    I am getting a Going to the Caribbean soon and want to rent a wide angle since I'm spending my lens money on a 14-140. Is there a place in Canada the rents a 7-14 or a us company that will ship to me?

    Thanks

    I emailed them and they don't ship to Canada. Thank you though :^)

    It's kind of a gamble, but I bet that if you were to simply buy the lens outright and resell, you wouldn't be too far off a rental cost. Assuming it sells and you don't get slammed by ebay fees or something, anyway.

    Vistek rents equipment, and they have 2 stores in Calgary. Have you checked with them?

    Vistek and the camera store have zero m43 gear for rent.

    I sent borrow lenses an email to see if they would ship it to my hotel in Florida. Fingers crossed
