    rented a sigma 15mm f/2.8 fisheye from rentglass.com and took it out saturday night. lots of fun, not sure if it's something I would shoot a lot, but it'd be nice to have

    all shot with my rebel and cheapie film since the lab didn't get my 64t ordered in time.

    all pretty much straight from the camera, just auto levels..... and some were shot with colored flashes, so that would explain some of the odd colors

    I checked their site last night just out of luck and got the 400mm 5.6L :big grin: Not bad for $40 and no deposit. The local camera shop here wants a $4k deposit, and almost $100/day :noes:

    Why would a wedding photographer have them? Brides that want to be 400lbs?

    I've got a 70-200 from them right now. It came late but they refunded with no issues and right away at that. Excellent customer service but like you said its hard to catch the lenses in stock

    Awesome store! Thanks for the post. The local store charges that much just for a day's use.
