5000 units of Nikon cameras worth 440 million gone with the wind in 10minutes

Hopefully they have learnt their lesson because this is not the first case.

year 2003, 192 units of D100 got stolen

year 2004, 108 units of D70 got stolen

year 2005 april, 47 units of D2x got stolen

year 2005 july, 2504 units of D50 got stolen

year 2005 december, 5000 units got stolen

What's next? D200?

从这么多事件中我们不难发现,近来只要是尼康新上市的热销单反数码相机,都会遭遇一回失窃。不论数量多少价格多少,都让这款相机成为当红明星。当然这样的“失窃”事件,也使得这些机型卖得更为火爆!这些到底是尼康的炒作手段还是确有其事呢?为什么别的厂商不偷,唯独就你们尼康频频失窃呢?

From the Chinese words, its about HK$4.4mil for 5000 cameras, so each one cost about HK$880, or about S$200, not the high end DSLR.

Ah.. you don't start. wai :kok:

There's huge market out there for black market equipment. I can easily rid 1000 1DS MKII also. But at the rate it's sponsored to pro photographers, it's easily rid of already.
