  • Is the Hire Service still running?

    Just wondering, as I can't find any updated price lists or any recent activity. I was hoping to try out the 12-100mm f4 as there is no Try/Wow dealer anywhere close to me.

    I see no reason to believe it is not continuing.

    I hired a lens several months ago, good service and a good move........

        Hmm... I know people have hired kit since then, but that price list is almost 5 years out of date....

          The list may be out of date but it does contain an email address for enquiries etc.

          Regards.

            Apart from anything else, the item of interest is too new to appear on that list. It also seemed useful to surface the topic here for general interest. I will make enquires and post the outcome here.

              Hi James,

              We've been in touch and you as you know we don't have a 12-100 but we continue to offer other items for as long as there is demand and the prices from 2013 continue to be offered for the items we have remaining in stock.

              The service was originally launched in cooperation with Olympus to satisfy hire demand when there was no other hire service offering Olympus gear. That is no longer the case and Olympus no longer provides new models for our stock but we continue to offer our existing stock and of course we get regular enquiries, especially from our existing customers.

              Therefore we can continue to offer older items as listed and indeed in the last week we received a booking for a ZD 7-14 f/4, for example, but we also have a few items not listed, like the 40-150 Pro.

                  Great service too, hired a flash last December for a Wedding. Can fully recommend the hire service.
