  • Yes, I think I would count photographing steam trains as "Sports photography" as we are often looking for that ideal image in a number o others- you know the thing, rods down, decent exhaust, ...
  • Replied in TAv
    Yes I know, but on Pentax it has a separate spot on the mode dial, which means that M is a purely manual mode, nothing for  the camera to set at all (although you can ask it to set what it thinks ...

  • Yes, sticky aperture blades/lever I reckon: Camera tells lens to stop down to say f8 but lens doesn't stop down correctly and you get over exposure. I have a Tamron 28-75 that tends to do this in ...
