This image was made with a 4x5 Tachihara, a Calumet 210mm Caltar II s lens. It was made on a rig road north of Grand Junction, CO, in the bookcliff mtn's . Temp was in the 20's F. About a mile back to the left I passed a oil/gas rig on fire. The flames were like a vertical blow torch about 50-60 feet high. The lower half of the derrick had collapsed due the intense heat and no one in sight, and it was very, very loud. But this scene was so serene I had to stop and try to get an image. In the original, the fog was much heavier. PS

I've often (obviously just in recent years) have thought that you can have a photo contest where one tries to capture confused people trying to determine if they should pass in front of the person taking a selfie or behind them. It would be simple to capture the shot; all one would need to do is follow me as I am constantly dumbfounded by this scenario.

I did a quick overview on the lens on Wikipedia. Then I went to B&H to see if it is available and read the reviews. It appears that the Takumar design has been discontinued but they are still available on ebay (and reasonable priced at that) . But I need to read up more on this before I can make any kind of decision. On B&H the few reviews that I read on the Pentax are saying that the 100mm struggles with CA, which was my struggles with this photo. I did find some Groups on Flickr that feature Takumar and will peruse it some later this evening.

Sell me on it. Why Pentax SMC Takumar?
