  1. Canon 300mm f/4L IS telephoto lens


    telephoto-lens-rental

    The Canon 300mm f/4L IS telephoto lens is an incredible lens for sports, wildlife, and outdoor portraiture. The extremely long telephoto is an EF mount, and will work with both full frame and crop factor cameras.

    The lens, while not pocket-sized, is a pretty manageable size and weight when compared to other professional lenses in this focal range.  It close focuses better than any 300mm lens in Canon’s lineup. This makes it possibly the best lens ever made for faux-macro work like dragonflies, small mammals, and other tiny, skittish things.

    The built-in image stabilization makes a huge difference for photo and video on a lens this long. A retractable hood is built-in.The lens is exceptionally sharp even wide open, and backgrounds fall off to a beautiful bokeh. It can be fitted with our 1.4x teleconverter to function as a 420mm f/5.6 lens. Like many L-series Canon lenses, it accepts 77mm front filters.

    This lens has an EF mount and 77mm front filter threads.

  3. 24mm T1.5 Rokinon Cine Lens


    24-mm-cine

    The Rokinon (or Samyang) 24mm T1.5 is a fast prime lens with cinema gears for Canon EF and EF-S mounts.  The lens is fully manual, with focus and declicked aperture controls on the barrel. The lens is wide without being extreme, covering a field of view of approximately 74 degrees horizontally on full-frame cameras.

    This lens matches well with the other prime Rokinon cine lens rentals we offer. It accepts 77mm front filters.

  4. Canon 35mm f/2 IS USM Lens


    canon-35mm-f2-milwaukee

    The Canon 35mm f/2.0 IS USM EF prime photo lens is the updated version of Canon’s 35mm f/2.0 lens, with improved resolution and image stabilization added. This lens works with both full-frame and crop-factor cameras, which includes every DSLR Canon has ever made.

    35mm is a useful, slightly wide lens on a full-frame camera like a Canon 5D, and a “normal” lens on an APS-C sized crop factor camera. The image stabilization and high speed make it very useful indoors, for shooting photo as well as video.

    The lens has 67mm front threads.

  5. Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 EF Ultrawide Lens


    14mm-wide-lens

    The Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 lens fits all Canon digital cameras and anything else with an EF or EF-S mount. 14mm is a great length for dramatic wide angles. This is the widest fullframe lens Rokinon offers.  It’s also a very useful wide on smaller sensors like APS-C, as well as smaller sensors like on Blackmagic and Panasonic cameras.

    It’s not particularly fisheyed, but there is some mustache distortion, which can be addressed in post processing. The lens is manual focus only, but focusing on the fly isn’t much of an issue with a lens this wide.

    This is the photo version of the lens, with a clicking aperture ring and no focus gears. We also have the cinema version, for video shooters. The lens hood is fixed, so round filters aren’t an option.

    This lens is our most popular ultrawide lens rental for photographers.

  6. Rokinon 85mm T/1.5 Cine Prime Lens


    rent-rokinon-85mm-t1-5

    Rokinon adapted their prime full-frame photo lenses for video shooters and created a revolution in affordable cinema optics.  Optically, this EF 85mm T/1.5 is the same lens at their 85mm f/1.4, but with a de-clicked aperture and teeth on the focus ring to accept any standard follow focus. This is the best-reviewed of all their cine primes, and the fastest long lens in our inventory.  Wide open, we think it holds its own against the Canon CN-E 85mm, which is incredible at this price point.

    This is our new go-to lens for interviews, and indispensable for events in low light. Even photo shooters can get some great images out of it, although if you prefer an autofocus prime, look at the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8.

  7. Canon 50mm f/1.4 EF Prime Lens


    Canon EF 50mm 1-4

    Canon has it figured out with the 50mm f/1.4.  This all-purpose 50mm fixed lens is great for all kinds of shooting, including interiors and low light.  It’s very flattering as an interview or portrait lens, especially when mounted on a crop factor camera.

    We love this Canon 50mm at f/1.8 and beyond for tack-sharp focus. Many photographers will claim it even outperforms the venerable Canon 50mm f/1.2L at that aperture. It has 58mm front threads, like most of the Canon primes in this class.

  8. Canon 40mm f/2.8 EF STM Prime Lens


    canon-40mm

    Canon’s tiny 40mm f/2.8 lens gives full-frame coverage in a lens that’s less than an inch thick. The STM designation means it’s ready for autofocus in both photo and video. It accepts 52mm filters, and close-focuses to one foot.

    While primes like the 50mm f/1.8 and 35mm f/2.0 are faster, the 40mm f/2.8 is a great lens choice when you need a small size, or video autofocus.

  9. Zeiss 100mm T2.1 CP2 Lens with EF Mount


    Zeiss 100mm T2.1 CP.2 Lens

    The Zeiss CP2 100mm T2.1 lens with EF mount is an excellent long lens on both fullframe and super 35 sensors.  Zeiss CP2s have become a standard for film and television productions.  The Compact Prime family offer full-frame coverage for DSLRs and speedboosters, and are equally at home on cinema cameras with EF mounts and DSLRs.  They are most popularly paired with the Sony FS7 and Canon C300.

    The fourteen-blade iris makes for near-perfect bokeh and Zeiss’ T* coating reduces reflections and flare.  Zeiss CP2s are fully manual, and barrel sizes are matched for easy lens changes, even behind a mattebox and follow focus. All our CP2 lenses have imperial markings (in feet).

    Our Zeiss CP2 lenses can be reserved and rented as a kit. We don’t accept advance reservations for individual lenses, but you can pick them up same-day with an appointment.

    Insurance or a deposit is required for this rental.

  10. Zeiss 35mm T2.1 CP2 Lens with EF Mount


    cp2-lens-35mm-ef-milwaukee

    The Zeiss CP2 35mm T2.1 lens with EF mount is an excellent all-purpose lens, and reads as a “normal” focal length on super 35 and APS-C sized sensors.  Zeiss CP2s have become a standard for film and television productions.  The Compact Prime family offer full-frame coverage for DSLRs and speedboosters, and are equally at home on cinema cameras with EF mounts and DSLRs.  They are most popularly paired with the Sony FS7 and Canon C300.
