L lenses are like wives to some people - would you rent your wife out?

Seriously, just a general Q - if I rent somebody a lens, how do I make sure I get it back? What if it gets damaged? I think many people would rather not rent out their lenses. Any views?

I am sure ppl rather not to rent out. But if there are enterprising photog around, they could rent out the L lens taking desposits base on 100% of the market price :D

However, I beg to differ from Jeff49er's comments.

The only reason why I would say this is that a very kind soul allowed me to borrow the 1Ds with a WA lens without any cost. However, the only agreement is that if anything were to happen to the cam, I would take it down to canon and pay for the repair. This has happened twice to me so far.
