    I asked this question once before and I can't seem to find it. But does anyone know of a quality location to rent lenses/glass for Nikons? I am going to be shooting some Cheerleading at ESPN Wide World of Sports in two weeks and I need a lower F stop wide angle. Thanks in advance for you alls help.

    Never needed to rent a camera or lens but I can see where it'd be a better way
    to obtain a rarely needed lens without paying the cost of a high ticket item.
    I ran a search of "camera and lens rental" and there are quite a few businesses
    set up to provide exactly that service. Nothing in your area though.
    Most are set up as web rentals that ship via UPS.

    Thanks Brett, I posted on here once before and there were a couple of suggestions. I can't find the old post as I was hoping someone would put the info back up. I found one place just north of Kissimmee but they are a little high in prices! Also, I want a reputable place if possible. Adorama didn't have a very large array to chose from and I'm kinda scared what I will get in the mail! Thanks and if by chance you come across any good info one a place let me know.

    As always, Thank you

    There's a firm up by Mouseworld that's been in business for a while.

    Lensrentals.com looks good. Looks like you can get a telephoto 2.8 VR for around $25 per day. Seems reasonable. Email Sam and see what he has. Maybe he will loan/rent you a lens.......He shoots Nikon. Just a thought.

    I have rented from Lensrentals.com and the one in Celebration both are fine. Lensrentals.com has a much larger selection and availability and is my go to source for renting. I wish I could afford to rent more often as it's fun to play with cool new toys!
