Want To Borrow: Long Zoom/Telephoto for my Nikon D90 and Isle of Man - May 22, 2009, 02:34 PM

Hellooooo.

I am looking to borrow a long telephoto/zoom lens to try to capture some of the awesomeness of the Isle of Man TT race in a couple weeks. I have a 18-200 but I'm afraid the 200 isn't going to be long enough, and would like some options.

If anyone has a lens that could help out let me know. I will treat it as if it were my own and you have my personal guarantee that you will get it back in the exact same condition you lent it in, or I will buy you a new one. Promise.

Shoot me a PM if you can help! This is for a D90 BTW (nikon f mount, DX sensor)

For that price, you can buy a lens.

you can buy a lens, yes. A good lens, probably not.

It said a 3k deposit plus 150/day. You can get some decent lenses in the price range of what it would cost to rent (not including deposit) if you rented for 5 days.

Sure, other lenses would cost more than that, but it depends entirely on the type of lens in question.

something over 200mm for $750? Depends on what level of quality youre willing to accept.

Heres a Canon 400 2.8L, one of the best Canon lenses made, for $319/ 7 day rental

OK thanks for the links. I know of many places to rent lenses, and have looked into it, and they are crazy expensive. If I'm paying 300$+ for a rental, I'd rather just save the money and buy the lens.

I was just asking if anyone had one to lend. Thank you Bo for the response.
