Lens Rental

RandG_029I 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…

  1. I’ve been exploring your photos. Nice photos?. The students (and one of my colleagues) looked like they had a great time last night, and these pictures show that…what night did you take these shots? It was a great show, wasn’t it?

  2. How cool you were able to rent some lenses! How long do you get to keep them? I have been seeing your pictures all day being posted on flickr! Looks like a great time!

  3. Thanks.

    Karen – I took photos on Thursday night, thinking there would be fewer folks in the audience to annoy with the click click clicking… Still, there were quite a few people there!

    Next time, now that I know, I’ll rent the lens for Tech Sunday when there is no audience to annoy!

    I still have more photos to upload! Maybe I’ll finish them today…

    Isn’t lensrentals.com great? I may become addicted! It is just so awesome to shoot with pro quality glass. Thank you Roger Cicala and Lensrentals.com!
