Re: Considering hiring a lens

Have hired the 300m and several other lenses, great service! The 300mm is heavy so transport cost both ways needs to be factored in, if not close enough to Hemel Hempsted to pickup/return in person.

However image quality is very good even with 1.4 converter. I did not have 2x convertor. As its a f2.8 lens it does help to get higher shutter speeds needed for sharp images.

I find using these heavy lenses with monopod makes them much more manageable, although BIF is some what tricky.

Certainly worth trying.
