Re: About to buy camera for wife

The beauty of a DSLR to one person can be a drawback to another. Like, the changeable lens system is what a DSLR is all about, getting the correct lens for the job in hand. That means having to buy & carry a number of different lenses when you go out. This is too much of a hassle for some, so they buy fixed lens cameras with a 20-30x optical zoom lens. If you both had the same make of DSLR then you could interchange lenses. Remember Canon lenses & Nikon lenses are NOT interchangeable. However, as has been said already, if you want to buy without her knowing, buy from a shop with a returns policy, then if she is not happy she can go choose one herself. I do think it's great that the 2 of you can share a hobby. My wife has started to show an interest, & when we go out together it's so much more enjoyable. Good hunting my friend.
