When I was footloose and fancy free it wasn't hard to justify a major purchase like a D3 to myself...boys and their toys and such. Now I'm an engaged man and my fiance talks about the wedding, honeymoon and so forth. Now she is ever patient and ever so very supportive of my habit...I mean hobby, but even I feel I need help justifying a D3. So I will help everyone with some ammo on which to reach her. I already have a D2X and an S5Pro. Quite a bit of glass and some tripods. I have a 500 AF-I that I don't use that much and I also have a 200 F/2 that I love, but doesn't come out to play much. I have a 1325 that has since been replaced by the new Gitzo. Let's be honest though, I could sell those things, but that isn't any fun. I want to keep my other toys AND get a D3.

How can I justify having a wedding and getting a D3 for it. On the honeymoon what reasons would I need a D3. We plan on doing some underwater photography while we are someplace maybe Belize. On a good note we do plan on getting married in the Smokey's so it's scenic.

I need some good ammo to sway her heart over to the D3.
