Canon cameras top the list of most stolen digital cameras, according to a Dec. 17 Digital Trends report. Specifically, the Nikon D7100 is the most desired by thieves, followed by the Canon EOS 60D, and Canon EOS 7D. These top three lenses are all Canon glass.

For those photographers who use Canon cameras, I4U News reports that the anti-theft service Lenstag has compiled a list of the most stolen camera lenses as well as the methods thieves use to permanently deprive owners of these possessions.

Car and home robberies top the methods thieves use the most, followed by weddings, airport baggage claims and online fraud.

For those hoping for Canon cameras this holiday season, the Lenstag website offers registration services for cameras and lenses. The site states that if the registered items are stolen, it will work to “get the word out” to prevent any future resales, and provide tips on how to get the items back.

Incidentally, Yahoo News reports that those longing to buy Canon cameras during the holiday season should wait until the new year. According to Lindsay Sakraida, features director at, the best time to buy is February or March when new electronics models are introduced, and last year's models go on sale.

While recognizing that expensive digital SLR cameras from companies like Nikon and Canon are "popular Christmas items," Sakraida observes, "if you can, it's wise to wait."
