Greg,

This is a very easy problem to solve ... it's called the 3-carat diamond solution! Carol will be so happy :Love: you will get a bonus option of keeping them both! :710: Whoever said having photography as a hobby was inexpensive forgot the collaterial costs! :biggrin:

Regards,

Well...I just bought a 300 2.8. Had it shipped to work and put on the business credit card. I did tell my wife I recently bought a new lens....I just left out the $4500 part! Too bad she's the one who pays the company bills. So I guess I bought myself a couple of weeks before the billing cycle ends?

You can send it down to me and I'll keep it here. I'll overnight it back when you need it

Or you're not too far. We can just meet halfway

Frankly Greg, methinks that you will have a bit of difficulty with your approach (see the quick image I shot this morning :eek:).

Why pretend, I like Barry's suggestion much better :biggrin:

My wifie always says that "I deserve it." A surprise bouquet of flowers before the new lens announcement should help you achieve my lofty status!!!:Love::rolleyes:

ah, keith
in the pre-internet days it was far easier for me to UNDERestimate the cost of "toys" for me....

now.... it take carol 30 secs to discover the cost of anything, of course

enjoy your 2-week holiday from "FUN."

You could also tell her that most doctors in the throes of a mid-life crisis have affairs with their nurses. All you did was buy a lens! :biggrin:

you never know, it might work . . . But have your pillow with you, you might need it.

Frits, my friend
i was hoping that you'd see this thread

ah....
the size difference is substantial
hmmmmm
i'm going to have to re-group

the diamond may not do it
maybe.... that little bed-n-breakfast in the 6th district in paris will be all that will suffice

i GREATLY appreciate your post and picture

Ed...
i suppose that carol would feel the same way
i work hard...
10K for a "toy" is far cheaper than that MV Agusta Brutale i brought home a couple of years ago (and since sold.... at a loss i won't mention here :frown:)
