    Nothing wrong, many ppls spent thousands of dollar on camera systems just to take snap shot.

    I myself spent more than 10-20K on camera gear just for hobby.

    It's better to spending 4-5k on stupid hand bags made of dead animal skin! Look at least your wife does something productive and artistic, unlike the horde of silly women who spend on materialistic stuff. Feel thankful. She probably finds your spending thousands on camera stuff puzzling as well. Why can't you ues the cheap 300 dollar PNS???

    As long as she uses her own money, I wouldn't care what she buys.

    Just like how I use my own money to buy my camera equipment, she doesn't care what I buy.

    I think it's the initial outlay that costs a lot. Later on, it might get worst!

    BUT, now you have the greatest excuse to pursue photography even more! To supply her with all those great photos that she can use to scrapbook! Which of course means along the way, you'll need new lenses, new flash, new camera ...
