Lensrentals Chess Set


Here at Lensrentals, we know the major problem most of our customers face: You still appreciate fine camera equipment, but you’re just tired of taking photographs right now. You want something different. Something you can share with your friends, perhaps. Something subtle and understated, but demonstrating your appreciation for fine photography equipment.

You’ve probably thought (and who hasn’t) “I wonder what the guys at Lensrentals do in their spare time, when they’re tired of taking photographs?”

Why we play Chess, of course!! Now you can play just like we do: rent the Official Lensrentals Chess Set! It’s just the thing to improve attendance at your next local Photography Club meeting. Now you can finally answer the age old question “Which is better? Canon or Nikon?”

The complete 32 piece set includes 70-200 f/2.8 pawns, 600mm f/4 Kings and 500mm f4 Queens, 400mm f/2.8 Bishops, 300mm f/2.8 Knights, and 200mm f/2.0 Rooks in black (Nikon) and white (Canon). If you don’t already have an appropriate size chess board we will throw in a complete set of 32 white and 32 black stick-on 12" square vinyl tiles so you can create your own.

BTW – all pieces have Image Stabilization (AKA Vibration Reduction) to make sure every move is smooth.

You’ll have to call us for an accurate shipping quote, but shipping should range between $1,100 and $2,400 round trip depending on your location.

Please note: If after renting the Lensrentals Chess Set you decide you just have to have one of your very own (or perhaps need a gift for that special photographer in your life), they are available for purchase for $151,202.17. But move quickly, this won’t last long at this price. Once the Canon Mk II Supertelephoto lenses are released the price will increase substantially.

Special Offer: Purchase the Lensrentals Chess Set before September 1st and we will include at no extra charge a Lensrentals Let Biogons be Biogons T-shirt, a $13 value!!!!
