Has anybody here rented some of the big boys, and how much does it cost?

I've never rented, but I would add www.adoramarentals.com/ to the list of options. I don't know who's cheaper.

One thing to keep in mind is that big toys are hard to use, hopefully you have some experience with long lenses. Paying somewhat serious cash and coming back with not good shots is salt in the wound. You may need a bigger tripod, and read up a little about the pitfalls of using a big lens just to hedge you bets a little. Then post you great shots here!

I took the liberty of checking where you are - Midwest Photo in Columbus has a rental program.. the price difference may make it worth the drive over there..
I've rented several times from local camera stores - most bigger cities will have a pro quality store with new, used, rentals..
