+1 ... I've done that with my EF 16-35 f/2.8 L IS, FE 24-70 f/4 OSS & many accessories ... I wonder, how many other CR members have done something like thisAlso I agree about collecting enough lenses to mask the purchases. My wife would not know at this point which lens I added except maybe the 300-600mm super tele's. I want one of those but not going to be able to get away with a $6k lens.He he he ... +1
I know... I've purchased lenses which I've smuggled home with the box collapsed and the styrofoam in the front pocket of my laptop bag.
I'll buy something and I just won't tell her. Most of the stuff I get comes through the mail, and she works at home... so I can't hide it...
I understand though... sometimes you don't want to have to deal with the hassle of explaining it wasn't that much... and if you sell X, really, you got an upgrade for only $XXX.
