    Thanks for the links.

    Do most places you've dealt with usually include all in the price, including shipping to/from? I am looking to rent a 70-200 L f2.8 IS USM, and found one site for $100. That includes a week rental with insurance, and covers shipping to and from.

    Just want to make sure there aren't any hidden costs, or wondering how much of a PITA this could be.
