Dan, are you sure your wife isn't secretly a forum member here?

anyway, that's what I call good luck.
I'm sure you'll enjoy 50-135

found this on ebay...wondering if it's worth a try. It's $150 less than BH or Adorama.

Pentax DA* Series 50-135mm f/2.8 ED IF SDM *NEW-DEMO* - eBay (item 270450753777 end time Oct-01-09 14:19:04 PDT)

Have a really good think about your priorities, then get a divorce.

Once you conceive, you have to make plans for image capture. This is the best excuse I know, and I stumbled apon it.

This simple shot convinced my wife the 77ltd was worth the purchase price:

Great shot! I didn't think he ever wound down.

You're WELCOME!


No longer have a garage at this new apartment, the tool cabinet was a gift from my brother 3 years ago and never used. Found the perfect use for it though! Upper drawer is perfect for flatware, lower drawers in bottom cabinet are bigger and deeper, perfect for storing wine, rum or other similar sized bottles of choice. Despite seeing all that it gets little use, I usually drink home brew I make.
I'll be over in an hour to help you empty that tool chest.

just pulled the trigger on this lens. went with BH since it was 2 day free shipping, as opposed to 7-10 day at Adorama.

and now, enjoy Dan
I'm sure you will, I had leant towards the primes this and last year, but this DA* is one exeptional zoom, very versatile, very handy, makes me wish there were more like it, without all those decentering, SDM failure and QC issues...

Buy here a $249 necklace, and if she starts asking about price, just tell her that the lens and necklace together were under $1000. She doesn't have have to know which contributed more to that bottom line...
As added insurance you may want to punctuate that with "and you deserve every penny of it".
