Depends on what you are trying to shoot. You want to shoot people? or shoot the room wide? or shoot product in the wine cellar?

So you want to see both the room and the people?

A UWA lens will come in handy. The Tokina 11-16/2.8 comes to mind. Other lenses include Canon 10-22 or sigma 10-20.

Use your 18-200 and use a flash. Settled.
+1 only way to go if u are limited to only these 2 lenses. If the wine cellar is not very big, and 18mm is not wide enough, then just have to suck thumb and make do

Depends lah both lens also can, but if you want to focus on the wine bottle, etc aesthetic feel type use the 1.8.
Flash would destroy the ambience! Thats why I practice qi gong technique for steady hands. Must shoot in full manual
the camera is idiot otherwise will underexpose.

I dont know up to the shooter. If you want see my extreme low light I can show you some newer I took, but you must know how to set lah...
Below is a sample I took at Clarke Quay few yrs back. Crappy work looking back but sample only...

Using flash will destroy the ambience only if you do it wrongly. I find that using flash is the better way to go if you only have limited lens choice.

Personal preference lah, up to the user what he wants to achieve. I like flash too but as strobes in evening/night shoots. I know some couple wanted to take candlelight anbience then the photog BOOM flash, spoil the pic. They wanted a refund... :nono:

If you point at correct position , set the correct output , diffuse it enough , u can get really soft and nice lighting if its really verydark


Can also use tripod ma , not necessary flash .
