I tell her the truth. If there is a good reason to get the 6k body or the 10k lens then I'm sure she'll be convinced. If she is still not convinced that means your reasons not solid enough and you should probably rethink whether you really need that purchase.

Do what every woman also does when they walk pass a jewellery store, everytime you walk near a camera shop, keep looking at the camera, when she ask you whats the matter, pause for a while, make sure she sees you watching that camera........

She may even buy the camera for you!! :bsmilie::bsmilie::bsmilie:

Alternatively tell her - like 50% of the cost only lor maybe 6K u declare 3K or any amt thats acceptable to her ...and pray she will not know.

If she know, tell her - oh.. its second hand i found the lobang online ....
case closed? ....

keke ...


Anyway just up front tell your wife/gf that you wan to get this item because you think (all sorts of reason) .... and i think if your wife/gf understands you and your passion in photography there should not be a problem.

unless u r those that 3-min passion, spend a lot of money on a new hobby and 3months later change another one, your wife/gf knows ur bad habit .... then ... too bad.

Not exactly a 3 minute passion here. Really want to do something during the "free" time. Of course not going to spend more than a "few" thousand for a start.

BTW..just got a PnS about 2 months back....at that time, my older compact "kaput"..so got the excuse.

Keep the suggestion rolling!!

Just tell her the old body price is dropping very fast. Sell and getting a newer body is more worth it.

bring her to a studio and get a quotation for a photo-shoot session of say $1000 shoot for 5 picture.

She will surely complain that the price is super expensive. And if she wants another shoot sometime later, then she will have to pay for the shoot again.

so, the reason to get a DSLR is here :thumbsup:

buy a camera , and it will help you save money. :)
