thank god i'm not married, and I'm going to make sure my gf's know about my L-cholic addiction right from the getgo.

I met my current one through shooting, and she's ok with it, for now.

I say ease it in and just pretend that the lens has always been there, or, sell the kit lens, so that she doesn't notice the total number of lens count increasing

My wife only can tell deference between "White lens" and "Black lens"
I actualy got about 2- 3 lenses and she doesnt even know , only problem was 100-400L , it was problem at first but after she saw photos of our son (taken with 24-105 and 50 f1.4 ) it was fine .

now I am thinking how to get 70-200L f2.8 without cuasulties .:p

This is very wise. Amen.

...The only problem will be if I get a (white) 70-200 f/2.8 IS to replace my (black) Sigma...

Just make sure you buy a tin of "off white" paint from you local B&Q (Home Depot) store first.

(then you may convince people you simply painted your old one!)
