    How good that would be.
    That's awesome... a modular camera and a modular lens. Another tool to thwart the wife!

    Hey 'future' wife! If you're reading this, just so let you know that no matter what lens or camera I use, I still love you more. Believe me!! Hehe.

    apart from nightmare, how many of us here actually got partner/spouse that is into photography?

    birthday give each other lens... anniversary upgrade each other's camera body... valentine's day print special album... vacation destination is chosen based on photographic potential and not shopping opportunities...

    SOMEBODY TELL ME THIS HAPPENS IN REAL LIFE SO I CAN DREAM ABOUT WHAT MY FUTURE GF CAN BE

    I know one couple in CS is doing that, they been travelling very freq for the last 1 year just to take photo.

    To me, my partner is not into photography, photography actually give me some space for myself when I'm out shooting alone. And i feel blessed that she is very supportive on what I'm doing.

    Just don't let her know how much i had spent on gears.

    why not? it can happen if you look around long enough and you have the chance..
    cameras are cheaper nowadays, so more people are buying them, guys and gals alike..

    For me, photography is like a pass by journey for me.

    Most probably I will be out doing performance tuning for my car..

    So no one knows except my friends and mechanic,

    And for your info, photography so far isn't the most expensive hobby, maximum for a medium format, around 50-60k. But for automotive modification, it's more than 80k for a track ready monster.

    Don't hide any camera purchases from the wife as she's usually standing next to me at the camera shop. Have been lucky that the wife has purchased a DSLR and lens for me.

    Guys,

    I hope the replies posted in this thread are spoken in jest only..because if the replies are true, I think you have some problems in the relationship with the spouse.

    At the end of the day, you are buying a camera, not dealing in heroin or illegal cigarettes..so I don't see why all the secret agent stuff is necessary.

    Perhaps the relationship was not put on a open and honest perspective at the very beginning with regards to photography as a hobby.

    Of course, if you have children, I would strongly advise that the needs of the children come first, regardless of whatever passion you have for photography. Photography is no substitute for a family...unless it brings home the bacon.

    Some food for thought for all...

    Your words are food for thought and I'm sure that most of us were mostly having fun (although I'm sure that some of it was true!).

    Anyway here's an interesting article on cameras and family:

    I love my wife too, but I've been married for over 800 years. Photography used to be my past time, now it is my escape.
