    I need help in Chicago area - my Sigma EX 18-50 f/2.8 lens is in service - the zoom ring broke on it and I have a B-day party for my daughter coming up next week. There is no chance I will get my lens back by that time, and that leaves me with only 70-200 lens that is absolutely useless for this occasion ( I kick myself for selling my nifty-fifty!)

    I am looking to borrow a canon mount mid-zoom lens for a day or 2. something in between 18-70mm, preferably fast, but will also work with kit glass, if nothing else is available. I am in Buffalo Grove, and I can give you a security deposit for the cost of the lens. Please let me know if anyone can help me. I know that there are places to rent from, but If I could avoid the cost of it, it would be nice. I promise to be super careful and if at return time you are not happy with condition of the lens, feel free to keep the deposit

    Thanks, but Sigma did a great job - the lens was fixed under warranty and shipped back to me in 2 days after they received it! It will arrive tomorrow - I can't wait!
