    This is typical "power struggle" in place. You actually talked about that in advance, and she showed you who is in command. The point was not to buy a new artificial need (there was no need anyway). The point was "who is in power". If you think it's a Christmas tree question, I think you are deeply mistaken

    Tell her you found a bargain in a pawnshop, hide the rest of the lenses you are gonna buy in the end amongst the rest of your lens collection, I assume she's not THAT interested in your gear that she keeps track of what kind of glass you carry (and after all, today a Hasselblad 500 is not gonna put you down a lot, but the glass....)..

    Or just sell all crap you dont need to fund your new toys.

    The dysfunctionality in this thread is incredible, even if I charitably assume 80% of you are trolling.

    I like Steve's "store it in the 8x10" solution though

    Hiding is no basis for a relationship. What is she hiding from you?

    Tell the truth and say you need it for baby portraits.

    The only time I would hide a camera from my wife is when I want to take her picture. She is quite shy.

    Do you hide your cameras from your wife?

    If you buy that hassy and then call it your new baby she will probably break it/despise you/despise the hassy/put it somewhere unpleasant and show you what a real baby feels like... Haha

    No, they're definitely plastic. This one's going back to the store, too. Tiny victory!

    Yay! You probably didn't mention the "this is a power trip" comment above haha

    Hope you can get a real one.

    We compromise by having two, one real, one fake, and one white and one colored.. Now that's compromise

    I love my Hasselblad. I shot some of my favorite pics of my kids with it. Tell her square is the perfect geometric shape for documenting babies and children...
