Renting A K-3 II

I signed up at LensRentals to preorder a K-3 II for the middle of May along with a Bigmos to take to Yellowstone. Hopefully they will have them in stock by then.

Did you use MAY20 for a discount?

That was at CameraLensRental. They don't have the Bigmos in a K mount.

They don't have it or don't have it in stock for the middle of May?

CameraLensRental.com - Sigma 50-500mm F/4.5-6.3 APO DG OS for Pentax rental

CameraLensRental.com - Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM APO rental

I could see why they might not have it in stock for the next few weeks as this is the prime time for birding in the Northeast.

I asked as I am looking to rent that lens from them in the near future and I get the discount emails regularly. Don't know if they will have the K3ii though...

When I looked at their website the other day I didn't see the Bigmos. I have rented one from them in the past but I must have missed it. Hard to beat their 20% off deals.

Well they don't have a new body for pre-order, but personaly I would rather take the K-3 I know is reliable and familiar.

Interested to hear your impressions and see some big pixel-shifted landscapes!

Well, phooey! LensRentals haven't got their K-3 II allotment in yet so I'll have to wait. I'll just have to use the K-3 instead. (sigh)
