I have a wedding coming up (October) and I am just wondering where a good place to rent a few lenses from would be? I am thinking I need them for a week so I can get use to them before the wedding. I am thinking I would like a 70-200mm 2.8is for some distance and then something like the 17-55 2.8 for some walking around. They are having 2 ceremonies and I am shooting the first of 2 and then I get to just enjoy the second one :)

Thanks for the advice/help!
(Sorry if its in the wrong section!)

I have rented from them in the past and have had great experiences and the prices are very reasonable.

Sweet I just did all my pricing out for the lenses I think I need/want. Seems like a nice legitimate site too. Thanks!

I've used them a couple of times. Fast delivery... lenses worked great... an overall good experience.

Have fun.

You could also try any camera shops in your area if you want to go that route. I rent from Calumet here in Philly, can't beat 28 bucks for a weekend with a 24-70 2.8L

They are usually cheaper from what I've seen. I've used them before and had a wonderful experience.

Hows their stock? I'm in Philly as well and in need of a 70-200 f2.8 IS for a wedding in a couple of weeks and don't want to wait until the last minute for one of these lens rental places to say "sorry all out".

Let me know what your experiences were like.
