Nice to see a happy ending to a story like this. About 14 years ago my house was burglarized while we were out of town and my whole kit was stolen - two FD bodies and all my lenses (as well as the electronics from out of the house). The cameras and lenses were never recovered, but at least my renter's insurance covered my loss and I got new cameras and lenses.

Some primes, some zooms, some Ls, some bodies and they all play nice together.
Forty years of shooting and still learning.

That's an awesome thing to hear happen! That's an extremely selfless thing to do.

As far as her story of the lens "dropping" I wouldn't want to be the one to buy a lens that fell out of a car onto the parking lot.

I'm surprised they didn't reverse the car over it :confused:

This is great news. This is so cool the way this worked out. I sure hope the lens still works after all it's gone throught. Especially falling on the ground. You did good Mike!! ;)
