Does lens rental make sense?
Sep 24, 2013

If I am lucky my E-M1 will arrive before my vacation in October.

I also ordered the 12-40 f2.8 and the 40-150 lenses.

Obviously the 12-40 will not arrive in time so I was thinking of renting the Olympus 12-50 for the trip which would cost me $84 for nine days. Amazon shows the lens for $499.

Can anyone suggest a better alternative?
