Another Takumar 50mm f/1.4 shot. Thanks to Jeff for pointing me toward this novel little gem.  Of the old 50mm f/1.4 lenses it is definitely among the best.  I don't know that this photo necessarily used its particular characteristics to the max but it's what I had on the camera (Fuji X-T1) at the time.

Wonderful image-making Scott. Your framing of this shot creates a very unique and interesting perspective of this airframe. BTW, normally I regret infecting others with peculiar habits. However, I'm glad I was able to peak your interest with the Takumars. That little tank looks terrific on your Fuji.

Thank you Jeff. The Pentax infection has been fun and it really does suit the Fuji very well.

Originally viewed this on my iPhone. Way more impressive and interesting on a large monitor. For some reason I always thought this hulk was another aircraft type but it sure is a B-47. Not a particularly common version I don't think. Maybe John can clue us in on what version it is. It always amazes me to see what was once a highly advanced front line aircraft just rotting away like this.  Fortunately there are a good number of B-47s preserved around the country including the very nice example at Pima.

Thanks Scott. While I'm the least qualified AzAP member regarding aircraft identification, I also thought this might be a unique airframe. As seen in my photo below, it has two "glass" panels on the side of the nose cone. It has these on both sides. When I "Google" images of the B-47, the only examples I could find with that trait was the XB-47 prototype and a B-47 at Edwards with a very pointed nose (designation unknown). Of course, I have no confidence in any of these findings, but I'm hoping they spur John and others to offer correction and/or clarification.

Looks like its the second of ten B-47As (49-1901).  Sitting next to it is the B-45 Tornado (47-0063) nose I was thinking of.

Just needs a little oil and it'll run like Swiss watch.

Before there was the Mirage, there was the Mystère

Scott I am absolutely in love with that Mystere shot.  I'm guessing that's another Takumar image?

Thank you Joe! Yes, taken with a 50mm Takumar at f/2 on an X-T1 body (1.5x crop). The bokeh is nice but in retrospect I wish the canopy was in slightly better focus but it would sharpen up the background too.  There are some issues (in my mind at least) with the editing so I might have another go at it.
