    Another case of I wish I had known a few months ago that this was coming. Oh well.

    • Silver lining, if you consider having the lens for a few months versus how much it would have cost to rent it for that long, it makes up the virtual difference. Plus these types of discounts are much harder to guess ahead of time than cameras that get refreshed every 1-2 years.

        You make an interesting point, although I’m neither a renter nor a borrower. I’m more of a do withouter until I can find the right deal. And, you’re right about not being able to predict when or if some lens like that one might pop up at a terrific price. It helps that I’ve become something of a stoic about things like this. I sigh, then think to myself, “You win some, you lose some. C’est la vie.”

        • Plus lenses have a longer shelf life, so the difference in the price paid sort of depreciates over time in a non-accounting kind of way.
