I had sort of the same conversation last night with the lovely woman that has put up with me for over 40 years. I was telling her about a couple of lenses I am interested in, the Pentax 50-135 and the Sigma 17-70. She asked me how much the Pentax was and I told her about $750. Her comment was...."you must be crazy wanting to spend that much". I gently reminded her that 3 months ago, she spent $3,200 for a sewing machine (she is a quilter, and a damn good one). Her reply was...."Yes, that's true, but I know what I am doing". Ouch, like a dagger to the heart.

That makes you roughly 25% as good as she is;$750.00 / $3,200= 23.44%.

Now, I know that almostt 50% of the new cameras are purchased by female photographer enthusiasts or Professional photographers. I cannot write the same article on the point of view of a woman, but I sure would like to read it from a woman's point of view.

Maybe it's as simple as "I get the shoes, the purses, the clothes, the jewelry and the camera and lenses as well." Any questions?

I am not one that discriminate at all and I truely would never write anything that would offend anyone. My wife actually reminded me that I should seek the point of view of one or more female photographer. So please write.

Thank you,

I can vouch from first hand experience that it does.

My wonderful wife buys me about as many lenses as I buy her. She had an SLR decades before me whereas my only film SLR was a hand-me-down K1000 she gave me to get me going in the hobby. She also had the first DSLR, her Pentax istD.

Our only expensive (>$300) lenses are the manual Pentax Macro I bought her and the auto Pentax Macro she bought me years later. I don't think any of our dozen non-Macro lenses cost over $200. Sure, you get what you pay for, but for us the difference is not worth it for our needs.
