Re: Renting Lenses

Wish I knew a safe way to sell a thing like this without eBay.  I have a pristine 17-55 I paid $1,040.00 for after using it only 12 months.  I'd sell for $475 because I have no crop body anymore.

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

You and Ernie Biggs may be the only ones in the group who have gone completely FF. But I think almost everybody else who needs the 17-55 already has it. (My wife and I both do.) So you'll probably have to cast a wider net.  Smiley Wink  What you need is somebody on a ski trip to your area who could pick it up and pay you in person.

There's always Craigslist.  With Craigslist the buyers are usually local to your area so typically there's no shipping and mailing of money.  You can arrange to meet a location such as a local coffee shop to avoid having to invite the buyer to your home.

Actually, it's John who lives in ski country, isn't it? Ah, me. The mind starts to go first when you get old. Please excuse my confusion.

Well yes and no.  My main most cameras all use only EF lenses but they are not all FF.  I still use a 1D Mk IIn and my beloved 1D Mk IV.  Both crop bodies.  All my Nikons are FF now but they can use either DX or FX lenses.
