    The intro says it was a ‘security van’ but later in the post it describes it as an ‘unmarked van’. Security vans don’t get left unattended near Phoenix Park at 22.00. Somebody has been very very stupid!

      Hi Crispin
      Thanks for your comment. I stated that it was a security van because it was alarmed , with I understand CCTV etc. When I mentioned unmarked I meant not branded as “Nikon”. Hope that clarifies.

      Good luck on Friday.

    The funny thing is, whoever buys the stolen D4 will probably post an image on Flickr and not remember to strip the EXIF info.

    Sounds like a good basic Nikon kit. Quite a loss.

    That is a really stupid thing to do…to park unmarked van near The Phoenix Park. It is NEVER safe to park in The Phoenix Park with highly likely it can be stolen, it is clear te driver who doesn’t know the area to chance it. I wouldn’t park in the Phoenix Park if you paid a million quid.

    D7000 owner ( 2 months old/8K count..pop-up flash goes dark after 4 flashes Commanding a new SB-910 in Slave mode. Off to El Segundo, CA, West Coast Nikon Repair. We’ll see…)
    Had a thought…if one helped in the recovery of the purloined goods, (was the whole van taken or emptied there?); wouldn’t it be righteous if Nikon let you pick one box as a reward…but you couldn’t resell it…you would have it to use for the length of the usual warranty period. Probably get you in The Nikon Newsletter.
    Question for the Group.
    What would you pick?
    The why is your own business…I’d go for one those giant fast telephoto mortar tubes..Probably can’t even lift it as old as I am.
