Budget DSLR for indoor sport?
Jul 29, 2013

I have been looking for the budget DSLR set up for indoor sport - mostly ice hockey. I do hockey videos and have some experience with figure skating going back to 35mm, and understand how difficult this task is, but developed severe itch for it

Don't want to spend arms and legs for FF camera and thinking of Nikon 5200 or Pentax K-30.
I have tried Canon T2i some time ago and was not impress much even with Tamron 70-200 F2.8 set up. Also had a chance to play with Sony A57 and had very mixed impression. BTW I found Sony video quality very overrated.

So, do you think I can get something decent with Pentax K-30 and Something like Pentax 50-135mm f/2.8 glass - or I am just pipe dreaming?
BTW - I still have a few PK mount lenses from the good old days and a few Canon FDs.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
