Default Lens rental

I am going to New Zealand July first and was thinking of renting a lens for my Nikon D90. Maybe a 600 mm. First thoughts on the lens choice (I have 70-300 and others already) and I am in Houston so recommendations on outfit to rent from? All info appreciated

I would get something in wide angle as well as super zoom. What do you intend to use for your walk around lens?

Iíve used lensrentals.com in the past and have been very pleased with them.

I went with Photo Rental Source here in Houston. I go by this Friday and pick up the lens(Nikon 200-500 f5.9) and then head to New Zealand this Sunday and try it out.
