D,

You are correct.

I say that with every baby Linhof sold comes a free gym membership.

I can say the same for the Leica SL. The criticism of the 50 Lux being massive and heavy are true. The thing that goes unsaid is the rendering is wonderful. I love this lens. Does not get better than this. Know that I own a Noct-Nikkor and a 50 Lux-R "E60" which are also outstanding.

These three lenses on a CL become 75's or in the case of the Noct-Nikkor and 87/1.2. The sweet spot is perfection on a CL.

BTW my right arm is deformed and is about 1 inch longer than my left. It is also much more muscular. I'm a skinny guy, but my arms are disproportionally big. Also I have an ugly neck that is thick like a football player. Looks odd on a skinny guy.
