Who is good and who should I stay away from???
lensloaners.com rents canon stuff and is owned be a fellow OT'er. Real good place. Currently have a 70-200 F/4 out from him.
local > online
but if you don't have a pro store nearby
Thankfully the place I work at lets me rent out lenses, I borrowed a Tamron 17-50 for last night...
$50 a week
$30 a week for the f/4
$50 a week for the f/4 IS.
and you notice also that it is the IS version right. All the other major renters want about 50 bucks for the NON-IS version. plus OTers get a 20% off discout I believe. So for 40 bucks plus 20 for shipping both ways. 60 bucks to rent the lens is actually a very good deal. You have never rented before I see. My local store rapes people for 75 bucks for 3 days
thanks dude i appreciate it
I can also speak for lensrentals.com and borrowlenses.com
I may try mikes out next time though
Do you think $50/week is expesnive? My local shop charges that by day.
We need a sticky or information about online lens rentals for this forum...this question comes up weekly.
I needed a 70-200 f/2.8 IS for the weekend. All the online places were out of stock and I wasn't sure if using their online reservation system would get it here by Thursday (Ohio).
Lensrentals.com was highly recommended over at POTN, and Roger emailed me back within hours and promised to overnight me a lens Wednesday so I'd have it Thursday for the shoot.
The price for the rental initially seemed higher but the difference at checkout was within 10% of anyone else, plus I could tell the customer service was going to be perfect.
I've gone back to them time and time again simply because of their customer service and willingness to go the extra distance.
With that said, I'm tempted to give our fellow OT one a shot when I need a lens in the future.
or if you have a local pro store, but they don't carry hardly anything for rent
I don't understand how your 50L and 85L are so cheap
