I got the hitch on Amazon for about $135. It’s a Curt model 11463. Fits several different years and model Civics, but won’t work with center exit exhaust. Installation is not too difficult but exhaust needs to be lowered and a heat shield trimmed as well as drilling some holes. I installed it myself with the rear of the car on ramps in my driveway. It works well but I wish the recover tube was a little higher. The bottom of my bike rack drags on driveway entrances but the hitch itself never touches the ground. I’m planning to have a local welding shop ad a 2” receiver tube on top of the 1 1/4 tube so I can use my bigger bike rack and get more ground clearance too. Other hitch options, more info and installation instructions can be found at:

Nice I don't have anything faster than my f/1.4 Sigma 50 and shots are very soft at f/1.4.
I have the Canon 50mm 1.2L and it's very soft wide open. Keeps me from using it much. That pic was taken with 85mm 1.2L II

Dang, 1.8 is already creamy, can't imagine shooting super soft at 1.2 🤤 Has its particular uses I would guess

Soft meaning not very sharp. The bokeh is pretty sweet though.
