i paid for renting a 85mm 1.4G lens but i was given an 85mm 1.4D ( very old) but did the job.

Camera’s great. A couple of employees I dealt with were great.

The experience of dealing with the rental house was less than stellar. I would highly recommend renting from individual over this rental house even if it is slightly more money. They’ll be more understanding, friendly, and helpful.

Maybe they’ll straighten up their act and not toy with the customers and be more professional.

Incredibly easy pickup and return. Couldn’t have been smoother. Thanks!

The lenses were all ready for pick up when arrived, very quick and simple. The lenses themselves were great! Exactly what I needed for my weekend shoot. Thanks so much!

CSI was very accommodating and incredibly quick to respond. Elements beyond our control were messing with our shoot dates and CSI was very understanding.

Great fixture! Thanks!

Always great renting from CSI!

Flexible and easy renter. Let me rent from Manhattan and return in Brooklyn.

Helpful customer service and very easy to work with. Would recommend.

Renting from CSI was a great experience. I easily arranged pickup and dropoff logistics through this site and the lens was in perfect condition and gave our project the look I wanted. CSI was also super accommodating when our 1 week shoot turned into a 3 week shoot and I needed to extend the rental.

Great service, and I was able to pick up in Brooklyn and drop off in Manhattan, which made my day.
