Many people here on APUG have suffered theft. I had most of my equipment (two EOS bodies, three lenses, flash and camera bag) stolen on Boxing Day 2003. Nowhere near $200,000, but it was very sentimental, and that's what hurts most.
I think there was a Hassy H3 and most of the Hassy system lenses in the theft (he also has a keen analogue interest in cine). I cannot get my head around why anybody would leave such a massive amount of top-shelf equipment in a car on the street overnight. The revelation that nothing was insured is just too horrible for me to contemplate: it must be hell for the man who has criss-crossed Australia with a monster load of glass and metal. I think trying to pass off a Hasselblad H3 and uber-expensive system lenses as "unwanted gifts" at Cash Converters will be the downfall of the thieves.
