I mentioned to my wife...

... that I wanted to purchase "a real camera". She said "Ya, what did you have in mind?"... I pointed her to this and she spit out her tea while laughing...

Now I am not sure, and frankly too damn scared to ask her, whether she thinks that is not a real camera or whether she will break me in half if I spend that kind of money on a camera...

HHmmm... any advice?

Buy the camera for you and a nice gift for her at the same time. If she likes the gift, then she'll be too focused on it to think about what she's going to do to you for splurging... Good old distraction tactic.

I have always found it much easier to get forgiveness rather than permission.

I think you'll find it's going to be hard to beat that price.

Even if he gets beaten by the wife... I'd say it's still worth it

Speaking of lenses, this one is currently in my waiting to hear back from store owner regarding availability wishlist.

If they had it in stock I'd buy the damn thing in the next hour.

I don't trust buying tech gear from Amazon, especially fragile stuff, considering the long bumpy ride it has to get to the land down under...

I think I'd like to have that camera. But I don't know your wife.

With a price like that, you got to buy it. Buy your wife a diamond and call it even.

It had been like that for me too hehe... Go buy that camera! Your wife can't complain at all once you have it. She won't ask you to return it to the store after all ( I hope)

My advice is to save your own extra money and purchase it using the money? Don't use your household money to avoid argument in the future.

Welll Gheez.........

Tell her this

"You only need such a good camera because you wish to ensure that you catch every bit of her beauty in its true natural form"

Take 2 photos of her...... Kiss on the cheek........then off you go and use it for its real purpose

You all are going to get pctec in the dog house and it's mighty cold and wet where he lives this time of year.

He could try "The Devil made me do it", worked for my Dad.

That's a nice choice if you really know that you're going to use it.
