Beware of buying used equipment

One of our members, Gerald Knight, recently lost some equipment to theft. He writes;

I had my camera with flash and a lens nicked today.

I thought that perhaps it would be useful to post the information on the club site and any other club sites as it may prevent the thief/ves from trapping someone into purchasing stolen property.

The camera is a Canon EOS 5D with 580EX speedlight flash and a Canon 100-400 zoom lens f 4.5-5.6 IS.

Camera serial number is 1531004622. I’ll need to wait till Tues to obtain the other serial numbers from my insurers.

I dont know of any other way to make the information generally available.
