My best friend Pete got married this past weekend and he honored me by asking me to be his wedding photographer. I knew that I would need a good fast lens for those long shots during the ceremony. My current 18-135mm kit lens just wouldn’t have done the trick. So after hearing about www.BorrowLenses.com on Scott Bourne’s PhotoFocus podcast I visited their website and was amazed. Their selection of photographic gear is very nice. You can rent lenses, bodies, memory cards and even some lighting stuff and the best thing is that their rates are great.
Since I shoot with a Nikon D300 I selected the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR. After tax, tag and title (LOL) I only paid $125 for a one week rental. That is much cheaper than buying that same lens.
If you are drooling over a certain lens and just can’t justify paying $2000 for it or if you need a special lens for a one-time event then I highly recommend heading over to www.borrowlenses.com and giving them a try. You won’t be disappointed.
