    No diamond or jewellery at all at this moment. I can't remember her buying anything that's as EXPENSIVE as my F60...
    Seems like your GF and my wife has something in common.

    Default reasons for spending...

    Ah, people forget men and women value things very differently.

    Women and men place different values on the stuff they invest in.
    That said, some men do spend heaps on clothes and fancy gear, and some women do spend heaps on gadgets and accessories.

    Nonetheless, we shouldn't make generalisations that only some things are acceptable to be bought by one sex ... goes back to girls getting barbie dolls as presents, and boys getting toy soldiers.

    It's always interesting to see a biblical truth come to life: For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also...(Matt 6:21)
    I suspect the 'noise' made by the wives and gfs to their respective halfs are because the hobby is where their heart is... instead of with the woman! Look at the the title of this thread...

    So put your treasure where both your hearts are...
    my cousin gave up his photography hobby to spend more time with his children...so i inherited his equipment ....

    I'm fortunate to have a very supportive girlfriend... in fact, she got off work early just to accompany me to buy the D100..
    ... to make sure you don't spent more than 5.5K?

    That is rather rare, I think. If that's really the case, then it's just too bad.

    What draws me to my wife is the fact that she doesn't believe in frivolous things. Well, it works both ways. Looks like some of us cannot have the cake and eat it too.

    Perhaps, in your eyes, and minds, maybe derived from your time spent photographing women whose lives revolve around nothing but shopping, donning the latest and skimpiest fashion, and other superficial activities,

    --women are simplistic creatures who are inapt at managing their personal finances and who will not bat an eye about spending thousands on material goods, yet love to NAG when their spouses spend similar amounts on boy toys.

    it seems to me, at least within this forum that
    men are equally capable of such behavior.
    Sorry to disappoint you, but I don't "spend my time photographing women whose lives revolve around nothing but shopping, donning the latest and skimpiest fashion, and other superficial activities". I spend more time looking at code than photography.

    To make sure all the lenses and the necessary accessories are bought or ordered.. make sure everything he wanted is there and also help him recall things that he missed out. And also to share the experiance of getting a new Cam..

    The ang moh way (hehe)

    Don't have a wife or girlfriend, that way you can spend what you like without the guilt trip!

    Find girlfriend who's allergic to gold, silver, gems and expensive clothes

    Date a gal who earns 3x what you do,that way she'll buy your gear for you.

    Or you can also use this ploy - ask your GF/wife this question:-
    "Dear, help me to choose something to pass my time - drinking, womanising or photography?"



    Not to mention getting your GF/wife a big condo unit. That'll do the trick nicely for quick a few years i believe

    *sigh*... and some women will not understand what we are doing with a blower at 1am, nor want to be seen with us while we're lugging around a tripod.

    So light, what are you complaining about
    Try lugging around 6.5kg of legset and a 1.55kg ballhead sometime.
