No kiddin.

I think the only way my wife would allow me to buy it from B & H would be if I paid her balance off her credit card. So I did and I paid $1,599 for the zoom. Hope to get it next week.:lol:

just wait until she comes up to you in a couple of months and says "hey, if you pay my $10,000 credit card you can get a 1D" as she smiles nicely. LOL :)

Wait a sec... she had already spent like 5,000 on shoes or something and wouldn't let you get a measly 1,500 lens?

That's just not right.

When I finally get my 70-200, it is gonna cost me a nice little extra too. My wife knows nothing about cameras and lenses other than the white ones are expensive. So how much extra do you think it is going to cost me to get someone to airbrush a 70-200 2.8 IS to all black?

My lenses always cost me a little extra - but not that much. :) Good thing my wife is more practical in her tastes. Usually I have to do some upgrade to the house to earn a new lens.

I must be doing something wrong. I pay off her credit cards and get nothing in return.

Oh wait, she did buy me my 300 f2.8 for my birthday this year.
