BorrowLenses.com November Savings

For anyone wondering, I rent my gear from BorrowLenses.com.  No other rental company that I know of beats them on pricing.  Depending on where you live, shipping can be a little much since they charge you for both ways up front, but unless you live in a major city, you’re going to have to pay […]
