    Switch to Canon and then I'll no longer want to use my gear.
    In all seriousness, she switched from Canon to Nikon to share gear.
    Have you compared a 5D Mk IV to a D850?
    it's not even a close comparison.

    Buy all new gear. If you have two of everything then there's no need to share. :p

    but that was the whole idea: getting compatible gear so that we could reduce duplication ;)

    Reminds me of something I heard before:

    What is hers is hers, and what is yours is hers.

    Taking photos is something I can not persuade mine to do. I should be thankful though, 'cause when she uses a tool, she leaves it where she uses it instead of putting it back;)

    Back-button AF control

    However if she knows about how to use that, yeah you just need to buy every bit of kit twice!

    So you have the same cameras so that you can share gear. :1219:
    Now you complain that you two are sharing too much gear. :aufsmaul:

    The only solution
    Borrow her camera body :allteeth:
    and misplace it (ie, hide it) ......... :angry:
    But don't allow her to borrow your camera body. :boogie:

    Of course, that may only work for a short time as there are fixes to that scenario; some verbal :76: and others based on $$$. :icon_pissedoff:
