Addiction LXVI

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

You are halfway there. Get off the pot and down to your neighborhood camera emporium.

You and Jack Reacher. Do you carry your toothbrush in your shirt pocket?

It's a medium format sensor, so it's pretty common to see aperture ranges starting at 3.5 and slower and able to stop down to f/32 or even f/64 - remember that with a large sensor, getting isolation is easy but getting enough depth of focus can be a concern.

I'd love to play with that camera, though. What's the kit lens it comes with?
