More Lenses by Mail

A new online mail delivery lens site has entered the arena, which is great news for those of us who were on the lookout for some of the specialty lenses that always seemed to be out of stock at RentGlass.com. Ziplens offers almost exactly the same service as RentGlass… but at least at the moment, has most of their lenses in stock. Plus, and added bonus, you can reserve out of stock lenses that will be shipped to you upon return. I like that system much better than Rentglasses notification system, since the few times I’ve been around when the In Stock email alert came in, the lens was back out again by the time I added it to my basket.

I’ve got a couple lenses on their way to me now, so I’ll let you know how it goes.

    Very cool. I had no idea such a thing existed. It would also be a good way to “test drive” a lens you were thinking of buying.
