Ughh why would you say that.... about the 16-35 I hadnt even thought about that..... we dont even know if it will be as good as this 17-40 was. Sigh
Apologies. Just trying to create a silver lining for your cloud. It's probably too soon in the grieving process for that.
Buying insurance (just in time!) in your case however was a very wise move, and will allow you to do something most photographers in your situation couldn't...get yourself back in action (make yourself whole again) with minimal cost and hassel. Don't forget to check rental coverage if needed, in the case that your claim may take more than a few of days to pay. Best of luck,
