Re: One of our hire 12-40s has gone missing

If its working inside a church then is it using the 'phone signal for triangulation? I suspect that the GPS signal is useless if its inside or in a bag/pocket.

Incidentally, just as an update, the lens was never recovered and the client did a runner Research suggests someone of the same name has been in court over photography/money related complaints in a similar time period.

Sorry to hear it Ian. Some people seem to make a career out of this sort of criminal activity, and get away with it.

There's always someone who spoils it for everyone else, by doing something like this.
