I'm surprised you can use such lenses, must be a bright place, I can't even get by with an F4 lens at an indoor ice hockey rink, it really pushes the ISOs up.

Brighter than normal with 1 wall of glass and a sunny day

I was shooting 1/640 f4-5.6 iso 3200

whereas average is

1/400 f4 iso 1600

and bad

1/180 f2.8 iso 6400

Be interesting how it performs under mixed orange sodium my K5 used to hate that refusing to focus under what I considered workable light ev1-2.

Juts been playing with the k3 in low light it will focus 4sec f2.8 iso3200 !! I can't even see what it focusing on till I take the shot.
