Re: D800e with 24-70 on a vacation in London?

I am the one who got the big problems (or my wife or friends) in London (See reference above)

I have to say my experiences of London or my wife's were related to more valuable items than a camera. I have walked in touristic areas with visible photo gear in London and did not have a problem. The problems happened when walking in residential areas and carrying other valuables or cars. This is when my experience of London proved dangerous.

As an example to the contrary as we also discussed Paris in the forum, I felt Paris was less dangerous for your health but much more prone to pickpockets and stolen gear. Thieves have literally infested Paris.

In any case, I would take my camera as I would be too frustrated not to have it in such places. And if someone steals it or threatens me to take it, I just have a special insurance that covers it as well as other valuables just while I travel, independantly from my regular insurance. So who cares (just annoying for the missed photos...).

Never make a claim on your regular insurance or your premium will fly or your insurer will not insure you again...
