Ok, I'm hoping to view the Shuttle launch in Oct. Is a night time launch so I KNOW lighting will be a challenge. Also the longest lens I have is a Sigma 70-300.. Any advice on shooting? And its extremely unlikely I will get ahold of a longer lens (no one seems to give out the really long lenses for free).

Rent a lens?

http://www.rentglass.com has the Nikon 80-400mm for $52/wk, and the Canon 100-400mm for $49/wk.

They've also got the Sigma 50-500mm for Canon for $45/wk.

http://www.cameralensrentals.com lists approximately the same prices.

That's an interesting site, too bad almost everything is accounted for.


Probably would have rented the canon 10-22mm for my week in Yamanashi had I known this site.


Might rent the Canon 50 f/1.2L next time I work a concert just to see how noticeable the difference is.
