    Well...

    So far... my GF does complain a bit... but I remind her that this is a healthy hobby... so most of the times, the nags are short lived...

    I think if that were the case, I'd settle for f/3.5 lenses. I cannot imagine 3.5ct diamonds.

    Usually wife+mom can't tell if you have a 50mm f1.8 or a 50mm f1.0. (Neither can they tell the difference between a VVS or whatever grade diamond or between a 0.9 and 0.95 carat diamond, but thats beside the point here)

    So... trick is keep a separate account and siphon a little money out there once in a while, and when you buy something, no need to advertise to them. They can't tell the difference, neither do they care if you "need" it or not. That saves the nagging for other stuff... like the leaving the toilet seat up. Be prudent though... my wife did noticed when my lens collection went from 4 to 6 items! But obviously they were all "second hand bought cheap from Clubsnap".

    well, I say you use the new lens to take her picture and show her. tell her how beautiful she is then say you won't achieve that kind of result if not for the lens. get what I mean?

    I like your style.
    Anyway, as brian mentioned above, most wifes don't know the diff between one cam/lens and another (as long as you don't change from black to white one lah )
    Just gaffer everything and your wife just needs to know you have this big black camera. Five years ago, it was a big black camera. Five years later, still a big black camera. Of course, convert from film to digital must let her know (can't insult her intelligence when you chimp ) Don't let her handle it, if possible (most women loathe big cameras anyway).

    If you not married yet, but have steady gf (meaning the potential life partner kind), better "condition" her first, so next time you will have an easier time
