Brilliant razor-sharp images Gordon.
Simply professional.
Testimony to such an excellent lens and lens-operator.

Wow! Thanks Ash

K7 AF tracking is much improved on the K10.

Mate I'm going to give you 10/10 for these shots.It looks like you were in the right spot on the track.I can say that pro sports photographer wouldn't have done any better than what you have pulled off.As a lover for motorcycle,I would be happy to put a poster size of these on my garage wall.

flash1100 - so what is your final verdict on the AF speed of the K7? I'm interested in the same type of shooting and was wondering if I should go K7 or Canikon (would rather stay Pentax but not much invested yet)?

Nice pics by the way!!
