Seems like a lot of you guy/girls are just here for fun. I've read many people say "my wife says no"? You're a grown ass man asking your wife for allowance, what a same.

As for me well..

Awesome picture!!! Well said too... "grown ass man", damn straight... now go buy whatever the heck you want.  I'll probably buy 2 5D3s just because I can. 8)

How many, or which, forum members have the funds to purchase a 5D MkIII is nobody's business but their own.

( I can't believe I am actually posting on this thread  :P )
Looking at life through a 1D4 and a 5D3 plus lots of red rings.

Judging soley on the OP's initial post, should we assume he isn't married?  Shoot, with me, I shoot professionally, can write off all purchases on taxes, and can get the money for the camera in about a months time if needed, and I STILL have to explain to my wife/CEO that I need a new camera, even though my 5d2 is only 4 months old haha.  That being said, when I liquidate my 5d2, I could make up the difference easily in 1 month and plan on getting mine asap as soon as retailers start getting steady shipments and I wont be without a second body too long.

Are you even married? You have to look at it from another perspective as well. If my wife dropped $3500 on something without talking to me first, I'd be a little unhappy (unless it was a 5D III). It's not about controlling the money, it's about being in a partnership and making decisions together. Welcome to the 21st century! But since we're on the topic, my wife is letting me buy one because I actually need it  :D.

Well said, good sir!  He must not be married ;)  I too write everything off, and if I had purchased the markII (which I am glad I waited to do) my husband would probably be saying no way, which would be totally reasonable.  We all have to compromise for the sake of our significant others.  That being said, yeah for mastercard! ;D
