I learned in this post from Tom that it is possible to rent lenses. It never occured to me to think about it! When Bob asked me to take pictures of his show, I knew I couldn’t with the kit lens that came with my camera. So I went to LensRentals.com, read all the reviews, and decided to rent the Canon 85mm f1.8.
All in all, I was pretty pleased with most of the shots I got. Next time, though, I think I will try the Canon 50mm f1.4. I love that I can try these lenses out without having to buy! This is fabulous! (I still need to learn more about Photoshop to adjust a few things… But hey… One step at a time!)
I think I’ll rent a macro lens for wildflower season… and a zoom lens for dragonfly season…
