    Shhhh, don't tell the wife...

    Just came home with an early Christmas/Birthday present for myself. Hasselblad 500C/M with 2 backs and a 150mm lens. Need to find an 80mm, might take some searching, but boy am I happy. Commision sale from local photo shop, cheaper than if bought blind from ebay. Body is ..ES.... which makes it '90. Boy am I happy. Did I already say that? Sorry for being happy, not very English.... Sorry.... :-)

    Thanks Antej. All I can say is sorry... I did have to sell a Bessa R and a couple of lenses to free up the cash though.

    So......How much is this information NOT getting to your wife worth?

    Don't be sorry, I'm actually in that crazy pre-buy phase now where you can't take your eyes off Ebay and similar sites and local camera stores... It's a lot of fun. I might have found one, my dad found a 1969 500C with a Sonnar 150/4 and two backs for 440 Euros. Seems to be a good price. We'll see.

    Oh sure, we all conspire not to tell your missus and then, when she does find out, we all get whacked over the head with the same rolling pin she's going to use on you! :o

    Phew. Still alive. Came clean and survived. To soften the blow I showed her a picture that I would like to use a basis for a portrait of her and our puppy which she loved so all I have to do now is deliver the goods. Should be fun trying out the new camera and getting the dog to sit still!

    He will. Dogs can feel what is at stake.

    Depends on who the dog likes best. If it wants your wife all to itself, then your screwed.

    As an example, I have been trying to get this type of shot for years and the two who favor her refuse to sit still. The three who like me best are angles. now I have two children and you can only imagine the frustration. Five dogs, two small boys, and one wife, fills the frame with blur.

    If not, take the dog to a few dog shows, it will learn.
