Ok, so I rented a lens...
10 months ago

from a very well know rental web site, which is reputable and provides a wonderful service at a reasonable price.

So my question is, can I expect the same performance out of a new copy that I got out of the rented lens?  I mean, does the place that rents you a lens test and "cherry pick" good copies?  I am aware that the popular lens rental site does testing, and verification of their lenses... I am contemplating the 85mm L II, am wondering if the lens rental place just had a great copy?  Would I have to test to get a good copy?  Thoughts?

It has never mattered to me that much, having purchased lenses that were $1k or less, but now I am looking at the big leagues ($1700+) I am curious...

Hope this makes sense, did not want this to turn into an advertisement for this lens rental place LOL.
