I have a lot of respect for Lensrentals, but this issue is not as bad as it is made out to be. I have shot numerous events like this and NEVER had an issue. Use a TTP (or whatever brand you prefer) rain cover and you won't have any issues.
WTB some color bombed lenses, on the cheap!
I love CR, including the forum. Always something new to learn. Thanks distant.star and Roger Cicala for alerting us to this potential disaster. Will definitely be more alert to my surroundings in the future, whether with my equipment or someone elses.
I am not surprised. Don't treat rental equipment any different than if you owned itI agree. I am sure this will become popular where I live in 12 months so I know not to join such festivus.

That video ad shows a famous festival in India. Have Americans (guess lensrentals is US?) started doing the same thing at runs? Amazed the local councils have not banned it. Must make an awful mess, and it is not exactly a tradition.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.
Roger at LensRentals has posted a warning about the color bombs used at some running events:
He says they will consider damage done to rental equipment at such events as negligent use of equipment.
I've never seen those and hope I never do.
And man can sticky micro-particles be good for the lungs? Tossing them at runners of all things too? stupidity
