Subject: STOLEN NIKON/NIKKOR LENSES
I just joined Outdoor Photographer's forum in the last day or two. I joined because I have had a long interest in photography, amateur astronomy, searching for life in outerspace (SETI) etc.
I was robbed at the Bronx Zoo on June 13, 2007 and stolen from me were two Nikon/Nikkkor camera lenses. I'll be giving a description of each lens, it's serial number and the police report information. I was wondering if any other Outdoor Photographer forum members could also give me any other suggestions as to what else I could do to try to increase the chances of finding my stolen lenses. I have notified Ebay, sent letters with the police reports to New York City area pawn shops, posted the serial numbers on stolen property websites, notifed camera dealers and repair shops in the New York City area, and probably driven myself nuts in the process. It is a very drawn out process.
Anyway, here goes with the serious information about each stolen lens.
The first lens that was stolen is a 24mm F2.8 AF-D Nikon/Nikkor lens. The lens has a clear uv filter on it. The lens also has two black plastic Nikon lenscaps, a black metal Nikon HN-1 lenshood and a black elastic band that holds onto the front cap when the lens is being used. THE SERIAL NUMBER OF THIS STOLEN LENS IS 450622.
The second lens that was stolen is a 50mm F1.4 AF-D Nikon/Nikkor normal lens. This lens also has a clear uv filter on it, two black plastic Nikon lenscaps, a Nikon HR-2 rubber lenshood and a black elastic band that holds onto the front lenscap when the lens is being used. NOTE: THIS LENS IS STILL UNDER WARRANTY SINCE IT WAS PURCHASED AT MQ CAMERA CENTER IN SYRACUSE, NY ON MARCH 2, 2007. THE SERIAL NUMBER OF THIS STOLEN LENS IS US6034518.
I filed police reports with both Bronx Zoo security and with the 52nd precinct of the New York Police Department. THE POLICE REPORT NUMBER IS 2007-052-06262.
If any Outdoor Photographer forum member has any other ideas or suggestions, please reply back to me on this site with your comments. In closing, Thank You to Outdoor Photographer's forums and moderators for letting me post this information.
