Hiring 645Z and lenses in Australia

Hello all,

Does anyone know of a place where a 645Z and lenses (especially the 25mm) can be hired in Australia?

Many thanks,

C.R. Kennedy is the agent for all things Pentax in Oz. Don't know if they hire equipment but if anyone does hire the 645Z they would know about it.

I spoke to Digidirect and their arrangement is more a sort of long-term lease model - whereby you lease for a period of months or years, with the equipment being updated as new models arrive. I am thinking more of the ability to just hire for a day, a night, a weekend, on spec, as required, without any further commitment. So quite different.

Thanks for the suggestion re. C.R. Kennedy and Georges - I will look into those for sure.

All the best,

What State/City are you in Ed?

I have the Z, 28-45, 55, 90, 150 and 300. If you are in an easy to access city I may consider a weekend trip and we can take photos and you can use them.

That's very generous of you Scott and would love to shoot with you! It doesn't solve my specific need (which is for a 645Z plus 25mm lens to complement my own pairing), but would be fun anyway in its own right!

I live in Sydney.
