Default SO excited!

My DH completely floored me this Christmas. I have been wanting a certain lens for a long time, but it's always been out of our budget.

However, guess what was under the tree this morning????? I could hardly believe it. He sold one of his trombones to buy it for me. (He's a professional trombonist.)

For the other photographer nuts like me: it's the Nikon 105mm 2.8 macro lens with VR. I'm in love! (Although I'm still in complete shock, too. Also fighting not feeling guilty about it, since he did what he did. He keeps telling me to not feel guilty, so I'm trying!)

Attaching some pictures that I took while I was playing around. It's so much fun, and the quality is great!

That is SO cool! I'm totally jealous, but I think your DH is a total sweetheart. And I agree with the PP - try not to feel guilty, he did it because he loves you!

I'm really really trying to not feel guilty! It doesn't help that I do all of our finances and know what other things that money could have been used for. Sigh. I am the WORST person at accepting nice things like this for myself.

Sharing another picture though.
