First: Which magazine are you the paparazzi for? I looked at him and with a wink I said: Playboy! Oh wow, he said, can you come over to my place and shoot my girlfriend for a centre fold? (I declined)

Third: Yes you are he said I can see that by your camera. Oh no I said, I am not! Professional people shoot with NIKONs and CANONs this is just an ordinary PENTAX.

(My friends reckon I should have taken up the centre fold offer)
Your friends are smarter then you are

I was seen as professional too when I was walking with K-5 and 60-250 on monopod hanging over my shoulder. That is an impressive combination.

Some girls asked me wheater I would make a portrait of them (should have told them that I'm from playboy to, but didn't have your information at the time.

Hope you don't mind if I throw in a few "non K-5" sport shots ... I still couldn't convince myself (or my wife) that I need to upgrade.
Those are very nice shots. I did some polo to some weeks ago, but making that one great shot isn't easy.

More pictures

Here some more pictures taken with the K5 and Sigma 70-200 HSM II. The K5 does a much better job than my old K10d. Focus tracking seems to be working. More action pics at www.dijkx.com

Can't wait to add to this thread. I have been shooting motorcycle races with my K20D and Bigma. Yesterday I pulled the trigger and order the K5, should have it by Wednesday. Then next Sunday I will be shooting the Rocky Mountain Mini Motor guys Homeand will be trying out the K5 with my Pentax 50-200 Tamron 100-300. Should be fun. )

Well that is a nice perspective and until then just smuggle in a few off your old shots. Then we know if it's word waiting for your K-5 shots

Some really nice captures in that series Dijkx - particularly the cyclist in green and the very last shot.

Thanks Frogfish, the cyclist in the green is Mark Cavendish, winner of the green jersey in the Tour de France.

Oh that's what he looks like As a fellow Brit I also follow his name to see how he gets on in the Tour de France. He's been close on a few occasions so great to see him win it this year .... incredible sprinter.

That are nice pictures of cyclist, not an easy sport since it just races by and doesn't stop for the picture.

They come very fast towards you, difficult for the camera to keep track with the cyclist. So the K5 does a great job here.

Enjoy

I got some mountain bike shots of Mark Morris yesterday. The K-5 killed it. Enjoy!
