in OC there are,
Calumet, Samy's and Pro Photo Connection. In LA there are more too. There's a Samy's up there, and Sunset photo (i think they are still around), and some more in long beach and south bay areas.
the three in OC are within ten minutes of each other, and they all rent gear too. Samy's probably has the most gear in the store (overall), but they are all very well stocked with nikon glass. Pro photo even has some used stuff too.
