Renting not ranting
In reply to Alchin, May 25, 2013

No, renting means that you can see if it is worth the money to purchase in relation to what you already have and to see if it meets your expectations.
I only rent lenses by temporary need (only a few times a year.) So that might also be a good reason to rent.

The OP mentioned that especially financially (price) in relation what h already uses is a reason to bring it back. If so it might be wiser to rent a lens for 1 or more days to evacuate it.

I did not mention anything that it ruins some one else his/her purchase because of an increase in price. My name is also not 'some of you folks'

Why not rent one in the first place for 1 or 2 days? Gives enough time to evaluate a possible purchase.

Rubbish renting means you are undecided; not ready to buy.  He was ready to buy just did not meet expectation.

He posted his finding so that other in the same boat will not have to buy and return as he did.  What is so wrong with that.

According to some of you folks who think this is increasing the price (don't agree with that notion) he may be actually reducing the price by giving the heads up to others to not do the same.
