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?

Just go into a shop and ask to see/try a demonstration model .

And if said shop does not have it available?

there are other shops

NO THERE ARE NOT. The majority of the planet does not have brick and mortar stores left. How do you not know this?


As per my previous post , the UK is chock full of camera shops ; ditto pretty much every country in Europe . A couple of years back I tok a holiday in Tenerife - EVERY single street had at least one camera shop , in some streets the camera shops outnumbered other shops .

Go to the far east and you'll find the same thing - most big cities in Japan are the same , Hong Kong has plenty of camera shops .

How do you not know this ?

Gee, I live in Chicago, which is the 3rd largest city in the US and there is 1 store left, and I hope you like Canon.

I could care less how many little shops are left in the UK, as that is not typical.
