I'd like to rent lenses for those special occasions when I need to get something good. Is there a rough estimate of how much an 80-200mm f/2.8 would/should cost to rent?

Here in Phx, it would run you $18.00/day for the tripod mount version, $25/day for the AF S version. It is also $25 for the 17-35, in case you wondered.
If your shop is closed on Sunday, you should be able to rent one on Sat. morning and return in Mon. morning for the 1 day price...
We did this with a fisheye for several weddings till I broke down and just bought it.

In Chicago at Helix they were getting 25USD/day,75/week with policies that gave you a long weekend possible if early return on Monday was possible.

The prices all seem reasonable and a weekend rental is just what I need.
