If you’re thinking about buying something new, I highly recommend renting first (let’s not talk about the $2700 lens I bought because “everyone loves it”, used less than 5 times, and then sold for just over less than half of what I purchased it for). My favorite place to rent from is Borrow Lenses. If you click the banner ad below, you will be redirected to their site using my link, and if you rent something I get 5% commission for your rental! I put a lot of work into my photography related posts, and using my affiliate link is a really nice way to show your gratitude!
