Ok, so does anyone have any experience with getting used equipment from them. I hesitate because rented stuff (e.g., cars) are usually not treated all that well, so what you usually get is some very beat up equipment that won't last as long. I was hoping to get some feedback from the community as to whether this is an acceptable way of getting good equipment a little cheaper.
I have rented lenses from Lens Rentals 5 or 6 times, and a camera once. Each and every time the equipment I received was in good working order, and that is the same equipment you are buying.
I know they test each lens after every rental, and keep things maintained, sending lenses to Canon for repair if needed. They aren't dumping junk, the lenses they sell are in good shape.
I purchased a 70-200 f/2.8 IS from them and had no problems. They do offer a 3 day inspection period with no questions asked return - but you don't get reimbursed for the shipping. Also, they warranty the lens for 90 days. So there is very little risk.
The company is honest and excellent to work with. They will answer any questions about the history of a specific lens. They told me the one I bought had been to Canon to fix an AF problem, so I knew what I was getting.
I don't think their normal used prices are much better than you would get elsewhere, but at least you know you are buying from a company that will stand behind their product and will want to make things right if there is an issue. With the 10% off Black Friday sale, I think their used stuff is a good deal.
If they have something you need or want, I wouldn't hesitate to do business with them.
I know this sounds like a comercial, but there aren't many companies that treat the customer the way they do.
