Pentax 645Z Loan?

Does anyone know if Ricoh loans out the 645Z to photographers? I need one for a few fashion shoots I have coming up and wanted to know if that's an option before I start looking at camera rental company. If anyone can provide me a contact in Ricoh for such inquiry, that'll be greatly appreciated.

Go to Lens Rentals - LensRentals.com - Rent Medium Format > Pentax

They will rent you Pentax medium format gear in the US.

Thanks Chris. I'm already aware of Lensrentals.com as they are my next option. My question was about whether Ricoh has any such program.

I don't think Ricoh USA has such an option.

If you're seriously interested in buying one I think they may work with you on a loaner. However, based on your inquiry, it appears that you're only interested in using them to facilitate a couple of paid shoots with no intention of purchase. If that's the case, I suggest you do the honest thing and pay for a rental unit as a cost of doing business.

1) I'm waiting on the release of the FF to see if I should purchase the 645z or that.
2) I was asking with intention to pay for a loaner, not get a free handout.
I would suggest you stop making assumptions on people's intention. Thanks.

Sorry for necroposting, but I have a similar problem right now. OP, where did you get a loan for 645Z after all? I searched for best option, but right now I have nothing. Earlier I borrowed money from https://expertpaydayloans.com for another reason. Thinking about contacting those guys one more time. They loaned me a car with a 3 % interest rate. Maybe they will give me money on 645Z with good conditions? Just looking for a good option. Did you get device after all? And where did you take a loan if so?
