    I like this suggestion!
    If your friends see you as camera rental, let them pay for the rental, if they don't want to pay, they'll back away.
    I may lend a lens but not the body. Anyway this will depend on who's borrowing.

    Your friends think highly of you.

    Never ask them to pay camera rental rate. You should not turn them down. One of these days, much later in life - one of the people who borrow the camera from you may be in a position to do you a big favour; or determine something that affects you greatly. I'm not kidding. Don't be so money grubbing and calculative. It pays rich dividends to be slightly generous.
    same thoughts here... true friends are worth more than equipment.

If casual friends, 'false' friends aka parasites/sponges/cheapos, pure & simple answer is NO. Its the same for lending money or other valuables/precious possessions. Real friends would know the limits & probably the answer even before asking To me cameras are but just equipments that are meant to be used & can be easily replaced, but true friends are hard to find & may never be replaced.

    yup... I'll lend to good friends, but to cheapos, I'll just say no.

    yup, for those worried about damage to equipment, DSLR is generally pretty tough. can't say the same for lenses... if I'm lending, I might just put my cheaper lens on e.g. 18-55 kit (this possible because I avoid letting everybody know I have some of the more expensive lenses--e.g. I won't post a picture of the lens on Facebook for everyone to see).
