Re: Buy a Nikon 35mm SLR or rent a Canon Lens?

Good grief I missed that! The 650 gets confusing because now there is a 650D digital.

Rent the Canon L lens and take the D750 too. Check exposures with the digital and have at it with the film camera. Use some nice films to make the effort worthwhile.

P.S. Wording was perfect, my reading was less than so.  A good Nikon SLR in good shape that you can trust on a trip would cost more than the rental.  If you can trust the 650, stick with it.  The Canon lens may have a slight advantage because it is faster. more money put into glass, and narrower, not trying to do as much as the Nikon.
