Back in another century, we worked on another planet (named Sydney). A friend of ours who lived up in the 'Cross (if you're Yankee - think Times Square) had once done a good samaritan act for a lady of colourful background. We met her once at his pad. Over coffee... anyone who was his friend was a friend of hers, did we need any gear ? Didn't matter if it was specialised pro stuff... no worries... a couple of days and 30% of the retail price !

We declined the offer.... had all we needed, thank you.

The thieves will have little trouble selling the stuff. That they ignored the Canon gear suggests they were stealing to order.
