anyone know if there are any camera stores that rent lenses in the Charleston, SC area? Haven't been able to find any online, thinking my best bet is to rent online..

I'll be there with friends for a week for a wedding in August...

I actually just looked into this. I thought I had a couple leads but no luck. I'm going there in 2 weeks. I think you need to order online before you set out.

Gripped Canon XS • Kit 18-55 IS • EF-S 55-250 IS • 50mm f/1.8 MK II • EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS • 430EX II

Not affiliated with this guy at all... I'm moving to Charleston in a couple of weeks and have been browsing craigslist to get a feel for what i'm in for. Found this thread searching Charleston on POTN...
Too late for either of the original posters, I'm sure - but may come in handy for someone else.
