    Now, if you wife is FaT, tell her that your new lens can make her look a wee bit slimmer.
    Do not be afraid [of ghost and bullies] Shoot them......

    I guess the common reply will be "Your skill ain't up to the task!".

    There is no hiding for me. My wife manage the accounts...so cannot escape. In order to buy my "toys", I have to ask really really nicely with a sweet smile and sad puppy eyes.... hahaha

    Come to think of it, she is supportive of my expensive hobby. accompany me to visit different shops to make sure I got good deal, make me rethink if I really need the stuff so that i do not do impulse buy, help me save for large purchase, carry the tripod. If I hide the truth from her, all that will be gone. so I rather work on my nice sweet smile and sad puppy eye for my next targeted purchase... fuji X100 (so damm retro cool)

    i don't hide my cam related purchases from my wife. No need to... coz I AM THE LAW!

    kidding aside, she supports me with this hobby... even help me to choose which photoshoot has a nice, experienced (Posing standards) model to attend.

    i think everything depends on how you handle "your Precious"!
    Why so serious... Son?

    a better lens will do it justice..

    Amusing! Its got to a point whereby i have too many camera bodies, not to mention lenses, my wifey just can't be bothered now... so long the pictures turn out nice, that's her main concern! hahaha...
    Its just a box ... ... [ Ō ▀ ]
