Thank goodness you had a set of lenses in two different vehicles. I don't know if that was intentional or not, but either way, it helped to mitigate the damage. Better to lose some of your lenses than all of your lenses, especially for such an important shoot.
Hopefully your lenses turn up. One thing working in your favour is that large format equipment is becoming fringe. We are a small community.
If you haven't already, please post at largeformatphotography.info also. The more eyes watching, the better.
I am very sorry about the loss of your lenses. :( I know they are like children and I hope that they are recovered. I have had 2 cameras stolen in the past and I can certainly appreciate your sorrow.
You have my sincerest sympathy on the loss. I hope that in spite of this, you and Paula can complete your assignment.
Best wishes to you both.
I am very sorry about the loss of your lenses..
Search te web, look on Ebay and some pages like it.
Do not lose hope, and bay some new lenses. Do let this incident cut your joy of photography..
this is a 2 year old thread. They've moved on and kept working since then.
