a freind of mine on my other camera forum has posted a thread about his mates camera gear which has been stolen in a burglary. Now I know its near christmas and people might be out for a bargain but I wouldnt want anyone being caught out buying stolen gear. This is the post he put on P4A with all the serial numbers...
Details are below, but if anyone is offered any of this, please contact him via Flickr :
Gear list :
Canon 7D – serial number 1080700737
Canon 40D – serial number 0430102491
Canon EF 50mm f1.8 II – serial number 35332191
Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 L USM IS – serial number 00496194 (this lens had a hoya UV filter on it)
Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM – serial number 52501194 (this lens had a hoya or jessops UV filter on it)
Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5/5.6 L USM IS – serial number unknown as of yet. Canon did a cashback scheme and I sent the barcode with serial number to them. Am in the middle of tracking this down from the receipt.
Canon Speedlite 430EX flash
Canon BG-E2N battery grip – this was attached to the bottom of the Canon 40D camera, there were two batteries in it, one Canon and one unbranded.
Canon BG-E7 battery grip – this was attached to the bottom of the Canon 7D camera, there were two batteries in it, one Canon and one Hahnel.
Tracking the serial numbers down from the above from the receipts, no serials on boxes.
Accessories - continued
Hahnel HW 433 C80 Wireless Release (remote control for camera, I had broken the switch on the remote control and it was superglued so it couldn't move)
Cokin filter holder, and adapter rings
Cokin filters – Circular polariser, this was in a holder box, the box was broken.
Cokin sunlight, soft and a couple of other filters. These filters were in one filter holder box, the box had slots to hold multiple filters.
2 x 8gb Sankisk Extreme memory cards – these were in each of the cameras
1 x 4gb Sandisk Extreme memory card (these were in a transparent plastic blue memory card holder)
1 x 2gb Jessops memory card (these were in the transparent plastic blue memory card holder)
2 x 1gb Jessops memory card (these were in the transparent plastic blue memory card holder)
if anyone is offered any canon gear for what seems to be too good a price or is after buying any, might be an idea to print this post off to avoid getting caught...
hope my fellow mods and admin dont mind me posting this.
