It's a really nice gesture on her part. If you don't take her up on it but then go spend the same money on yourself, she'd feel bad - if you accept it from her as a gift, think how much more she'll enjoy seeing you enjoy the camera! If you just don't think the two of you should spend the money, that's one thing. But if someone is gonna spend it on camera gear for you, letting her do it is the way to go IMHO!I'm very impressed with the IQ of the RX1. I really would feel guilty if she spent nearly $3000 on a camera for me. I'd feel better if I forked the money myself. Not that it really matters at this point given that we are married.
OK, that's all of the marital advice I'm offering today!
