That must have been just about everything in the Ricoh stand. Wow indeed.

Good record keeping with the serials. Hope it can all be recovered.

Thank you for your notification.
Btw, are surveillance cameras recorded the license plates of a pickup truck?
Obviously at least two or three people fully loaded with equipment was involved or some kind of vehicle was used.

I wonder if the thieves hit any other booths. Seems odd to steal Pentax stuff because of the relatively small market for it.

wow, you would expect a place like that to have better security. That is a lot of equipment.

There is no question that the thief is either competitions conspiring together to stop Pentax from dominating the market or poor Pentax user lusting over the equipment

Presumably this was at PhotoDays this past weekend in Brussels, (I can't find anything about 'Photo Imaging').

One would definitely expect better security at a venue like this. Hopefully security cameras caught the crime in
action. Were any other vendors involved? Can't help but think this was an inside job, (someone with approved
access to the facility after hours).

Can't fault the thieves' excellent taste, if they haven't stolen anything else
Seriously, though, one would think a place like that had better security given the kind of event they were hosting.

Geez...that's more Pentax gear than the total in-store inventory of every Canadian photography retailer combined ( across 9.9 million sq km)! Wow!

Obviously the place is haunted. Who in their right mind would want to steal Pentax gear, other than a few hearty souls who walk the halls of Pentax past.

That's it. They simply couldn't get their Pentax gear through a retailer and looked for alternative sources.

I think I might have found part of the stolen equipment. Should I post here or contact via email?
