    If you even think about gear over the girl she must not be the right one for you anyway...
    If she was right for you the question never would have been ask

    is this from an ebay auction? if so, explain your situation to the seller, and then, if they have a heart in their body, they'll allow you to postpone payment until you've taken this girl out. IF THEY HAVE A HEART THAT IS

    some people don't though.

    i've given up sleep (pretty precious in my book), and lots of time working over a fryer(no longer thank God) in the name of newer, better gear. if I could go back and do it all over again, I would . But if a great girl was involved, the gear would have had to wait!

    its your decision after all. some on this thread have said that if she has a heart, she'll understand. NOT TRUE SIR....

    any good(or especially great) girl is worth more than all the gear in the world. besides, its not like there isn't another Hassie out there with your name on it...

    just my $.02

    and think of the consequences that you'd suffer if she were to find out that you canceled, or even postponed the date because of having to use the money to pay for equipment? no warm bed for you . just cold sheets, along with your hasselblad to keep you company.

    cold metal doesn't feel nice, especially when its cold out

    -do what's right. take the poor girl out.

    and you don't have to spend very much money. as stated in above posts, IF SHE LIKES YOU FOR YOU, SHE WON'T CARE HOW MUCH MONEY YOU SPEND, IF ANY AT ALL! she will want to be with you, to be with you, not your money.

    Sometimes there are consequential costs though...

    If you ever meet with a similar decision just remember... if you don't keep your equipment exercised and lubed it will become brittle and/or seize up and quit working. There's nothing worse than a bellows that won't flex or a shutter that will no longer fire!!
