Canon lens hire

We stock a wide range of Canon mount lenses, not just from Canon themselves but also from Sigma and Tokina.

The range includes varying focal lengths from 8mm to 800mm.  We have split the lenses up into groups above to make selection easier.

If you are having trouble finding what you'd like, please do call us - we are always only too happy to help!

EF and EF-S explained

First introduced in 1987, the EF lens mount is the standard lens mount on the Canon EOS family of SLR film and digital cameras. EF stands for "Electro-Focus": automatic focusing on EF lenses is handled by a dedicated electric motor built into the lens. Mechanically, it is a bayonet-style mount, and all communication between camera and lens takes place through electrical contacts; there are no mechanical levers or plungers.

In 2003, Canon introduced the EF-S lens mount, a derivative of the EF mount that is strictly for digital EOS cameras with a 1.6x crop released after 2003. EF lenses can be mounted on EF-S bodies, albeit with cropped image, while EF-S lenses cannot be mounted on EF bodies (5D MkII).

I put average for condition of equipment for one reason only the batterys supplied had a very bad charge rate and this was an issue for me. You should replace batteries with new ones more often. Also when I booked I wanted a 5d mk 3 or mk 2 but none where in stock. And you had almost no lenses I wanted at all. Maybe this was bad timing but could be an issue if your stock levels are low. The staff are fantastic Amy was especially helpful no issue at all with you service I would rate the service as excellent in every way. Just availability of cameras and lenses was an issue.
Sorry about the battery Anthony - we actually measure charge rates when equipment comes back and I'm not sure how that one slipped through the net. We do have a huge stock of equipment but I'm afraid an unusually busy weekend combined with only a day's notice meant we didn't have much left! If you can give us a bit more notice next time, we should have what you need!
