If this happened to me I'd be tearing my hair out and screaming, so I have a great deal of sympathy for this poor guy. It is nice that Canon provided him the gear to do his job in Rio. Hopefully he had insurance. But I wonder, how big was the bag? $40,000? I carry around a D5 and three f/1.4 primes (24, 50, 85) and that is like 14 or 15 or maybe more pounds, and I carry it on my shoulder and it's worth about, what? $11K?

He must have been packing a ton of stuff. Hard to believe he didn't hear anything when the thief hefted this kit.

Wow. These are incredible updates! Can't wait for 30 minutes of 4K video and personally, I'm keen for flicker reduction, seems like an obvious thing for such a high end camera, and I am a true believer in 9 point AF. It kind of bridges the gulf between S and d25.

Thank you Nikon!

Very nice images and I like the story too. Good read!

My favorite photo is the last one. Very compelling.

This is not a composite image. It was wet and drippy outside, and I went to the kitchen door. This was a few years ago, before we added a deck, so beyond the door there was nothing but a mossy slab of concrete about 3 feet below the door. I was kinda looking at the moss, the water, the droplets, the leaves... then I saw my feet reflected in the door (which was full glass), and I started taking pictures, from inside, looking out through the door, at the wet moss, leaves, etc. I was kind of stunned at the ethereal result. This is one of my favorite self portraits.
