Hi

I am looking to rent a sigma 24-70 2.8 and a 70-200 2.8 so I can try and get some good shots at my sister in laws wedding. Lenslocker.co.UK seems to be the best place to get them from.

Does anyone have any experience of renting from them? Any feedback? Or other suggestions?

I placed an order a couple of weeks ago for rental at the start of May, so I cannot comment on the delivery etc. at this point.

I did however find their customer service via email very quick and helpful.

All the best with the hire, and for the job in hand!

Rob.

Never heard of them before, I've only ever used lensesforhire.co.uk (highly recommended) - however they don't appear to have the Sigmas you're looking for.

Yeah I know lenesforhire have a great reputation but I don't really want to shell out for L glass for an amateur shoot when sigma gear is still very good

ok, ace. :)

Do you need to rent a lens then, I cannot imagine lugging around a 1.5kg lens at a wedding I was attending...?
