Old News... Great News!
« on: May 12, 2012, 03:09:39 AM »
I know everyone is in a fluff regarding the 5D3, however, I am giddy as a school girl over my wife and my recent coversation.

 :) Her: "Honey, why don't you go ahead and get the 5D2?"
 :o Me: "Okay!" (my obvious reply)
 :) Her: "Are there any lenses I might like?"
 :D Me: "Well, there's the 28 f/1.8 you would likely enjoy"
 :) Her: "Don't you think we should start buying more L glass?"
 ;D Me: "YES!" (starts panting but trying not to show too much excitement).

In the end we ended up going through Adorama who threw in a bunch of crazy extras like an extra battery, backpack, some software and a CF card, none of which I was too thrilled about but hey, they're "free".

Anyway we ended up buying the 5D2, random extras and the 35mm f/1.4L. So, though it turned out to be a rather expensive conversation, I believe it will be so worth it in the end. I have no idea how anyone would reply to this message but I was too excited to keep it to myself.

I would love for your wife to explain the value of a good lens to my wife.  I shouldn't complain - I did get her to give in on the 5D3 and I have enough L glass for now.

This is funny.

I guess i am lucky cause my wife is into photography too. So we can share lenes or she can use my L lenes.  ;D
She suggested me to get 10-22 and 24-105 too. She just bought me a 70-200 F4 IS for my birthday.

You're lucky your wife likes to share. My fiance and I use separate cameras (right now it's mostly because he can't take a good shot with mine, and because if he did get a dslr it would be Nikon). I told him if he got a Rebel he'd be on his own with lenses because I'm very anal about keeping mine clean and pristine.
