Actually have spent many days and nights there and loved every minute of it. Went to college in Houston and roomate was from Austin. Of course I never spent any time on 6th street *cough cough*
With a cough like that you should have a drink to wet your throat.

I know just the place.

You just missed SXSW but you, and your lenses, should really come to Austin for a visit.




--- For those wanting the inside joke, 6th Street is the "Austin Capital" of Distilled/Fermented Liquid Imbibement ---

Austin's claim to be the "Live Music Capital of the World" is based on having "more live music venues per capita than such music hotbeds as Nashville, Memphis, Los Angeles, Las Vegas or New York City" (1).



Many (many) of those venues are clubs and bars along Austin's 6th street and Warehouse district. So...

(1) City of Austin - City of Austin Music Also: south by southwest festivals + conferences

CRAP! Another addiction to deal with!

I currently own 4 (yes, four) 50mm lenses, so LBA is in my blood. Now I'm tempted to chase the LRA dragon...

DAMMIT !!!

Update

I rented the 50mm FA f/1.4 from Barry for 3 weeks. Decided I liked the lens too much to send it back. Ilene gave me a call this morning and said I could keep it for $179. I asked her how much I would owe them for the UV filter and Pentax square lens hood ( B&H cost = $39.10 ) and she said, "Those are included with the lens". Too kewl!!! I am VERY pleased with Camera Lens Rental and wish Barry the best of luck with their new venture.
