The “TAKUMAR” in the name of this lens immediately reminds me of Takuma Sato, a motorsports enthusiast who finished third on the podium in the 2004 F1 Championship in the United States, a distant second for Japanese racers. I cried when he finished 3rd on the podium, which is a far cry from the podium for Japanese racers.
He was the first Japanese to win the Indy 500-mile race in the U.S., and two years later, he won the race again, making him an amazing athlete.
I had a great time cleaning this one, remembering all the motorsports!
