LensRentals and LensAuthority announces " Black Friday " deal
Posted By: aslyfox, 11-25-2019, 09:00 AM

just got an email from Lensrentals.com and their used equipment sales agency about " Black Friday " specials


30% off your order at Lensrentals
15% off all LensAuthority orders
+ Free 2 year extended warranty on lenses
+ Free 1 year extended warranty on cameras

Lensrentals code LRBF19
LensAuthority code LABF19

Codes expire 12.02
LR Orders must arrive by 2.28.20 | One use per customer per code

as I read it, you must purchase from LensAuthority by December 2nd

you must agree to rent from LensRental by December 2nd but the equipment's delivery can be delayed until Feb 28, 2020

LensRental does rent Pentax cameras and Pentax branded lenses as well as third party lenses which will fit Pentax Cameras

nice

I'm not looking

my budget was blown on getting an " experienced " FA 77mm F1.8 Limited recently from a forum member

_____________

I rented a 20-40mm limited this summer from LensRentals but did not buy it, Perhaps you just did

That's possible - it was the only 20-40 LA had for sale. Do you happen to have the serial number or recall any "distinguishing marks" on the lens?

Yeah, this has been my thought process, too. I have each of the DA Ltd and even a couple duplicates... but I couldn't resist such a good deal on the 20-40 and if the lens doesn't tickle my fancy I'll simply sell it and somebody else will get a bargain.

The other contributing factor is that I enjoy shooting with theTamron Adaptall-2 SP 24-48mm f/3.5-3.8 (13A), and the 20-40 will give me a similar range and hopefully similar enjoyment.

To put a bow on this...

I received the lens on Friday - fast shipping by LA - and am returning the lens today. It's a lovely lens, and I found the optical performance to be good and the rendering to be truly lovely, but unfortunately it had significant AF issues at infinity, particularly in Live View. I emailed LA about the issue and RMA request on Saturday evening and they approved and sent me a shipping label this morning, so superb customer service by them (so far). Just a bit disappointed a company that rents camera equipment would send out a defective lens...
