I'm an amateur astronomer and photographer and I was robbed of two Nikon lenses at the Bronx Zoo on June 13,2007. Does any Shutterbug.net member have any other ideas of things that I can do to try to increase the chances of finding my stolen lenses. I have notified Ebay, sent the serial numbers with police reports to Nikon, put the serial numbers on stolen property websites, sent letters with the serial numbers and police reports to pawnshops, I have sent the information to camera dealers and repair shops in the New York City area, and have driven myself nuts in the process. While, I realize that the chances of getting my stolen lenses back are probably slim, I would like to make as many people and businesses who deal with photography issues know that my lenses are stolen. If any other Shutterbug.net member has a "brainstorm" and thinks of any other productive things that I can do, I would appreciate you posting those suggestions for me. Thank You, Astronomer, Syracuse, NY
Why didn't post the lenses and serial numbers in this thread? The more places you list them the better chances of recovering them, though your insurance company will give you replacement value if you were insured.
I don't think it's a good idea to leave your nikon lenses where they could be stolen, any way next time you should call Cole Harrison Insurance and get them insured agaist damage and theft, that way in case you will always have your expensive photo equipment protected.
