Saw a D200 in person-wife vetoed purchase!

Had a surprise tonight, the local Ritz had the D200 in stock. Wow it was nice to hold! I want it! Unfortunately my spouse was with me and can't understand why I need another camera (I have the D70 & D50). Its not easy explaining to her why I need this camera. I listed some logical (to me anyway) reasons and she just stared blankly. She loves my pictures, but doesn't understand technical stuff at all.

Oh well. I will survive not bringing it home tonight. I have one ordered, I'm on the list, somewhere else. I'll just have to wait a little longer. If I decide to keep the secret it will take a long time before she realizes I have another camera. To her it will look like the D70 (shes never looked too close). Anyway I was hoping this would be amusing. I'm sure I'm not the only one with a spouse who just doesn't understand!
