works resonably well.
You just have to plan for the correction when framing your shot as there will be some cropping involved.

I have found that good editing software can make up for a lot of unavaible for Pentax mount lenses.
