what shutter speed did i use?

i wanna play a little game with this shot "guess the shutter speed". it was taken with the DA* 60-250 f4 at 250mm and f4. sadly not mine, i played around with it at a photo show over the weekend. $2000 isn't in my budget right now

It was taken with a K100D at F4.0, 1/20th, ISO 800, in Av mode, using muli-zoned metering, manual WB, etc, etc. There's so much info in exif

At least I find it pretty much impossible to tell what shutter speed someone used, since after all they may have used a long exposure on a tripod or something for the same effect as a short exposure using a different ISO.

However, if I know what lens they used, and how close the object is I may have a pretty good idea what f-stop they used.
