This inspired me to check what I have insured.  I need to add two things... So maybe there might be a small silver lining in that you are reminding others to get their stuff under the umbrella.

I feel very lucky after all. Expensive camera gear can be replaced through times.

All my kids special moments photos in backup external HDs are MUCH-MUCH more important. Both units seem to be untouched  ;). I'm glad I mounted them behind the table.

Thanks gents

@ mackguyver - I'm keeping all the options open at this moment. Will have more clearer direction and approach in my future gear next couple weeks. CONGRATS on your new toy  :)....I'm sure that 11-24 is fun to shoot with. Still waiting to see your photos  ;)

Hi Dylan.
It is good to hear from you again, you seem to be in a positive place with this, keep it up and you should get past this in short order and be moving forwards again.

Cheers, Graham.

Thanks Graham.

I can see myself browsing on CanonPriceWatch soon. Will be a big list:
1. 2nd 1Dx, since I have no intention adding the new S or R to my kit. 1Dx II will be costly.
2. 24-70 II, 85L II hoping for tiny discount on new 11-24  ;)

Since I lost half of my Canon DSLR gear, I was forced to shoot with just 12MP camera + 55mm lens... ;)

Sorry to hear about your loss.  Just wonder, I use my home owners to protect equipment I seldom use (rest is on a rider), why was only the 70-200 covered?  Is it because you use the equipment professionally or is there a dollar limit to the policy?  Then was the 70-200 covered (and the rest not)?

I know it may be painful to rehash this but your experience could help protect some of us as we learn from your experience.

Thanks everyone for best wishes. It was quite busy for me last couple weeks.

@ RGF - I have 1Dx, 200mm, 400mm, 70-200 on home insurance. When I bought the 2nd 5D III, used 85L, and new 16-35 f4 IS I didn't add those items onto policy. It was a mistake from my end.

Anyways, the house now feel little more secured. We added additional glass doors to all main and patio doors, additional glass frames to all windows. New adjustments through alarm company. All these features would add more resistance to break-in(HOPE NOT). The alarm will be in notification mode when the 1st layer glass door or glass frame get broken.

I'm now can focus rebuying my gear back.

Thanks guy.

Got broke-in last week, while our family was on mini vacation. Looks like they went through my office 1st, where all my camera gear been stored. Bodies and lenses were stored in Lowpro 200 roller - that was an easy for them.

Gear I lost:
5d iii
16-35 f4 IS
24-70 f2.8 II
70-200 f2.8 IS II
85L II
600EX flashes QTY: 3
The only insured item through house insurance was 70-200.

Working with the home insurance agent right now. Will see...

Sounds like they were in-out within 5mins, the cops were there within 10mins. I been live here for last 10yrs, nothing happens until now.

No, because is not FF. I want a small body that can deliver high ISO shots. Built-in EVF is a must for me.

1Dx & 400f/2.8 II @ f/2.8

I guess it won't be long now & this thread will be somewhat defunct, everyone will be posting to the 1Dx II & 5Ds/R threads.

Still, until then, the 1Dx has been without a doubt the most satisfying piece of Camera gear I've ever used.


This one with 200mm f2 IS @ f2

I ended up with a new canon 1dx for $4700 usa model and rebought a new 24-70 2.8 for now. Either way I made money and decided to save and think about what I want and see what else Canon announcesthis year. I was really hoping for the M3 to come here but will see what else comes to the usa later this year.

Give a7s + FE 35mm + FE 55mm combo a try  ;)

My 1st DSLR combo was 40d + 50mm f1.4. Bought it used through a friend for $400.

My most recent accessories to support current 400mm and up coming 600mm:
