    I just got a GH2 and some good lenses and after i realized how much I spent I was seriously thinking about getting insurance for my stuff. Has anyone on here bought insurance before for camera gear? Thoughts on this? I found a couple companies but not sure if its necessary...

    Hrm. I purchased an extended warranty for my E-P1 that covered accidental damage by the user. It ends at the end of the year. Never looked for insurance though. My renters insurance would cover theft if stolen from my apartment. As far as stolen on a trip or something, I wonder if lo-jack has anything.

    My home owner's insurance covers my camera gear. I had a Zeiss 24-70mm stolen from my car that my insurance reimbursed me for (less depreciation).

    I wonder how it affects your insurance premiums for your home? I know lots of people in the Apple community advise agsinst claiming for stolen/destroyed equipment due to the total costs in the long term.

    I have separate riders on my homeowners policy for my camera and computer equipment. Total cost for both is under $100/yr, covers just about anything, and for my older camera stuff they accept KEH prices as the current value for replacement. Both are $50 deductible policies.
