    I will be in Indianapolis for the Formula One race on June 17th. Dose anyone know of a shop who rents the 300 2.8 near the track?

    The only place I know that rents is Robert's Camera. It's downtown Indy about 15- 20 minutes from the track depending on traffic. For the 300 2.8 it's $60 a day or $180 a week.

    There's also Cord Camera but I'm not sure they rent. Not a big fan of Cord stores myself anyway. Roberts has been around forever..probably your best shot.

    Shops always require a deposit of the replacement cost of the lens. That protects them in case someone thinks about not returning the lens or trashes it or something.

    RE: Deposit

    Most rental places will accept a credit card with a credit limit in excess of the deposit amount. They'll run a copy of the credit card when you pickup the rental.

    No charges are made to the card unless you damage, or don't return, the rental. I don't think the deposit is counted against your credit limit, unless they make the charge for damage or loss.

    Some companies may offer insurance at an additional cost, but I'm not aware of any, explicitly.
