Its a little bear statue made out of Iron. Cant remember where it came from, but it keeps the gamma 2 from lifting up from all the heavy cords at the back.
I would describe the EF-5 as extremely competent, but not very noteworthy. It does a great job, but doesnt do it in any sort of special way. It will stay with me for a while, but it probly wont be a long term keeper.
