I have been asked to be a photographer with another guy in a wedding in December. Yeah, it's a long time off, but I am already starting to think of some additional equipment I want to buy to be prepared. I'll probably make another topic later on this, but for now I am just looking at lenses.
I am still narrowing down my list of lenses that I think would work best, and most cost north of $1,000. I started looking around at rental sites as another option:http://www.lensrentals.com/
Many of the $1,000 lenses can be rented for roughly $100 including shipping and insurance. My thought is I can spend $300 and get to test $3000+ worth of hardware. Does this sound like a good idea. Has anyone ever rented lenses before from a place like this?
