    Mate, I feel your pain, but I have to ask why you would leave your much loved gear in your car?

    You live in Westmead, , and I live in a small country town, but I leave Jack Sh!t in my car.
    Cheers

    I hope you recover it, but as said above, I leave nothing of value in my car, ever.

    Oh, Donnnnnnnnn-yyyyyy!!!!! That's is just too much to bear.

    I've got nothing to say, only that I've had (less expensive though still valuable) gear stolen from my house. Only a long time has healed that loss.

    Talk to the hock shops in Parramatta. Your equipment should be unusual to them, but not necessary the thieves.
    Bugga, 2012 can only get better now.

    Sorry to hear this bad news.

    Keep an eye on eBay. And gumtree ( gumtree is free to advertise And not a lot of id required )

    Hope it turns up for you


    And pawn shops definitely .... Make up a flyer for them of what's missing, with pics if possible to make it easy for them to identify them.

    Condolences again

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    Ahh man, really sorry!

    I read the thread title and my heart sank. Ive experienced this feeling not once but twice, both big $$ items too so i can feel your pain.

    Hope it all works out mate and you get your gear back.


    Insurance?

    As has been expressed by others, I'm sorry to hear of your loss.

    Please, though, do not leave anything valuable in your car. (I presume you had it out of sight [ie, in the boot or covered]).

    I maintain a policy of not leaving anything on display in my car, and I am loathe to even leave my gear in the boot when the car is unattended.

    I hope you can recover your gear. Some of it is fairly specialised in nature and perhaps may not have the appeal to be offloaded illegally.
