The Polar bear. It's got all the greatness of other bears, and many extra's, that the other's don't. ;)

Brown bears...they eat a lot of nuts and berries..their meat is more tender than ones that eat meat a lot and therefore taste better.

False. Black bear.

Honestly I don't have a favorite. I like what I want to be in focus to be in focus and what I don't to not be and sometimes I don't really care as long as the main subject is.

Kudos to those who caught my reference.

I'm curious when you guys are postprocessing, do you have moments, 'darn wish i shot this picture at a different f stop.

Only when one eye is out of focus or when there is some busy crap in the background that I wish i blurred to a smeared color.

Yep, when my background is too in focus, I wish I had gone wider open.

Yes, of course. Sometimes it's a matter of not having the time to select the most appropriate aperture, and sometimes... it occurs to you when you look at it more on the monitor, that a different aperture might have been wiser. Nobody's perfect. ;)

Sometimes, but often if I'm not sure I bracket apertures.

But then often I can't decide which is best anyway.

Apparently my median aperture locally is 4.5, but that includes both the 5DII and S95.

From my Yellowstone trips this year it looks to be about f9, which is probably a little low because I took a bunch of shots of a friends cat at ~f2. But then I did take a number of 'landscape' shots at f1.4-f2.8.

f6.3 - if you ignore the decimal point (oh, and the 'f') then you have 63 which is the decimal equivalent of the largest two-digit (unsigned) octal number. I'm sure there's a photographic application for that somewhere...???
