    Morning all,

    My best mate's dad is a professional photographer (primarily wildlife), who had a fair bit of gear stolen a couple of weeks ago. Everything was serialised and fully insured, and given his relationship with NPS it will all be replaced in no time. I'm posting the list of gear here to hopefully prevent any unsuspecting OCAUer from buying stolen gear on eBay, Gumtree, Facebook Marketplace, etc. If the seller doesn't seem to have a clue about the gear, or the pricing doesn't seem quite right, best not to proceed with the purchase. I bought a stolen camera back in the day, which I voluntarily handed over to the police, and looking back at the whole exchange with the seller there were red flags all over the place (couldn't answer basic questions about the camera, couldn't remember where he'd bought it, etc.).

    The list is as follows:
    • Nikon AF-S 105mm f/2.8 VR Micro-Nikkor
    • Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-14EII
    • Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-17EII
    • Nikon Speedlite SB-910
    • Nikon Speedlite SB-5000
    • Nikon 800mm f/5.6 FL ED VR
    • Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR
    • Nikon 180-400mm f/4E VR TC
    • Nikon Z 14-30mm f/4 S
    • Nikon 105mm f/1.4E ED
    • Nikon Z7
    • Nikon D500
    • Nikon 16-80mm f/2.8-4
    • Nikon D5
    • DJI Phantom 4 Pro Drone and Controller
    • DJI 5350 mAh batteries x 4
    • Manfrotto drone backpack
    Thanks!
