Don’t have $12,000 laying around to buy the new Canon EF 200-400mm f/4 IS USM Extender 1.4x lens? You can still rent it for as little as 3 days and up to 4 weeks. Rental rates start at $420. Check it out here at BorrowLenses.com.
DPS and BorrowLenses.com have teamed up to run a contest. The prize is a two-week rental of a DSLR lens — any lens that BorrowLenses.com offers, with the exception of super telephoto lenses.
The contest is open to anyone living in the U.S. (BorrowLenses.com only ships to U.S. addresses and only offers in-person pickups in San Mateo and San Jose, California). All you have to do to enter is post a comment [Ed. on DPS' website - link] with the lens you want to rent. A list of lenses is available on the BorrowLenses.com website and the selection seems pretty decent. The winner will need to provide BorrowLenses.com with a credit card number, ‘just in case.’
