Interesting Moose--odd about the macro ability of the Rx10--one really does 
need to read about it.  I would like to try it.  I hope the current contagion

Curiously a friend who is a very occasional substitute Othello management is 
going on a trip and rented an Rx100VII from lensrentals and assumed I could 
teach her A to Z and set it up.

tempted in the least.
