August 14th Photoshoot, a photo by Roberto_Aloi on Flickr.

What does this photograph have to do with a 46 year old?

The lens naturally! This was my first chance using my 28mm 3.5 Super Takumar lens. I had read about them on the internet and they seemed to have a rabid following.

I have always enjoyed the feel of my old Nikon 35MM SLR lenses. This lens proved to be even more substantial.

It’s really true they don’t make lenses like this anymore. Manually focusing was a treat. It’s evident why it’s 45 years old and still working like it was just produced yesterday.

I can only hope my new lenses will last as long, but I will not hold my breath.

I have since acquired other universal M42 lenses and I have more on my bucket list…
