Trying to find old K-5 sports thread

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to find a thread that was started when the K-5 was introduced. I'm not sure that it started as a sports thread, but it turned into a discussion about how the K-5 was a major advance for Pentax sports shooting. One of the main contributers was a guy who was already doing some great college sports work, remember his amazing HDR looking wide stadium shots? I wanted to follow up with some of the people in there that were doing sports work to see how now that it is a year later, the K-5 has worked out for them. I tried doing some forum searches using sports and other related terms, but I could not find it. Was the title something like "Why as a professional the K-5 makes my life easier" or something like that? If anyone remembers this, and can point me to it, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I remember that shot - I believe it was some Colorado University Football Stadium taken from one corner top row. It was a stunning shot and if I rememeber correctly was used in one of the Univerity magazines - unfortuantley none of this helps you , but I think that was what you were talking about, I don't remember where the picture was posted but best of luck (and let us know if you find it).

Thanks to both of you. That gave me enough info to find it in a search by his ID here.
