Just wanted to say thanks for all the great dialogue here. I may not be able to get on here shortly because my wife will probably kill me or at least break my fingers when she finds out I just bought that new K20D. You only go around once, you may as well go around broke.
I'm trying to figure out how to get a D700 into the house.

Wonder what MY wife will break.

Plus you have other disadvantages; like the Snow Snakes crawl up your pants leg and bite you!!! Down here in sunny southern New Mexico all we got is Gila Monsters.

G Money - You did the right thing.

It's easier to seek forgiveness versus securing permission.

Cheers!

Flash and Lens were my sneak

I bought a 540 flash and told her the 360 flash price, but I pay the bills.

Then I took lots of nice pictures of her and showed her how the lighting was so even and made her look even more beautiful.

All she said was "good - you better take some nice pictures at my great-neices first birthday party this weekend".

Whew! Of course, she does not know about the 55-300 lens yet!

I am reminded of my (late) uncles advice to me (with my bride standing at my shoulder) at our wedding:

"when you go to bed tonight and hang your pants over the end of the bed, tell your wife, that in the morning when we get up..I put those on.... "

.....oops gotta go!! Anne's coming...

Broke is one thing, broken bones quite another. Just make sure you are not holding the camera when she brakes your fingers

Pentax should make a k200d decal to cover up the k20d.

That's it. Make up a fake Canadian rebate in photoshop, for like $300.00 off, and say you couldn't pass up the deal. Tell her that once you sell the K10D you'll be almost even. Use a form something like the one below, and fill it out and tell her you sent it in. Then hope she forgets all about the rebate in a couple months. If she doesn't, and brings it up, show her the other posts on this forum about how long those darn rebates take. I always have forgotten about my rebates by the time I finally receive the check, hopefully she'll forget all about it eventually too. However, if she's got a good memory.....
