My wife just told me to quit wasting time because the new 5D isn't even coming (CR 0.001)   ::)

Besides, you're not even a photographer!  (CR 2)   :'(

AND, you're definitely not getting one anyway!  (CR5)  >:(

Very funny! Great OP!

lol Carny

we can come over and have a nice CR meetup at your house one night drinking beers and discussing rumors, just to get your wife annoyed and maybe convince her you do need that camera ;)

Hell, with an attitude like that, I'd be happy with a like-minded brother. Ideally without a lot of facial/back hair and a panache for summer dresses. But I'm being a little fussy ;)

I just bought a piano for my girlfriend, so I can have a good/lame excuse to buy 5D MK III. Beat that!

First post, btw.. Nice forum.

My fiance has said that I can do what ever I want with "my" money as long as I pay my part of the bills.
I've been going on about the 5D3 for years and have been saying that I'm gonna get one someday.
We're having a baby in May and this weekend she asked if that new camera I was getting could record video of the new baby.
Awesome!
Nothings stopping me now. muahaha

Also, the headline of this thread almost made me cry.

About half of my 5D3's likely cost has been covered by recent payments from my medical insurer (£50 per night in return for being in a state-funded hospital). It makes it almost worth having a failing pancreas.  :-\

I'm a strong advocate of the stealth method.

You'd be surprised at how many strobes, lenses, umbrellas, etc. etc., you can sneak into the man cave if you are careful.

You do need to 'fess up to at least one white lens, so that she knows you have at least one big white lens, since they are pretty much a dead giveaway.

Once she knows you've got three or four lenses, you are golden. Who notices the differences after that.

When you are caught (and you will be caught) just act like you've had it for a long time. "Oh that, I got that ages ago."

This only works if you keep separate accounts. That, BTW, I have found after three marriages is a real secret to a happy marriage.

Never, ever, ever complain, criticize or question your partner's purchases. It takes a lot of shoes and purses to equal a lens.

Get home first, so you can intercept the package or delivery notice.  Adorama plasters their names all over their packages making them way too distinctive for a stealth operation.

Don't ever believe you are really fooling her. She probably knows all about your addiction anyway.


:-) Not that far off. Best thing: there is a good store within walking distance of work! And they don't blink when people pay cash...the guy actually recently laughed when they had something on backorder and he offered to mail it home for free. Nah, thanks I'd rather pick it up.

The only issue are the growing size and number of bags and cases under my desk. The  Pelican case really looks different from my bag from a few years ago...  :D

5DII - 50L - 135L - 200 2.8L - 24-105 - 580EXII - 430EXII - FD 500/8 - AE1-p - bag full of FD lenses

I'll second unfocused's advice of being supportive of your partner's purchases.  it's got to be a two way street.  if you are buying expensive camera equipment you will never have a grounds to nitpick at her personal purchases.  and yeah, it takes either some very very expensive purses (or a lot of less expensive purses) to add up to a single L lens ... or, apparently these days, a slow non-L prime (yep I'm still bitter on the pricing for the new 24 and 28).

there's a couple of lenses I'd like to have that, yes, apparently you'd need to buy your spouse a car in order to match ... maybe I should just get out ahead of the curve in that; splurge on a mercedes and you can buy whatever lens you want for a long, long time.
