    Take good pictures and show her that those items are bought for a purpose.
    That's what I usually do.
    I'm looking at a different perpective of life.

    that's truth, better than on other women or other "man only" hobbies.

    Ok lah.....for so many years, my gf don't how much i had spend for photographic equipment.....but she knew i spend quite a lot......

    Whenever she try to ask about camera stuff, i will just tell her to look at my photo instead, equipment is not that important. ....so far so good.

    nt to worry, my wife already used to it.. ur gf will..it jus tks time..
    jus remember to assure her everyday "i bought all these to capture our wonderful memories together" and follow by the "i love u" thing..Ok, u noe larh.. It works, trust me.. Most impt of all is to balance the pics of bugs/insects/or whatever macro u are gg to tk and the pics of her/u and her inside, in order nt to incur her wrath.. Women's fury is scary i tell u...(My wife throw my Gitzo Cf tripod on the floor once)

    make firends with CS members who own many equipment and let her know them as well , then she'll think you're reasonable and your spending isn't that much. Or at most, she asked you to quit having such friends and probably still get to keep your stuff. Comparison helps !

    Wooo.. those are some v nice xmas gifts for yourself. Like many others said, if you're able to show her you do spend $$ wisely etc and have made plans for the future etc, you shouldn't have any issues with her at all. That's base on whether you guys have sufficient communication... so afterall, don't worry too much la. Take those lens out and start shoottttinggg

    I guarantee that whatever you bought would be infinitely more useful than a similar-priced diamond ring.

    you can put the 100L in my house 1st...
    wait until next year then you take it, then pretend you just bought it...
    i think it can reduce the damage done by your GF...
    you can pm me if you are ok with my idea

    explain to her that since u have a camera,

    1) needs better lens to take better photos of her with the 2 lens.
    2) needs the tripod to take her photos with beautiful night scence.
    3) needs a bag that r both fashionable (which makes her looks good too) & doesnt shout "CAMERAS" (especially during oversea vacations with her).
    4) needs a dry box to prolong the life of the investment.

    but i dont know how to explain about the extension tube
