That's what I did. But, now she needs a better lens and camera than the T5 & 70-300 III Kit lens. I got the 80D & 100-400 II recently. :p

Yep, been there, done that. First my 70D was confiscated, then the 6D, and now she needs a 100-400. On the other hand, that's how I upgraded to the 5D IV, who am I to complain? :-)

No luck with me. My wife uses her phone for pix. That's it. But she likes my pix and doesn't mind all the gear around or me lugging gear on trips. She has her gear issues, too, she's a musician when not at her day job. It kind of evens out. Her stuff is way heavier though!! If I think the big white teles are bad, I think about when I have to load up and unload her keyboards.

I dare say this game is easier to play if you both have fun doing it.

"I'm hungry, I'm tired, I'm getting bitten by mosquitos, I'm bored, how much further, I don't have iPhone reception, etc, etc etc"...

Makes it hard to take any meaningful photos, let alone capture a skittish bird. She used to have a 60D, but it never got used. I recently got her some binoculars, but they haven't been used yet. So I generally don't take her anywhere with me if I have my camera, but she's all about the 70-200 f/2.8 II when it's time to add some photos to her website -?

He came back with his mate. My arms were nearly dropping off waiting for her to come onto the same plane as him but no luck!

My wife and I are in it together, too. She's definitely better artistically; I'm the technical guy. We can go somewhere and take photos for a few hours and when we compare photos later, it's sometimes hard to tell we were in the same place. Different styles for sure, but we both enjoy it very much.

Had a blast yesterday at a hummer garden that the president of a local photo club has. He was returning the favor of my having him over to get images of the hummer nest. I just had to make my self leave. I don't see how he hasn't gone through his 200K shutter counts.

I would never have been able to get these images with my old rig of a 60D and 70-300mmL

These are the last ones that I'll post. She was getting tired I guess. Well so was I. Had to shake it off and do some hand stretching.

Would think your wife would be hidden by the mosquito cloud this time of year?

Heart warming tales, gents. Wish it were the same for me, but alas, it is what it is. I'm from small town/country side Wisconsin, and am not afraid of bugs/mud/critters... she's a city girl, that stuff just isn't her thing.

To my wife's credit, she doesn't suffer from GAS. I'm regularly impressed by her iPhone photos and the creativity she employs, but she shoots completely different subjects than me (mostly for her business/website). Says she doesn't need a DSLR, and I agree with her. Sometimes though, when she does take up my camera to make photos, they turn out pretty awesome. Same story as yours, Jim: her and I get completely different results shooting the same subjects, it's really interesting to see what she comes up with.
