Leica Store Vienna was robbed, here is the list of stolen equipment

Leica Store Vienna was robbed on Christmas Day:

According to local newspaper Heute (Today), the burglars “arrived at 5 a.m. and were undeterred by witnesses, alarm systems and video cameras. On Christmas Day, three men smashed the display of the Leica photo shop at Westbahnstrasse 40 with a concrete block. In the store, they then smashed the display cases with an iron bar. In a flash, the suspects packed up cameras and accessories, then sped away out of town in a getaway car towards Kaiserstrasse.”

Update: here is the original post.

Here is the list of stolen equipment:
