It's been quite a while since I've been active on the forums or in the photography world in general. I used to do it full time, but I've since dedicated my time to school. I don't get out and shoot much, but it's still nice to have my camera around from time to time.
On Halloween, I went out of town and my house was broken into. The thieves stole my gear bag...which had my 7D, 17-55 2.8, and my 580 EXII in it. They got plenty of other stuff too, but this was the most sentimental to me.
I have long since given up my equipment insurance and my gear is not covered under any type of insurance (renter's / homeowner's / etc). So my question to all of you is what are your experiences with stolen gear? I attached a list of everything, including serial numbers, to the police report. Where do thieves usually fence this sort of stuff? Craigslist? Pawn shops? Ebay? If anyone has any experience, I'd be happy to hear about it!
I've already reported everything as stolen to CPS and I registered my camera as stolen on stolencamerafinder.com
