Pentax 28-70mm FA* avialable to rent

Just wanted to let you know that we have added at 28-70mm FA* to our rental fleet for Pentax. Should be in Thursday of next week. We only have one at the time and are working on an 80-200mm FA*. We are working on getting a few more of the FA* lenses as well. They are tough to find and even when we find them we want to make sure they are in incredible shape (Like New). We have been searching and searching and if anyone sees any please let us know.

We are also waiting to receive the 55mm 1.4 as well as the 60-250mm. Soon as they come in we will let everyone know.

Thanks everyone!

Congrats Barry and Ilene (assume she is still there) on the additions!

BTW - I highly recommend to anyone in the states! I've used them twice (soon to be a third time) and everything has been perfect to date.

Kenyee. We are still tossing this around. Due to the circumstances of the lens...obviously you have to pay to play so to speak. Look for those prices to go down if anything in the next few days. Serveral factors when putting a rental price on that lens. Replacement cost, repair costs (going to Japan), avialability to replace, etc...

OT, but any possibility that you may have a Sigma 50-500 in the coming months?

Might have to try that lens out in spite of already having the Tamron 28-75.

I have to echo Bactman's comments. I rented the Pentax DA 10-17mm Fisheye for the Obama inauguration and the lens and service from Camera Lens Rentals was SUPERB!
