While I do not believe in karma, the above is certainly an interested thread to read. Basically this guy (BucketMan), like anyone one of us, buys a 70-200 2.8L IS mk1 that is stolen, gets a call from a detective and decides to send the original owner the lens back because he feels that it is the correct thing to do. He (BucketMan) posted his story on the forum, and someone took the initiative to rally the forum members to chip in to get him back a new lens out of good will. With the help from Helen (a POTN member and Adorama public relations personnel) who gave him a good price on a new lens, not only have they managed to raise the amount needed, they've raised enough for a 70-200 2.8L IS mk2 (special price) in a SINGLE DAY, with the extras going somewhere, probably to fund the running of the site.
I say, good job!
