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 you are looking at Canon gear, and are a member of Canon Professional Services (CPS), you can ask to borrow gear for evaluation.  You get the item for about 10 days, and you pay only the cost of return shipping.
