Challenge has finished
This is the second in a series of "xxx DSLR only" challenges. "If you're into sports photography, Pentax won't be on top of your list." At least, so they say. True, frame rates were low and buffers were small. With these limitations, Pentaxians argue, you just have to be a better photographer. Show us your skills capturing fast moving things. Trains, planes, cars, animals, people - it's your call, but make sure that the subject is razor sharp.

Who said Pentax couldn't shoot action? This was shot with an 800mm F8.0 Mirror lens, Manual Focus!, Auto ISO and Shutter Priority... Gotta Love Focus Trap and Shake Reduction for all lenses.
