Default Lens for product shots

Hello, I need the best lens for product shots for my Niko D90 to give minimal distortion (parallel sides etc). Similar to the bottle image attached.

One of Nikon PC-E lenses like the pc-e 45mm will do what you want.

They are also available as 24mm and 85mm versions, the lenses run just under 2k$ each.
You need to check camera compatibility, they may operate in full manual mode only on many Nikon bodies.

For Canon shooters the equivalent are the TS-E lenses available in 17mm, 24mm, 45mm and 90mm versions.

There are also options from Schneider and Horseman but the costs get very high.

The lest expensive option is to carefully align the camera and subject so everything is exactly centered, parallel and vertical,
then use a low distortion flat field lens like a 60mm or 100m macro lens.
