ugg, i guess this is just venting... i played a show last night and brought my GF1 with the 20mm and the Oly 45mm lenses. i took some pictures of the opening band with the 45mm and then set my camera up on a tripod in the back with the 20mm and recorded video of the our set. we had a table in the back and i left my small case on the table which happened to have the 45mm inside, along with the LVF1 and an extra battery. it was sitting right next to another video camera case, and a band member's laptop was sitting right on the table as well. the show wasn't packed (though there was a decent turnout) but pretty much everyone there knew a member of one or the other bands playing. anyway, when i went to pack up at the end of the night, my case was no where to be seen. it just doesn't make sense that it was deliberately stolen. :43: is pretty rare in this area and it just isn't recognizable like Canon or Nikon gear. no one who wasn't really familiar with this system would have any idea on the value of the stuff in the bag; and the battery and VF1 only work with a couple Panasonic models anyway. i left a note with the bar and sent messages to as many people as i could track down (via the FB event). i'm just really upset, mostly with myself i guess. i'm usually very good about not leaving my camera gear (or music gear) unattended. it's just that the camera wasn't even in the case and there was so much other stuff on that table. i imagine it was just that someone accidentally grabbed the wrong bag - it could even be mistaken for a purse or hand bag. the case was a small Lowepro Adventura 100. but now i'm out over $600 and my small lens collection is now reduced by 1/3.
