Re: Argh!

Just spoke to the guy (finally getting past the security of the auction site). Real fanatic he has Leica M9, A7, A7R, A99 and will get the A7S as soon as it hits! RX1 is just one cam too many, but he does say it's a special camera.

Nice guy. I am pleased I spoke to him. Now... just waiting for it to arrive. Oh, have the small matter of paying for it first

Re: Argh!

Lol. I think a huge cowbell on my desk is rather drawing attention to it, sadly.

Im thinking maybe sell a couple of other cams to justify. Nex 5n and RX100 spring to mind. Logical conclusion

It doesn't matter what part of the world you come from, David.  It's the same everywhere.  You now have to get your other half something of equal or greater value.  And, I would do it before the new RX 1 comes in the mail.

Re: Argh!

Glückwunsch, guter Kauf! Me being a little bit nosey - how much do you have to pay for it? And was/is it in mint condition (shutter count low?)? Did you buy it on ebay.us or within Europe?

No problem. In switzerland. 2121 chf inc posting locally. With case, hood, and EVF, 1000 "Trips" as they say, and from dec 2013.  I think it should be pretty OK!

The "marriage" cost is double the real cost. :-/

I like my brother's solution. He worked out a budget with his wife where they both get an allowance for such purchases.

P.S.  Congrats on the new camera, salla30.  The RX1 packs a some serious IQ in a very small package.

Re: Argh!

Thanks Daniel

I tend to buy in haste and repent at leisure in that regard.

Congrats on the new cam, David! You're lucky that the weather is nice now so sleeping in the dog house won't be all that bad.

I have a clause in my will.....

"please don't let my Wife sell my cameras/lenses for what I told her they cost "!

Tee hee.

LOL!

That's a great idea! I have to add that clause to my will.

Re: Argh!

haha, I relate- this is how I bought my first DSLR, a D80 kit on ebay where no one else bit and ending in the middle of the night when I was on call and somewhat delirious.  That was an awkward conversation with the wife!

enjoy the cam!

Re: Argh!

Congratulations! You know, the design of the Cybershot RX cameras are quite similar. Maybe your wife would think it's just the RX100.

awesome. congrats. She married you, she knows.

btw, get a copy of the original sales receipt, Sony's warranty is transferrable, copy, not original, just to prove date of sale/warranty period is all Sony requires. Was there another warranty?

Keep that rx100 for Oscar. Get him an adjustable wrist strap, like I do with AVA, she knows: wrist in, adjust strap length, now turn it on.
