Im looking for a good lens rental place, there was one listed here but i emailed em about two weeks ago and they havent got back, and I dont wanna rent a lens and not have it shipped in time, so if they cant find time to reply to an email, they are too busy for me.

any suggestions?
thanks!

www.lensrentals.com (http://www.lensrentals.com) Great people, never had a problem with them and I've dropped a good 1K in rentals with them. I always deal with Roger, I believe he's the owner, give them a try.

that would rock Patrick, thanks, but I would NEVER borrow someone elses gear like that, id rather rent it from a place so its insured, ya know? Just in caes, its a really generous offer though, thanks much!

Craig,
Is the place you emailed Rentcameragear.com? I always go through them and he's been fast to respond to my emails and has always gone the extra mile to get a lens to me when I needed it by a certain date. He could possibly be away.

hey I've droped. it... the only thing you'd have to do is send it back to canon and have them fix it....

Lens rental? Go to Simmonds in East Hartford. They have more than Lenses to rent as well.

We just rented 2 Quantum packs for our flashes last weekend. $20 a day!!!

Wow Justin... a local rental place huh? I would LOVE to have that around here... there are quite a few lenses I would rent for a week just to try out and see how they work...

Like I said, thank GOD they rent other things like the Quantum box. If I just tried shooting with regular AA NiMH batteries this weekend I would have been toast.

yes Ryan, it was...lol well i sent another email yesterday and i think he is away because on his site in the forums, he has posted an update from 9/07 so ...lol

Patrick, thanks again but Id feel better renting from a rental place... I really hate to inconvience others by borrowing stuff, if anything happened to it, id hate myself. with a company, you just send it it back and they have insurance.

Check out http://www.tryandbuylens.com (http://www.tryandbuylens.com/)
They are located in Cromwell, CT.
Prices are demn good compared to local rental stores. I think they also can arrange pick up instead of shipping.
Good Luck!

I went ahead and earmarked all the tilt-shift lenses so I can see when they are available... I am really interested in trying out the 24TS-E for shooting IR on old buildings...

I used www.borrowlenses.com when I rented my 18-55 F/2.8 lens. Ended up costing around $85 or so... GREAT company to deal with!!
