I hope to get something along those lines one day. Part of my bargain is I have to prove I deserve these lenses before I can even mention any other kit.

HELP me jump the learning curve people! I know next to nothing about how to produce amazing landscapes.

I have the 100L and the 17-55, my wife hates them. She claims they show her every wrinkle, but she loves the images of the grandkids. They are great lenses. -rick

One does have to be careful to not get tooo much detail when using it as a portrait lens. Haha

In a moment of weakness I've just ordered the EF 100mm f.2.8L and the EF-S 10-22. It took much skill to convince the wife that a 7d was wasted without this glass and endlessly showing her some of the fantastic shots in the gallery.

So I want to humbly thank all the contributors to the lens gallery subforum, your time and efforts are much appreciated :cool:

If I can resist the urge to shred the box straight away, unboxing pics to follow in a few days...

I'm sorry, why do you have to convince your wife to buy something you want? Do you not earn enough to buy something you want for your hobby? Why do you need her permission? (ignore if you don't make any money and she pays for everything)

First, whether GF or wife (especially wife), finances aren't just solely your own anymore, well at least they shouldn't. Everything becomes a decision the two of you have to make no matter who makes more money. If financial issues did come up, and it shows that you purchased thousands of dollars worth of stuff without talking with your SO, how well do you think that will go?

Secondly, why does it matter?

EDIT: oh and StarBlazer, I'm very jealous of your two purchases.

I was very serious, not trying to be an ass. I can freely buy anything I want and so can my wife, I don't understand this "I had to convince my wife" logic that I seem to have been seeing more and more recently. Again, I don't know the details, obviously if the OP is unemployed and the wife pays for the bills, then I retract what I said.

There is "letting her know" and there is "asking for her permission". Two entirely different things.

Again, for my family, it's a two way street, my wife does the same to me. She does let me know of her purchases, but she doesn't need to ask for my permission.

If you like macro, you will love your 100L.

I just picked up the 100L Saturday and have been playing with it. I had (have) the 100mm non-L non-USM (I have had it since before the USM and the L were ever made) and loved it for macro. I am so loving this new L version. With the IS (plus new for me USM and the ability to use a tripod collar), it will definitely serve more than just macro duty. By the way tripod collar ordered Sunday.

Congratulations and enjoy your new lenses!


Thanks for Reading & Good Luck - Jim

Maybe they are not as well off as you and cant just go around spending lots of money without discussing it?

Any tips on how to avoid showing too many wrinkles? I guess good even lighting!?!

@TheLensGuy mine is obviously a choice. My wife is my conscience and I trust her common sense more than my own. Sharing decisions is a fundamental part of what marriage means to me, but of course we are both free to do anything we want.

@everoneElse sorry, is this a photography forum or Alcoholics Anonymous lol

Soft, flatter lighting should help minimize wrinkles.

I don't think it is AA, they are supposed to help you not drink. This Forum doesn't help me not spend on more lenses, it makes me go out and spend on more/better lenses. It's the reverse!
