I was about to rent a lens for $100.

But then I thought I could also just buy and return.

I've rented before and ended up buying so I'm not just buying with 0 probability to keep.

Has anyone gotten into issues with renting via the buy-and-return method?

If a shop volunteers a service where they let you return a lens, I see no problem in using that service. As it is, it is a service they want the customers to use because nobody is forcing their hand. I'd use it and say thank you.

Indeed , here in the UK , distance selling regulations give you a mandatory right of return on anything you purchase without stepping onto the vendors premises , this applies not only to goods , like cameras , but also to services like insurance .
