    Whoa Shame on the Thief.......... But double shame on the owner for not protecting these fine lens as if it where a new born child.
    Call me stupid but these lens would have been under LOCK AND KEY with IP camera pointed at them at all times like my Epic when I'm not using it! I can access the camera from my phone 24/7. But yeah this sucks. over 200K in lens WOW!

    With violence, everything can be stolen. Last year I had a lot of gear stolen... four guys and a simple knife. Probalby heavier weapons, but we wouldnīt check. They pretended to return gear from an existing producer company. And the security cameras show their faces clearly... and uselessly. Who are them? Nobody knows. Hundreds of thousands of look-alikes...
    Gear stolen in Buenos Aires, Argentina... may be in Ecuador, or Pakistan, or wherever. Producers renting it would not check serial numbers as itīs none of their business... and that when the gear HAS serial numbers. Lots of expensive cine gear does not carry a serial number today. Probably getting lower rental prices... so less interest in checking dubious gear.
    Nothing to do about it but regret the situation.
