    HI
    Bit tongue-in- cheek but whats the most ridiculous price you've lied about to your partner on your latest photographic purchase?

    I said I purchased the GX! with Panasonic 25mm for £350..or how about the LVF2 Finder for £30

    These lies come back to bite your widow when she tries to sell all your stuff and gives it away!!! I have seen it happen with telescopes, the lady had no idea what it was worth and one SOB was bragging about how cheap he got it.

    My lying completely stopped when I got divorced, so did hers incidentally too. :eek:

    I've made my habit self sustaining. Gotta sell something to fund a new something (I do it with my HiFi too). A lot of the time I'm in the black and a few times I used the profit to buy my wife some cool presents. Never need to lie.

    I don't tell, and my wife has never asked.

    Similar position.... I am better with finances and bailed her out once, so she doesn't really have a concern.
