It's been a while since I shot with my Pentax cameras since picking up a mirrorless camera, which has been my daily camera. I took them out for some sports shooting today and the K-5 really shined in action. The K20D did a decent job as backup, but it obviously suffers from the lower frame rate and poorer AF-C. BTW, UChicago won 41-17.

Thanks. I shot them in TAv mode. The 70-200 shots (2, 6) were at f/4, 1/4000 and around ISO 400. The rest were with the Sigma 170-500 at varying focal lengths, wide open at f/5.6-6.7, ISO 800-1600. Overall, the 70-200 was a much better performer in terms of autofocus and sharpness, but oddly my favorite shots today came from the 170-500.
