    Was wondering if anybody had any horror stories or good experiences with any of the online lens rental companies out there.

    I'm looking for one that I can stick with for a while and am having a tough time wading through the numerous ones that aree out there.

    Thanks!

    Is there a "pro shop" in your area, where you can drive to and pick up and return lenses for rental??? That might be helpful to you, saving you both time and money on both ends of each rental! I don't know the Richmond,VA area at all, but I'd think there might be a shop or two that has gear for rental. Some stores allow a Friday rental to be extended over the entire weekend, yet charged as only a single day, and it has also become customary to apply a rental fee toward the purchase price of the same lens if you rent and then buy the same model within 30 to 45 days of the rental.

    I've rented from Pro Photo Rental several times. They were excellent. Customer service is top-notch.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Derrel: I've looked and haven't seen that the pro shops in my area advertise the service, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to call and check.
