Anyone ever purchase used equipment from a rental outfit?

    I've never rented camera equipment myself, and have no idea how it's treated by customers.

    On the one hand the positives would seem to be that rental outfits know how to inspect and keep their equipment in shape and bringing in revenue... not sure why they would sell stuff in great shape, other than maybe it's just not being used??

    On the other hand I do know how people treat rented cars. :eek: :biggrin:

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    Just wanted to add that I'm looking at lenses and bodies...
