Where to Hire Lenses in Canberra

Postby degrosha on Sun Mar 02, 2008 10:48 pm

Does anyone know where I can hire Lenses from before I take the plunge and spend big $$$ on the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM?

Hmmm, as far as I know. There are two places to try:
1 - Ted's Camera in civic (the one next to ANZ, close to the bus interchange)
2 - Digital City also in civic (opposite to Myer building)

I would guess that there wont be many places in Canberra. One of the few downsides of living in a country town. I would either hire in Sydney from somewhere like Sun Studios or L&P or wait till there is a meet in Sydney and come up and see if you can try someone at the meets out.

I doubt that there is anywhere you can hire lenses in Canberra, at least since Kayell closed maybe 15 years ago. You could probly arrange to hire secon-hand lenses from Fletchers or Teds though should they happen to have any worth hiring.

Yeah it'd be nice to have somewhere that hires out in Canberra, but since i've been down here, i've yet to find anywhere.
