Tell her you will:

Sell the not-too-old D7000 and downgrade to an old style, big, heavy, dinosaur type camera in order to bring some extra $$$ to the family.  And you demand a treat from her.

Your new, lowly camera should be a D80, ie D800 with a "0" scratched off.

A dumb wife will buy your story.  A smart wife, by playing herself dumb, enjoys man with creative idea.  You won't lose either way.

I would NOT see this as "being creative", a smart (actually unless she is a total moron..) woman would know he is being deceitful.
