Where to Rent Glass Online

Posted on: 22 August 2008

I admit it.  I like to dream about owning many, many lenses.  It seems I can always conjure up at least one photo to justify purchasing any given lens.  But when it comes right down to it, I’m not a big fan of tying all my money up in glass that sits for months and months at a time.  Sure, having a 600mm pro lens would have been great for a friend’s soccer game, but that would be over $5000 sitting in the corner in my house, collecting dust on the box right now.

So what to do to get my niche lens fix while still maintaining the ability to keep food in the kitchen?   Rent!

I used to live near Seattle, Washington and there has always been a great local shop which rents out a wide variety of lenses.  But now that I have moved further away, it’s a royal pain to head into the city for that one lens, and then to turn around a week later to return it.  And that’s where the joy of the internet and FedEx come in.
