Thanks. :) My 50/1.2 is the A version, but from what I've read, the optics are identical.

That's funny! My dad liked mine so much, he wanted one of his own after I visited with it. So, I found him a good used one down here, bright red, and drove it back up to him in Oregon. I just remembered I used the Takumar for that trip, too! I took the back-roads through the Mojave, then headed up 395.







Same day, 7,000 feet higher. Gotta love California!



This was two years ago. My dad still has his, but I don't have my blue one anymore. I just couldn't get used to the weird throttle response. I've never had so much trouble driving a stick (my dad's is an automatic). I have a Mirage now, also blue. I like little cars. ;)

It's a Pentax K-01 concept (no EVF, CDAF) with a L mount and full frame 24Mp. Pentax K-01 was a flop at the time , because no one had been brainwashed with the mirrorless thing. The K-01 was too early. In 2019 anything that's got a mirrorless sticker on it will be promoted. People brains of 2019 associate "mirrorless" = "good", the electrical path in the brain has been wired, it wasn't so at the time of the K-01.

Great picture, and now I've learned a new word and atmospheric phenomenon!



Last time I went to Barret-Jackson, I took only an SMC Takumar 55/1.8. I think it's a seriously under-valued lens. I like the rendering even better than the 50/1.4, and it costs a third as much.

It's a little tricky using a not-wide lens at a very busy car show, but it forces some unusual perspectives that I wouldn't otherwise think of.

On my first outing with it, married to a K-S2. All shot handheld, a bit 'keen' on using the full 300mm all the time, slightly blurry in places but putting that down to either not enough coffee, too much coffee, or inexperience panning etc. with respect to the plane snaps.

Amateur Photographers (UK) Predicts End for Pentax

I started in my mid 30's, then made the mistake of lending my original Pentax to my daughter for a class trip. The first trp she broke my original telephoto lens when my camera bag ended up at the bottom of everybody's backpack on the class trip. I ate that expense and bought a no name telephoto lens made by Access*Tempo. At least their name was good, but it was a significant step backwards from my Pentax Lens.

2 years later my daughter and my wife convinced me she had learned and my camera would be safe for a school trip from Colorado to England paid for by the students through numerous car washes, bake sales, pizza sales, etc. i.e. -- large contribution from Dad driving old car that was very clean. Then my daughter and my Pentax went to England. She shot numerous rolls of film that were to be developed in a photography class she was going to take where they wouldn't cost anything except for a significant class materials fee that is. When she got back she kept putting me off regarding my camera. Finally, after a week I demanded it and found that through some strange quirk of fate the insides of my camera was full of Sun Screen. Obviously, someone was trying to get back at her, but missed and hit my photo career.


With more kids in the pipeline I decided I just could not afford photography anymore, and went through a few years with disposable cameras. Finally, i crept into series of cheap Digital Cameras. Sci-Pix 1.5 MP, Concord 2.0 MP, Olympus 8 MP, GE X5 10 MP. Then, celebrating reaching 64 I bought me a K-3 and my wife a K-70. The old Pentax is waiting patiently on the shelf if my daughter ever wants to borrow a camera. .
