I rented the HD 20-40mm f2.8-4.0 Limited DC WR from Lensrentals.com in August. Maybe the same lens aslyfox had previously. As has always been my experience the rental was excellent. Came in a Pelican case and a padded lens case. Lens was near-mint. Return with the included label was simple.

I've used LensRentals and CameraLensRentals and both of them provide excellent customer service and lightning fast shipping. I'd give the nod to LensRentals, though, because CLR for some reason still rents out the Pentax K-7 and charges more for that than they do for the K-3... (And the K-7 and K-3 are the only bodies they have!)

Another satisfied user from LensRental. I've used them for 4 years now when I need an extra body or special lens for an event or vacation.

I've rented:
Pentax 50-135mm F2.8
Pentax 60-250mm F4
Pentax 24-70 F2.8
Pentax K-P
Pentax 70-200mm F2.8
Pentax 1.4x HD Converter
Pentax K-3 II (twice)
Pentax 300mm F4
Pentax 150-450mm F4.5-5.6

Next year I'll try their K-1

new email from LensRental re: the virus








Dear customer,
The safety of our team members and customers is vitally important, and as you are probably well aware, COVID-19, aka coronavirus, requires a greater level of health awareness than ever before.

Lensrentals would like to reassure customers and team members that we have taken additional precautions to ensure all equipment and packaging, whether received or shipped, is cleaned and sanitized. Lensrentals currently has no employees or customers, that we’re aware of, that have come into contact with the virus. All non-essential office staff are working from home.

We’re being vigilant and maintaining a rigorous hand-washing protocol, and would encourage everyone to do their part to help prevent further spread of the virus. Hand sanitizer is also available throughout all company facilities, and Lensrentals is ensuring that its team members have the resources they need to stay healthy.

Lensrentals is open for business, confident that our facilities, practices and equipment for rental are all safe. If your circumstances have changed due to COVID-19 or your event or travel plans have been cancelled, please contact our customer service team who will be able to help move your reservation or cancel.

We thank you for your continued support and hope everyone is able to resume their normal lives shortly.

Lensrentals will continue to monitor the situation relating to COVID-19, taking guidance from the Center for Disease Control and World Health Organization, and evolving our health and safety practices as more information becomes available.

Sincerely,
Lensrentals
