Rent Gear at Borrowlenses
Don't buy that gear before trying it out! Renting a lens you're considering buying is a great investment in saving yourself from buyer's remorse!
And if it's a piece or gear you aren't going to use constantly, renting it when you need it is a great way to save money, and I highly recommend Borrowlenses as a place to rent high quality, well-maintained gear.

in the last few weeks, laurie and I have gone to two concerts at HP Pavillion: fleetwood mac, and last night, Eric Clapton (opened by Robert Randolph and the Family band).
I’ll talk about both in more detail when I have a few spare moments (soon, soon), but coming home from the concert, laurie and I were talking about the differences in the two concerts…
Now, I admit I really like Buckingham as a guitar player (I just wish he wouldn’t sing, which explains a good part of my love/hate relationship with Fleetwood Mac).
But to explain how I feel about Buckingham vs. Clapton, here’s the best I can come up with. I believe, if I put the time and energy really trying to get good at guitar, I could become a decent cover for Buckingham.
But Clapton? I could practice every minute of my life for the rest of my life, and I’d never be qualified to carry his gear. But I’d love to get my hands on a couple of those guitars, just for a few minutes…
