But the 5D Mark III, when you can rent the Mark IV instead? Odd. I'd expect the expensive 5DSR before the III.
Maybe the Mark IV was booked. I have a feeling a lot of these rentals are for video productions, which often have fixed production schedules.

Maybe you already have a 5D3 and want another backup for an important event. And you want to use the same type.
Maybe you want to buy a 5D3 as it is much cheaper than the 4 and try it out first.
Maybe... ;-)

wonder what the requests would look like. This might be hard to do since many people look on the website w/o requesting

That list shows how video is very important according to almost everything on that list.. The funny thing to me is that imo the 24-70mm or both that and the 70-200mm might be the only items that is probably rented for photos more than video.
