I just buy used stuff, try it out for as long as I want, and then sell it again, used, if it isn't working out. If you are patient and wait for a good deal, then it can cost less than 10% overall after resale. Sometimes I've even profited, but that's a rarity.

I'd still only recommend it if you think it is something you want long term. Buying with the intent to keep, but knowing you can come close to breaking even if it doesn't end up fitting your needs.

Many times I've had lenses for a year that I've sold for what I paid, so the only cost for a year's "rental" was $15 shipping plus a paypal fee...

Exactly , and if you do it well you can even make money at it .
