When we buy Contax N lenses on the used market, we have to be careful not to buy stolen goods. Before you buy, please obtain the serial number and search for it in the Stolen Equipment Registry:

http://www.photo.net/neighbor/registry/

If you are a victim, you should report the serial number to the registry, and myself, and to the police. The following lenses are known to be illegal property: [Edit: all of them have been recovered. Thanks for the watch!]

Vario-Sonnar 17-35/2.8
151XXXXX [recovered]

Vario-Sonnar 70-300/4-5.6
126XXXXX [recovered]

Vario-Sonnar 24-85/3.5-4.5
127XXXXX [found]

I know many of you are eBay watchers because all of us want to look for these lenses. Please keep an eye on the above serial numbers and let me know if you see them. Thanks!
