    Have a graduation coming up and I was thinking of renting a telephoto lens for the event (maybe a 70-200 f/4 L IS)

    If it's an indoor grad you're shooting you'll probably want the 2.8 to stop the motion so their limbs aren't blurry. Unless the light is good though.

    Shot my brother's grad at UMD this week and 2.8 was just enough to freeze him on stage.

    If lensloaners can't get you it, I've used www.lensrentals.com numerous times and they're great. I will be going to our OTAP brethren next time to check it out :)

    the only reason I go with lensrentals is because it is about 2 mins from my house, their customer service rocks too :bowdown: from my experience a month or so ago..

    I use Lens Rentals. I'd use Lensloaners, but no Nikon glass :(
