    What rental sites does otap suggest?

    I'm headed to barbados a couple of weeks and i'm thinking about renting a nice zoom lens to go with my usual lenses.

    I've used www.rentglass.com and www.lensrentals.com ......both were great. Then I found my local camera store rents lenses, and it ended up being about half the cost (because of shipping).

    lensloaners should be first choice if you're using Canon, borrow lenses is also great.

    yeah, i'm all canon so that isn't a problem.

    i'll have to check them out.. i called around to a few local places.. unique is actually real close but they don't rent lenses.

    I was going to buy my Sigma 120-400mm lens from Lensretals.com. We had a few conversations through email and they seemed really cool and nice, however they sold out of the lens :(

    Why hasn't a compiled thread been put together and stickied for this? It seems we get this question several times a month.

    I'd do it, but as a hypocrite would, I can't right now.
