This is one of the blessings of Nikon vs. Cannon: no conspicuous white lenses, so unless the wife is very detail oriented, they all look more or less the same! So long as the box doesn't appear, you can try the "... no, that lens is about 3 years old..." explanation! I am blessed. My then fiance bought me my first DSLR -- a D100 -- for a homecoming present when I return from Iraq in 2003 and enjoys my joy with each piece of Nikon equipment I acquire. I limit my lenses though, and don't push my good fortune!
