    Would it be appropriate/okay to post satisfaction of insurance claims here?

    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 just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.

    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.

    I'd like this thread to be mostly a list and other specific information geared to assisting in the recovery of lost or stolen equipment, focused enough to be a resource that gets indexed.

    Hello all,
    A friend of mine in Nashville had most of his camera gear stolen from his house yesterday. I don't know if it helps to get serial numbers out there, but here's what he lost:

    - 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 D300 sn. 3092400
    - Nikon 85mm lens sn. 421077
    - Nikon 35mm lens sn. 530047
    - Nikon 18-200mm lens sn. 2535564

    Thanks...hopefully some of it will turn 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?

    Inquiring minds want to learn the process of recovery.
    Good luck with recovery.

    Surely people should not be allowed to report the loss of Digital gear?
