Renting 67 lenses?

Hey all, I was wondering if it was possible to rent lenses for the 67? I am planning a a project and need a 35mm fisheye lens but can't justify the cost for one project.

Any help would be appreciated,

How far are you willing to drive? In Seattle, Glazer's Camera advertises Pentax 67 lens rentals. I checked Pro Photo Supply online store in Portland but nothing for the Pentax.

Thanks Tuco, I did a bunch of internet research and all I found was a place in Florida that rent almost every 67 lens ( including the 800/4) but not the 35 FE.
I may end up being better of just buying the lens, using it for the project and then reselling it.

Mixed blessing for you: No Pentax MF pathway to digital for all those years translated into little to no professional rental demand. Rental houses consequently dumping their stock is yet another factor in why the used flooded with Pentax MF lenses and why they're often bargains.

You might try Samy's Camera in southern California Samys. They say they'll "be happy to ship it to your location", and they say they have the fisheye.

Given how stable and consistent the prices of such things can be on the used market, you might actually get off easier, that way, if you can tie up the capital, and then you can take all the time you like.

Don't know any places on the West Coast, but there used to be a couple in Boston: it's been so long, it's not worth mentioning, though.
