    Check your home insurance, it will probs cover everything apart from the 70-200 and pos the laptop.

    I have a rider on my home owners which covers all including the 70-200 2.8

    check with your insurance company

    Call your agent. Chances are, you will need to get a personal items policy. Its the same one you would get for a engagement or wedding ring. You will need to list out your equipment and serial numbers. Thats good to have anyway. The insurance is not very $$$ and well worth it, as most normal home owners policies have lots of rules that will nto cover all your equipment.

    While you are at it, consider an umbrella policy. If you are shooting for money, it may be worth it. They are cheap.
