Would love to get it back. Have offered $1500 reward locally, which is I'm sure more than the pawn shop would pay. Bill Barber

Bill, I am really bummed to hear about the equipment loss. Did someone pop the trunk and lift it? A few years back when I drove a 4-runner, someone bashed my rear window and lifted some stuff pretty close to where you lost your gear.
I'll keep an eye on Craigslist and ebay, as I am sure you will too. Maybe a chance it will turn up.
I think we should stick to stolen equipment and posts directly related. If the equipment is recovered that should be made clear, but insurance claims, well wishes, idle curiosity, etc are not directly relevant.

- Leica M6 sn. 1739371
- Leitz Summicron 50/2 sn. 3198890
- Leitz Summicron 35/2 sn. 2275323
- Nikon S2 sn. 6139904
- Nikon 50/1.4 with the S2 sn. 350821
- Nikon F100 sn. 2273591
- Nikon D700 sn. 2260234

- Nikon 85mm lens sn. 421077
- Nikon 35mm lens sn. 530047
- Nikon 18-200mm lens sn. 2535564
Thanks...hopefully some of it will turn up
The Nikon 35mm sn 530047 and the 50mm Summicron sn 3198890 turned up.
What does "turned up" mean? Were they misplaced by the owner and not stolen? Did the Police or some other source find them and return to owner or use as evidence for prosecution?

Good luck with recovery.
Surely people should not be allowed to report the loss of Digital gear?
