My wife and I have a conflict that has just(?) arisen:
Envious Nikonus.

History-
We bought her first Nikon, D300, 3 years ago.
When we met, I had a D7000, my fourth Nikon; I previously had a D70, a Coolpix 995, and a F3 HP.
She had point and shoots until I came along with my camera habit, and my penchant for Leica, which I had transferred to Lumix digital with Leica lenses.

The present-
She has the D300, and a D700 b'day present (we both think the D800 is overkill for our styles.)
I have the D7000 and a D600. The Lumixes are now her daughter's.

The bombshell-
She has long hinted that she "really likes" my D600. Last week-end she said she wants to "use" my D600.
I know what that means.
She asked to "use" my 28-200G lens, and I now have only visitation rights.
I like the D700, but it isn't my D600.
The cameras we use are grouped by user controls; my D600 and D7000, her D700 and D300.

My quandary would be so much less if I could afford a Df, but not right now.

Any help out there?

Tom
