Lens Rentals Canada is shutting down permanently, according to a statement issued by owner Craig Blair on Monday. He cites logistical issues and personal reasons, saying numerous problems with the business 'didn’t make it a fun endeavor'. The closure is effective immediately. Blair, who also runs Canon Rumors, says the company is working to meet all the reservations currently in the system, but after that he plans to sell all inventory with a 90-day warranty.

The personal reasons weren't detailed, but according to a statement from the company, logistics have become an increasing problem. Lens Rentals Canada cites trouble with Canadian shipping options, which have failed to 'confidently ship' products to and from customers, resulting in problems with maintaining its customer service standards. A year ago, the company ceased service temporarily, pointing to problems with theft using Canada Post.
