    My mother is staging houses so I need a lense for taking before/after shots of the rooms. I'm rocking cannon and need something reasonably cheap.

    take multiple pictures and stitch them together.

    it's free.

    you'd probably want to buy the cannon ball though, since you're rocking a cannon...

    A lense for a cannon, you say?

    Lolz I don't have time for stitching. Any ideas on specs I'd need?

    I use a Tokina 11-16 and am very often at 11mm. Your sensor is cropped even more than mine so I doubt you'd want anything longer than that.

    Not really, that requires a lot of time and skills.

    Easiest way would be to set the camera on Bulb setting and hold the camera in your hands in spin in the middle of the room.

    I like my 16-35L II. On my 40D it does rooms pretty well, but on a FF I bet its great. Also it has almost no barrel distortion.

    You need a wide angle lens.

    I have a sigma 10-20, and love it.

    But you are not going to find a decent wide angle cheap.

    10-22mm is your best bet.
