  1. What a fabulous contest! I would have to choose between the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM or the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L USM II Wide Angle Lens.

  2. OHHH! So lucky to be procrastinating by browsing your blog πŸ˜‰ I would love to rent the Canon 24mm 1.4 IS L, especially after seeing those pictures of Fergie today!

  3. Yay contest!
    Would love to rent the Sigma 15mm fisheye and also have a go with the new 70-300 to help decide if I want that or the classic 70-200.

  4. I could have lots of fun trying out these lenses…Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM, Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L Tilt-Shift, Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM, Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L II USM. Good luck everyone!

  5. I’d love to rent the Canon 5D…or possibly the Mark II so I can experience a full frame camera.

  6. If I were to win the gift certificate I would rent the 24mm PC lens. I’ve been wanting to try it for sometime now.

  7. How to narrow down such a long wish-lish! There are a variety of my lenses that I have been wanting to upgrade since I just upgrade my Canon body……..

  8. Fisheye! Sigma 8mm f/3.5 or maybe the Profoto Ring Flash. The possibilities are endless!

  9. I would love to try out 35 or 28 mm Prime for canon. I have a 50mm 1.8, but the 1.4s are so much crisper.

  10. Oooohhh!!! I sooo want to give BorrowLenses a try! Became a fan on facebook and posted a comment with the link…yay!

    I would start with the Olympus Macro 50mm 2.0 then there are just so many more that it would be hard to choose…but choose I would!

  11. I really need to try out Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L USM or the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM. I need a new lens in that size range and I have to decide which one!

  12. I’d love to try out the Canon 100m macro L lens. That or the 50mm 1.4 L πŸ™‚

    also… I have been a fan of their fb page for a while! πŸ™‚

  13. I would like to rent another Canon EF-S 17-55mm F/2.8 IS USM. I already have one, but mine just doesn’t seem to have the great clairity that everyone else seems to have. It would be nice to compare it to another lens. Two other top choices would be a Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L Mark II USM and a Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM. Regardless, thanks for doing this. I know whoever wins will enjoy it.

  14. I have been wanting to try out this site for a long time! Would like to rent some macro lenses and a Canon 70-200 UMF lens to try out on my new T2i before purchasing one…

  15. I love Borrowlenses and am looking to rent the canon 24-70 2.8 just to practice with and see if I want the Canon version.

  16. I’ve run across your website before seeing this contest via borrowlenses! I love your work! I volunteer at a local shelter and with a local rescue to take portraits for their websites! I would LOVE to rent the Nikon 17-55 2.8! I’ve been looking at this lens for a while as a fast, wide portrait lens!

  17. I would absolutely love to rent a wide angle lens for landscapes and HDR work. Something like a Sigma 10-20mm. I need to get one this year for that and want to try it out first.

  18. I just got a new lens, but I would start with a monopod and filters for a trip! Thanks for this contest!

  19. I would love to try out the Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Canon. I don’t know why I haven’t tried lenses from before. It sure would expand my horizons!

  20. Great Idea, I’d like to snap some lovely bokeh-ed pet portraits with the Nikon 200mm f/2G AF-S ED VR II πŸ™‚

  21. I would love to rent this lens: Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L USM or a Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS USM. It would depend on what subjects I had lined up for that time frame. Thanks for the opportunity!

  22. I would rent the 85mm 1.2 for a wedding I am doing! I have rented it before, and LOVED the quality!!

  23. mmmmmm…..I think it would be the Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 II AF-s VR DX or the Nikkor 50mm 1.4G AF-S.
    Thanks for the great opportunity! πŸ™‚

  24. I always rent from Borrow lenses before I make a purchase decision. They’ve saved me from some expensive mistakes AND gotten me addicted to some things I can’t afford

  25. Always an inspiration. Now a fulfillment of dreams. My choice would be the Canon 24mm 1.4 or Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 lens.

    Thanks for doing this.


  26. I rented the 70-200 f2.8 from Borrowlenses last summer to take shots of a fast pitch softball tournament and fell in love with it. I would definetly rent it again! I would love to own one someday.

  27. I’d actually like to rent an SB-900 and a Ray Flash, maybe PocketWizards. I’m still saving up to buy my own.

  28. I’d use it to go towards buying the used Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S IF-ED DX VR – or – Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G AF-S IF-ED VR.

  29. Wow what a giveaway ! Well there is tons I want to try out but I know I want to play around with a lens baby so that would probably be the first thing I rent !

  30. I have never tried them but have been wanting to for a long time. Just waiting for the right opportunity (and enough advance notice). A gift certificate would be awesome!
    PS I love love love your work.

  31. Would have to go with the Tamron 200-500mm f/5-6.3 SP AF Di LD IF for Nikon in order to get some fun shots of the eagles currently in the area.

  32. I love, but if I don’t have a twit account, does that mean I’m disqualified?

  33. I’d probably play with one of the Canon Fisheye lenses, and/or perhaps rent a better Canon body than the one I already own…

  34. I love Borrowlenses! I have rented from them several times and have always had a great experience with their lenses.
    My daughter is a Senior in high school and I need to take her Senior pictures still, so if I were to win this contest I would rent either the Canon EF 16-35mm F/2.8L Mark II USM or the Canon EF 50mm F/1.2L USM or maybe both.;)

  35. Hi! First, lemme say that I LOVE it that you are a specialty photog who does pets! That’s awesome!
    Now, from BorrowLenses, I’d love to try the Sigma 8mm f/3.5 EX DG Fisheye for Canon {I haven’t gotten to play around with a fisheye yet!} and I’d also love to play with some of the LensBaby lenses!

  36. I love me some 24mm from Borrowlenses (the Canon f/1.4L variety)! Although the new version of the 70-200 would be fun too. I’ve always had great experiences with Borrowlenses,shipping them here or to destination shoots.

  37. Would love to borrow some lenses! This would be perfect for a road trip to the grand canyon in late Feb! Want to try the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM…

  38. Since I’ve been drooling over it for awhile now, I would love to try the Nikon d7000 and the 24-70mm to go with it. Or maybe the 35mm f/1.4!

  39. Awesome.
    I Love Macro photography and recently bought Canon 100mm F2.8L Macro lens. But If I win I would love to try Canon 70-200 F2.8L lens for a week or so.

    Love you BorrowLens


  40. I keep drooling over the Canon 24-70L and wanting to try, but know if I rent it then I’ll want to buy it and then I’ll have to budget for it. Oh well, still would love to try it out.

  41. Whoo! πŸ™‚ Did it all. πŸ™‚ I would rent the nikon 24mm 1.4… Or maybe the 35mm… I soooo need a wide angle. πŸ™‚

  42. With so many to choose from how could you pick just one? My choice the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 AF-S ED

  43. Hi! I would love to win the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro USM for 2 weeks for my honeymoon in Hawaii in may.

  44. I tweeted (@m_w_jones) last week that I would have preferred to drop $130 on a lens rental than on a tux for a buddy’s wedding. The wedding was cool, but I still would have preferred the lens. I think I have a problem, but I’m not sure.
