    For what other reason would you hide purchases from your best friend, if not for the worry of whether the next strike of the frying pan is 'really' going to hurt?

    Are we not men anymore?

    So in answer to the question, YES I do hide my camera purchases from the wife.
    Real men don't need to hide anything.

    Yes, and the last word is always mine: "Yes, Darling..."

    Ok, problem solved. I got a Rolleiflex instead. Now I can put it among the other six and my wife will surelly not notice (she is smart but not that smart).

    Still not a Hassel owner but at least for some time my GAS is... dammit!! I really want a Hasselblad...

    That´s exactly how I got some of my cameras.

    I traded my wife in. I did not get much for her, but the new models are terrific. Younger, lower mileage, lower maintenance, lighter, more enjoyable ... best decision I every made. I never had a problem since for spending money on cameras, lenses ... Life is good and I am happy.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    You should start with a used Kiev-88 ot two. From there on, you can start hiding. Il y a la securite dans les nombres.

    Sirius, it is seriously time for you to let go of your bitterness to your ex. You have been bitching about her for years on a PHOTOGRAPHY forum, and crowing about your trophy girl.
    I was a very bitter and angry woman for a while. One of the ways my current (14 years) sweetheart impressed me was by not dissing his ex. His example helped me let go of my anger. He won out over other contenders because he was a grown up.

    I also want to thank the guys who have objected to the mysogynistic remarks this thread has flushed out. I've been biting my tongue ever since it started.

    Which of my remarks do you consider stupid, misogynistic, narrow minded or offensive? I offered you some facts and some observations (regarding pensions, military service, custody of children, economic consequences of divorce etc) and you only put forward your prejudices.

    Besides I certainly have several life-long woman friends and I respect most of woman in general as well, you seem not to be able to understand what I write, which is that notwithstanding the widespread rhetoric about woman being "victims" in our society, they actually enjoy unjustified privileges, and things are getting worse by the day.

    Hence my remarks on "men liberation front" or generally being conscious about the injustice.
