Default I'm a gearwhore, and my wife is an enabler...



She got me the D600 + 24-85, 20mm 2.8, and 50mm 1.4 for Christmas/Birthday presents, and I couldn't be happier! Never thought I'd ever have a full frame. Loving it so far!

The 50mm 1.4G is so amazing!

Here's some of it...







Not to mention another D700 and a bunch of other lenses...

I don't have a wife, but I do have a GF who is more than happy to enable my camera spending sprees (but then again I can't say anything when she comes back home with another Michael Kors purse to add to the 20 or so she already has...)

I can understand it if a wife buys her man all this good stuff for Xmas/Birthday but your GF must either be well-off or have a very successful career to be buying you stuff like this on a whim. Out of curiosity, do you buy her a lot of expensive stuff too?

Seems like a bit a dicky thing to post in this thread - "mine is bigger than yours."
