    Which one would YOU steal?

    So check this out... I was at work preping for a shoot I am doing tonight and got called into the bosses office at short notice.

    I did not have time to pack everything up, so I locked a few key items into my draw... and left out on my desk an EF 24-105L (lens) and an EF 24-105L (cup-that-looks-like-a-lens).

    When I got back to my desk... SOMEONE HAD STOLEN THE CUP!

    Maybe the borrower had his cup runneth over and thought better of it .
    With all the camera gear around he may have worried about being caught on the hidden one.
    The one next to the biscuits he couldnt find to go with the cup .

    Hmmm, I would have lifted the desk.

    Three reasons for that.

    (a) Thermal mugs do nothing for a good cold beer.

    (b) Canon lens or Canon mug, you still don't get a sharp pic from either.

    (c) We need a new desk here.
