If you want to lecture me about security and photo equipment, save it. I know. I know. I know. I know.
Anyway, I am currently down several lenses and a strobe thanks to some light-fingered humanoid.
Among the confirmed missing:
nikon 14-24 2.8 serial number 247093 value about 1800
nikon 28-85 3.5 serial number 2109348 value about 300
nikon 50 1.8 serial number not known right now value 150?
nikon 105 1.8 serial number 236510 value... 600
nikon sb600 serial number not known right now value 300
So, why does this big dummy not know the serial numbers? Because the memory card with all the serial numbers was IN THE STOLEN BAG, thankyouverymuch.
All these were in a light blue Mountainsmith fanny pack with a gold carabiner on the top, and my last name, RHODES written in sharpie on the strap. Also my business cards are in there and assorted cables, remotes, batteries and pocket lint. Maybe a roll of film or two as well.
A report has been filed with APD. I am sans insurance right now, of course. I am hoping my good karma will come through, but failing that, please get the word out to any photographers in the Asheville area, I WILL make it worth their while to get any of these items back, and a good lead for the police.
If you are in possession of these items, and don't know what to do with them. Listen, dude. I just want the stuff back. I will ask no questions with a return. No cops. No baseball bats. None of my wacked out Roller Derby friends visiting you after dark. I promise.
