    Just got off the phone and I have a 300-800mm Sigma headed this way.

    My wife is not going to be real thrilled.

    What can I tell her?

    Your ideas will be helpful!

    Do I promise to sell a lens?

    tell her it's for your girlfriend ....ROTFL!
  3. Tell her to hush or you'll simply upgrade her to the newest, latest, most expensive model, just like your photo gear.
  4. I've never seen anybody buy so many high dollar lenses in such a short period of time.

    As for what to tell your wife, tell her it's better than spending the money on drugs and liquor. Also, tell her what motel you will be checking into, just in case she decides to let you back in. :) 
  5. tell her you will include her in your avatar from now on
  6. Tell her its for the baby you are planning to have? :rolleyes:

    Promise her you'll only ever use it hand-held. How much fun could that be?
  10. WHAT DID you do ???? a 300-800??? Guy, I wouldn't be in your pants when your wife comes home... I hope you won some local lottery.... ;) 
  11. Tell her you plan to use it on your second honeymoon in Tahiti. Better yet, just hand her plane tickets to Tahiti and don't tell her about the lens until you pack:biggrin:

    Tell her she could use it if she wanted to. (most likely she would NOT use the lens) good luck!

    Tell her you're entering a program next week and the ADA says she can't kill you for having NAS, even if it is extreme.
  15. Tell her you got it from Nikon to test.
    Oh---wait, it's a Sigma. Never mind---you're DEAD!:Guns:
  16. Gary- I don't have a clue what you need to tell YOUR wife, when I buy a new lens I tell MY wife to look at YOUR gear list!!!!

    Good Luck- you just may need it.

  19. Well thank goodness you got the 300-800. It's big enough for a condor to nest in.
