    Cameron - I suggest your colleague fax this to state and federal police
    services and also second hand camera stores.

    I feel for your colleague.

    Lucky bloke... now he can change to canon gear without worrying about
    what to do with those extra incompatible lenses ;-)

    Poor guy, that must be bloody awful.

  6. My sympathies to the poor person, that's a pretty significant loss. On a
    lighter note the Canon comment was a bit funny.

  7. nah, i'm a canon kinda guy (of course nikon is also great, just my choice)
    but there's nothing funny about losing that much gear... *ouch*.

    i'm assuming it was insured, but huge hassle to go through.

    Well 1/2 of it would fit in your shirt pocket ........ it's a huge pain in
    the backside but it's the two lenses and digi that make up 90% of the value.

    Ohhhh, know what you mean... I was insured... for an O/S trip... didn't stop
    some prick from stealing it, putting me thru HOURS of crap with the cops,
    crying for the next 2 days and then finding out the insurance weren't gonna
    pay either :-(

    K ~ now THAT sucks!
    Krissy, Oct 4, 2003
  11. why wouldn't they cough up? fine print or clause? pls let us know so we know
    who not to insure with ourselves...

    Their (the insurance company I used) underwriter went broke so there was a
    big legal argument over who should get what. I didn't even know what an
    underwriter was until this happened to me. As far as I was concerned I had
    bought the policy from ??? whoever and they should have paid costs &
    expenses (it was more than a stolen camera). I'll look for some paperwork so
    I can tell you which company it was.

    You brought your insurance through a broker, rather than directly dealing with
    the insurance company?

    And the broker went, well, um, broke, hah, that's a joke... ?

    Is that what happened?

    That sucks bigtime how business's can weasle out of their obligations under
    these circumstances. Ansett comes to mind...

  14. No, he said it was the underwriter, not the broker....
