Good news is she said she originally planed to borrow my 50L too.. but her trip was delayed..

BTW, maybe off topic, can anyone try to suggest insurance program for photo gears?

Cool story

On the insurance, see if you can add a rider to your homeowners policy...

When it ceases to be fun, it will be time to walk away

State Farm has a great policy for camera gear.

Damn, the dude had a fake gun?! I wonder what that was about...

Glad to hear he caught the guy, though.

Willing to shed more light on this?
Just send their agents couple emails, not replied yet.
Do you know will they recognize the value of what I claim if something happen? I try to get a quote for renter insurance, they just let name my property value, nothing specific.

Maybe I need a detailed discussion with their agents.

Yes

Call a local State Farm agent and explain that you have camera equipment that you want to insure.
The policy insures against theft, damage and even if you left it in a cab.
I just got mine 6 months ago.

You may want to do a search on this on the forum as that is where I heard about it.
My girls son plays baseball and a teammates father was an agent.
That made it easy as I asked him and eventually went forward with it.

The other insurance companies don't have what SF does.

Great policy.
