Sony 9 coming - better get started, CaNikon...
#37
I cannot talk about Sony Switzerland. Nikon does not provide an own rental service, just a kind of inofficial replacement for products in maintenance. I can rent Nikon lenses or bodies from several dealers, but if I want new stuff, I have to wait. The 105/1.4 G is not easy to get.

 

Fuji allows people on certain events to take lenses outside and snap a bit around. I did so with the 56/1.2 APD, pleasing bokeh. And later on I found out, in darkness the focus of this lens really sucks. Nobody told me it's a "bokeh rules" only lense.

 

Sigma lenses I also can rent for 10% of the sales price / week, 2nd week 5%. And if I decide to buy it, they bill me only 90% of the sales price. Let's see: 1690.- CHF for the 85/1.4A, 90% of that = 1521.- CHF, tempting? Official pice of my dealer is 1198.- I actually have no idea why Sigma CH thinks people don't know how to make a price research. To compare: The Nikon 85/1.4 G I can get for 175.- a week, so that appears to be fair.

 

And because I'm curious how good this bloody Sigma really is, I just placed a rental order.
