    Renting Lenses for Pentax

    Is there any place to rent a lenses for the K10D, I have been searching google and I only come up with places that only rent lenses for Canon and Nikon, I need a better lenses than the kit for a photo shoot on Sunday. Help...and oh yeah it would be nice if the place is located in the Atlanta area, but online rentals stores are OK. :mad2:

    I did some searching and found the same thing as you. I did find a couple posts on other forums asking the same thing. The only Pentax lens rentals they could fine were for medium format gear.

    If you're in a pinch, you could always buy one, use if for your shoot, and then take it back. Not all that ethical, but...

    no problem, glad to help, hopefully the more of us renting, more store will stock Pentax products. BTW Camera Lens Rentals are very responsive to emails and phones, providing updates, etc. I just wish they stock more lenses for Pentax, but I know that is based on demand.
