Sucks to be everyone involved in this situation.
How much does something like that cost to rent?
my local place is $80/day
and he lost a 2x extender and maybe even his 1Ds Mk II
Fuck. That would suck so fucking bad. I can't even imagine having that happen to me. I'd cry.
This was posted on POTN first like last week. Don't ask me how I know.
That 59 bucks for insurance dosnt seem so bad now.
good thing he didn't just rent the 1200mm instead of using a 600mm and a 2x extender
to rent glass that expensive w/o insurance is just stupid
he used the store's "insurance" which apparently has a 12% deductible
saw that on POTN haha shit sucks
yes, i can read. i was making a statement. even 12% replacement coverage is still out of my risk level
I like how they make it out to be a huge loss to them I'm sure they have insurance to almost cover the entire cost of the lens plus that guy owes them $864 so they'll probably even make money on the deal. That sucks though I wonder what head he was using and if it could even support that kind of weight
sounds like the whole thing could have been prevented if he was shooting with a neck strap of some sort, around his neck or wrapped around his wrist. at least around his neck it would have snapped his neck and he would have to see everything hit the ground.
It's weather sealed!
Makes me sad they want to destroy it. I'd rather take it apart and take all the elements out and put them up on display, or maybe make a cut-out of the lens (like cut parts of the casing off to display the innards) and put it on display.
Having those glass elements as coasters would be badass (the concave ones at least).
