About ten days ago, I rented a couple of lenses to play with and try out. I enjoy renting a lens now and then that I may not necessarily want to own (or spend the money to own if I won’t use it enough to justify the cost), or to try lenses I may consider buying. Lens rentals are pretty reasonable. At the local store here in Seattle, Glazer’s Camera Supply (https://www.glazerscamera.com), a typical lens rental (for a lens that retails for $1500-2000) is only about $25-30/day and if you pick up on Friday, it’s not due back until Monday for only a one-day charge. Pretty awesome, in my book. That’s a lot of fun over the weekend for $25… less than a Seattle parking ticket.
A few of the 14mm shots, just playing around to see what it can do, especially regarding straight lines in architecture, without needing a lot of post-production straightening of buildings…. (click on the photo if you prefer to see a larger version)
If I can find the time, I’ll post the 105mm tests on a later post. Thanks for stopping by!
