Finally joined the forum - great hire service!

I got to know this community by looking for a hire service for Olympus equipment - I live in Belgium. I've hired twice - in 2010 an E30 & 14-35 f/2, in 2011 an E5, 12-60 and again 14-35 f/2. You can tell I love that lens. Anyway, great, professional and timely service from Julia and Jan. I'm planning to get into m43, so probably I'll be hiring again from them!

Welcome to the forum, George and yes it is a great hire service, I've used it myself.

Re: Finally joined the forum - great hire service!

I just joined the forum for the same reason. Hiring rates in Dublin are shall we say... not very competitive. I've often regarded the prices available to my American friends through LensRental.com to be miraculous in comparison. When I went searching for a nearest equivalent in the UK, I found half a dozen lenders all offering exclusively Canon and Nikon!
I finally stumbled upon the list of equipment here and was quite incredulous that such a thing existed at all, so low were my expectations.
I will save use of the rental list for a special occasion, perhaps next time I visit a friend in London, just to simplify the postage. No sense in paying €20 in postage for a €20 rental term!
