Renting the Pentax 18-135mm lens?

I'd really like to rent this lens before committing to buy it, but the only two USA sites that I know of that rent K-mount ( and don't have this lens. Anyone know of any other source?

(I supposed I could just buy one and return it if I don't like it, but that feels kinda sleazy...)

I know that Adorama has a return policy where (basically) if you're not satisfied with the lens within 30 days you can return it, so why not just jump on that? I'll end up cheaper either way as you'll just have to pay for the return shipping.

Is that a reliable way of "renting" lenses, Adam? I've thought about trying a few different kind of lenses like that but have never talked to anyone that has actually done that before. I don't want to get stuck with a $500 charge on my card
