Last week, rumors started going around
that a Nikon truck had been stolen, along with pre-production
versions of the D4 and D800. On Friday, Nikon confirmed that these
rumors are indeed true and expanded a bit, saying that over 100,000
pounds ($158,000) worth of gear was taken, including the two rumored
Nikon UK’s communications manager
Claudio Paul says that many of the details are going to stay private,
including a list of the gear that was stolen. The company has also
not revealed the circumstances of this crime, simply that the van was
taken. We don’t know how it was done, whether it was intentional or
not or any other details on what happened.
The truck was stolen on the way home
from a roadshow, but Nikon says that’s not going to stop future
roadshows. Paul assures that arrangements have been made and future
events will be unaffected.
