    I bet your spouse do buy clothings every week or month right ?

    so ask the same question back, " you can buy clothes and bags, why cant i buy my camera stuffs ?"

    there is a very good solution to this which my wife uses.

    Buy so many that your spouse loses track. My wife has sooo many bags. Everytime she carries a new bag and I ask her about it, she will say she bought it a few years back.

    Can do the same for your camera and lens.

    Try to explain to your spouse, by upgrading photography equipments, nicer pictures taken, and 20years down the road, look at the photos back, a higher level of romantic feel.

    And by spouse buying new clothes so that she would look nicer in the photos..

    Not if they don't speak camera.

    10-20mm, f1.4, Distagon and Aspherical will surely make their nose bleed.

    i think it is more worrisome when your wife takes your purchases and sells them for her own purchases.

    why all of you so sad,

    when i talk to my gf, i ask her "should i buy this?"

    her answer is "BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB."

    i think i spend more time hiding my purchases from myself.

    ryan, you have to see my spending path to understand her attitude.

    when i buy something, i would have thought about it for at least 3 months, and also talked about it for quite a while.

    that's how i end up with so little lenses even after all this time. and all my lenses are constantly used, other than the fisheye...

    haha this is such an interesting topic!

    I hide like siao... she probably guess as much but choose just to turn a blind eye to the dry cabi lying in the living room...

    When upgrading camera body, always go for the similar form factor. I switched a Canon 40D to 5D MkII on her and she really can't tell the difference.

    Why do you think I have only the L lenses? It's because she only recognize the red ring so she thought I only have one lens. She really didn't noticed the difference between 24-105L, 35L, 85L and 135L...

    Makes no difference if you're married or not. Women have a 6th sense called "intuition". Your future wife is already reading your posts!

    how I wish Canon has this body and lens whereby a buy a body, and just slot the sensor in, comes with 2 sensor, so i can shoot 1.6 crop and FF.

    Then lens, I just buy 1 lens and slot whatever focal glass into it ..

    How good that would be.
