Needed – A generous gentleman, or lady, to lend me a lens!

CoffeeGeek 14 December 2009 5

Hi RAers,

Sorry about the Alliteration, I couldn’t help it.

A friend has asked me to photograph her wedding this coming weekend. I am NOT a professional photographer, but have good gear, and take good care of it. I did write a post on RA a few weeks ago about hiring one in Canberra, but that hit a dead end.

For the weekend of the 19th of December, I need to borrow a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS. I am happy to negotiate a price with you, whether it is cash or some of my art prints. Also, I can leave security with you, should anything go wrong.

Please email me if you can help:

That rental sounds like a bargain. I don’t need a lens now but I’m bookmarking that site.

I’m certain I can find a use for that 85mm f/1.2

ask to borrow one on freecycle – – generally people more than willing to help out!

Yeah, just a ‘beater’ for chucking in the back of the ute…

Actually, a fellow emailed me with a link to

I got the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS for $210.00, insured and delivered, for a WEEK! Also, they don’t count the transit time in the rental period, nor do they take a deposit! They just take valid CC details as insurance. I’m stoked.

Thanks Shorty!!

Haha, just after a crappy lens then.

Try photo access or Ted’s at Bailey’s Corner as well. They might know of somebody willing to assist.
