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?

It happened a few weeks before we were there. I was wondering if this was the actual bridge.

I was amazed at the detail that the camera caught behind the transparent drapes that were red. What I was seeing, and what came out in the color shot ( was just the red with very little detail of what was behind the drapes.

I agree. I think my mistake was made at the time I took the shot. I should have point metered instead of averaging. I tried adjusting in post but to no avail.

That was what I was trying for. The girl is my daughter and the guy her 4th grade crush. I was trying to document the moment and pull out a subject in the midst of a crowd.

I'm looking foreword to what you will do with this 6D, especially at the higher ISOs. This ISO 500 shot has no noticeable noise. Let's see some Hong Kong at night.

Taken at a feeding program for under nourished children living in a squatter community. The two guys are volunteers from the community and as it is a program sponsored by a church the guy in red must have felt compelled to wear a religious shirt. It is not uncommon to see guys wearing lipstick but it is uncommon to see it in a religious setting, thus the picture (and now you know).

I have not yet bought a flash unit and to be honest am a little intimidated by the thought of using flash. I have yet to study how. I need to go ahead and buy both a flash unit and a book on how to use flash. I do admire the shots where I suspect fill flash has been used but it was so subtle that I am not even sure that flash was used. The pop up flash on my 7D just blasts a bunch of light everywhere and I do not like the results. Maybe I should learn if I can use the pop up flash to add fill light. Any thoughts?
