Stolen Kit

Hi Guys,

I need your help if you are able, I have had my camera bag stolen in Barcelona Spain.

In it I had a K7 with battery grip, s/n 3378203
DA*16-50 f2.8 s/n 9016167
DA* 60-250 f4 s/n 9223112
Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6 EX s/n 1015644
plus some all sorted filters, batteries, ect.

If you see anything suspicious on any sites at all could you please let me via the messaging on this forum. My K7 does have a loose hot shoe and a big dent on the bottom left hand corner when looking at it from the rear, though difficult to see if the battery grip is on. The files from my K7 unless they remove it will Say "Chris Ide Cideway Imagery" in the copyright information.

Hopefully if we see something we we be able to bring the thieves to justice.

Many thanks,

Chris "Cideway" Ide.

European camera thieves strike an Aussie again.

Last similar K-7 and lens report was here:

The advice Adam gave then is still relevant - it may be useful put your stolen gear details up on the serial number database here:

Well good that you have DA*60-250 in it, they don't show up a lot on used market, so easy to find.

All the best in locating this gear. Hopefully this thief isn't much into photography...

Bad news. Bad situation.
I sympathize with you. It must be a terrible feeling.
Also check out a thread in General Talk that is titled "Stolen Camera Finder".
Good luck and I hope you eventually get it back.
