I enjoy reading about the different relationships and the banter back and forth between some husbands and wifes. I am very fortunate that my wife could care less what I spend on my photography hobby. Last fall she saw my D2Xs on the shelf and remarked oh another camera. My response was yes I have had it for over a year. She never asks and I never tell. What a great 38 years of marriage it has been. I am looking at the 600 f/4vr. For that purchase I may have to get permission for the first time ever.
