A sad story...
Recently I had a bag of equipment go missing from my office. The bag contained my 3 month old 1D-X, a 24-105 f/4L lens, my infrared-converted 10D and a 15-35mm f/2.8L lens plus a few other bits and pieces.
I'm not a professional photographer and the place where all the camera equipment was stored is a back room to which people visiting our premises would have no access. Yet the bag went missing and we are 99% sure it isn't hidden in a 'safe place' somewhere else in the building.
We found a "lost" person wandering around very quietly and suspiciously in this area of the building last week and believe this person or a similar individual may have tiptoed in at some point, grabbed a bag at random and got very lucky.
I'm checking insurance etc and when 100% certain it is definitely lost (the store room has a ton of junk in it which needs clearing out later this month), will report to police as lost / possibly stolen.
Anyway, my question to you all is: how easy would it be for the 1D-X to be tracked if it is indeed stolen and being sold on?
I have the serial number from the EXIF data on the images and the receipt from MapCamera in Tokyo where I bought it in February. It's not the most common camera and reselling would have a limited possible market.
Any suggestions / advice welcome.
