I read somewhere... Just say you are sending D70 for sensor cleaning and when it gets back it will be D200, when she asks what is that? you answer they could not clean sensor but they have sent new version :O
Well you can come up with something, something like they have a special offer if you buy two 1gb memmory cards they are giving you small brother of D70, it is called D200 you can add "it is cheap camera but as a back-up it will be enough" ??? no?

Not necessarily Cafe fodder. After all, what good is a D200 if you can't get one? That may be the most important point of discussion!
My approach has been two-fold. 1) I let her in on the rumor mill that was suggesting a price of around $2500. After that, $1700 doesn't look so bad. 2) As she has dropped hints about getting _another_ horse, I haven't sounded too shocked or angry.
Which leads to the corollary in my house, anything I get really ends up costing double. Tit for tat, as it where.
Then again, if I really thought I could avoid horse number 2 I might be willing to get an FM-10 and an E-Series 50 and call it quits.
