Don't buy it, Rent it!
For example, the somewhat new Nikon TC20e III retails on Amazon for $650. I can rent that same item from an online rental such as borrowlenses.com for $46 for 1 week. This fall, I am hoping to head to either to Yellowstone or stay a little closer to home and spend some time at Badlands National Park and Custer State Park in South Dakota. Since I'll have to pay an arm and a leg for gas to get out there and back it only makes sense to rent the Nikon TC20e III rather than buying it.
If you are in the same boat as I am renting is a fantastic option! Online sources such as borrowlenses.com and lensrentals.com are only two options out there. Be sure to check out your local camera store as well.
