Good News From LensRentals

I wrote to LensRentals about the possibility of having a Pentax mount Sigma 150-500 and a DA 560 f/5.6 available for rent. This is what Tyler responded:

Tyler Beckman, Nov 04 08:43 pm (CST):

Hey Steve, after reading your email, I placed an order for a Sigma 150-500mm lens for Pentax cameras. We should have it listed on our site and available for renting within a few business days. Thanks for the recommendation!

I can't commit to stocking the new 560mm lens just yet, but there's a chance we'll have it stocked sometime next year.

Tyler Beckman

How about that?

Good for you. Perhaps this is the start of more availability for those of us with only an ocassional need for certain lenses? Thanks.

Posts: 15,302 has both the 50-500 Bigma and the 150-500 Lil'Bigma as well as the DA* 300/4 and the DA* 60-250.

I notice LensRentals only has the 60-250, $59.25 for 5 days. CameraLens Rentals has it for $58 for 7 days.

But I suppose it's good to have more availability.

It's nice to hear about a responsive vendor.

I'll have to look into renting the lil Bigma before heading out for my next wild life adventure. It will put a bit more distance between the bears and I.
