The LensRental Chess Set would be the perfect gift from one loyal camera brand user to another. Whether their preferences are for Nikon or Canon cameras, these two individual photographers would be able to battle out their preference on the relatively safe battlefield that is the chessboard. Of course, it would all be for fun, right?

Designed by Roger and Aaron, the LensRental Chess Set features classic Canon chess pieces being pitted against modern Nikon lenses. I'm impressed at the creativity of this board, especially since the classic white-and-black player colors are being adhered to without compromising the camera branding themselves. What is even more impressive is that these are not small replicas, but actual-sized, functional camera lenses.
