Same thing happened to my friend in Russia. While at one of the museums, someone stole his lens right off the mount. When he attempted to take a picture, there was no lens! :eek:

Right now is peak tourist season in LA, I'm seeing so many tourist with their DSLRs just hanging off their neck, prime target for thieves if they're not careful.

I find this interesting, not meaning it is not ugly. In more than one occasion I have noticed how people look at me when I use any of my dSLR cameras with a fancy lens, especially if on a tripod. I have also noticed that when I use the little Olympus EPL-1 nobody seems to pay attention, especially if I do not use the EVF.

that is incredible. I guess we normal citizens wouldn't know these thing until it happens to you. Glad I seen
this and will be more careful next time I travel. I guess thats why people put black tape on the camera to
cover up the name etc...

Having grown up in Brooklyn NY, something like THAT would NEVER happen to me. I ALWAYS have a hand on my camera and lens if its hanging off my shoulder and I'm walking the streets.

The same way my doors are ALWAYS locked. It's just the way I grew up I guess.
