Who here rolls their own textures from photos?

What gear are you using. What tips can you share?

I've made my own textures from interesting surfaces I've spotted in my day to day travels that I captured with my cellphone camera, which is okay for background stuff and other non-important assets but the limitations really show up on primary focus assets. I've bought a DSLR to be able to capture better, higher resolution images but I'm wondering what lenses I should invest in. What's the best focal length for capturing images to use as tiled texture maps?
