    Default incident happened at canon EOS experience day

    did anyone go to the Canon EOS yesterday(sunday)? around 530pm to 6pm?
    I got there around 530pm and tried out the 1DmkIII, amazing man!!!
    There is another amazing incident.
    I'm not sure if i got this correctly though it happened next to me. I was playing with 1DmkIII and the 400mm f/2.8 when the guy next to me asked the Canon guy if he could swap the 1.6x crop to view on the 1200mm. Amazingly the canon guy was very helpful and they swapped. After that i think another guy borrowed the 1DmkIII that the canon guy was holding to play with. That's all i know and 10 mins later i saw the canon guy was shocked and keep asking ppl around: "do you see the guy with the MkIII?" and they call more ppl to look for the missing mkIII. Guess what. There was an unclaimed 20D left on the 300 f/2.8

    I felt great when canon did let ppl try out all the equipment comfortably. But it's very bad when someone took advantage of it.

    I hope it got the situation wrongly and nothing is missing. (although they still look for it after half an hour).

    This is indeed PATHETIC.
    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt....

    Oh great, this is just GREAT.

    Tell me.

    The next time (given the loss of a 'not really cheap MkIII') I guess such events would be purely "by invitation" indoors.

    and then, how are we going to experience the power of super teles, even if we could get ourselves in?

    It's less suspicious this way... the number of lenses and cameras remain the same, so it will take the Canon assistant a while to notice that something is amiss. This will give the thief enough time to get away.

    but if that it's really that person who swapped the camera, i think he would be caught easily, if he had ever registered his warranty (and/or repaired/serviced his camera before), since canon would probably have at least this *******'s number!

    He could have bought the camera from someone in the buy/sell section? One of us may very well be getting a call soon.

    no there wasnt any CCTV.

    anyway, that seller who sold this ******* that 20D would almost probably have his number or at least contacted this ******* before. if trying hard enough, the thief confirm will be caught!

    From the description, it sounds like more than 1 person was involved, ie. the person who asked to swap the camera wasn't the one who asked to play with the Mk3. Could be an organised gang.

    Probably they wun be as generous anymore I guess.

    Ie, NO MORE SWAPPING OF CAMERAS TO LENS.

    They might allow u to swap CFs though. I guess.
