Lens rental

I'm going to rent telephoto lens for portrait in August.

I think Cameralensrentals.com is more cheap and comfortable.

So I should choose one lens. 50-135, 200, and 300

Which one should be great for event in indoor and outdoor?

50-135 I don't think the 200 or 300 will be very useful indoor unless it is a very large building. Outside? Maybe but for portraits 50-135 is the best from that list unless you are doing something unusual.

I'd go for the 50-135. That at least gives you some flexibility should you need to use it for other purposes. I think 200 or 300 are just too long for portraits, unless your subject is 30 feet away...

I've rented from CLR, they're very good.

The 50-135 lens is a great for portraits and events.

If you want to shoot with a longer lens you can try a 70-200 f2.8 lens from tamron or sigma instead but they are big lenses. You will inhibit the people you are taking photos of. Not to mention getting tired of carrying it around.

ive rented all three of those from cameralensrentals. they always do a great job. depends what you're shooting. I found the best IQ from the 200, then the 300, then the zoom.

I've not used any of these lenses, but I was very happy with the service from Cameralensrentals.com, they even called to make sure I received the lens.
