Re: Thieves in St. Petersburg camera and lens worst thing to steal
In reply to Riki, Jul 23, 2013

I cant help but think that its a bit silly (aside from the morality and criminal issue, just thinking logistically) to steal a camera / lens, even more for someone to buy such equipment without knowing where it is coming from (verifiable purchase).

The serial numbers effectively mean that the camera  / lens can never be serviced by a camera manufacturer authorized centre.

And they are not like stereo equipment /phones, changing a connection/ diode here or there, but specialized parts requirements and calibration.

Darned silly seems to me.
