New Contest: Win a FREE one-week rental of a LENS or DSLR from

We have a new lens rental contest! It is similar to the contest we had in January of 2009. The lucky winner will receive a free one week rental of the lens (or DSLR body) of their choice, thanks to who is offering the prize. Because of the nature and logistics of the lens rental business, this contest is only open to US residents. This is a green contest, the award will be shipped directly to the winner, thus avoiding unnecessary round-trip shipments!

The Contest
It is easy to enter the contest: Write in the comments section below which lens (from the borrowlenses collection) you would like to try, and make the case why. For example, you can explain how this lens could benefit your art/work, or if you are the technical type, how you could use the lens for testing purposes. The person who makes the most convincing and creative case (in our judgment) will be the lucky winner.

Be sure to include a way to contact you as the winner. For example, if you leave your blog in your signature, make sure your blog has a way to contact you, and it is something that you check on a regular basis.

Also, if you are the type who likes to edit early and often, consider using an IntenseDebate account, which allows you to EDIT your comments! It is free and easy to sign up for IntenseDebate and you can use the same account on any website that supports it, not just this blog (eg Serious Compacts, David Lee Tong, Rice High, etc). You also have control over your own comments, instead of them been at the mercy of the website that is hosting them.
