Challenging shots with the K-01!

Action, sports, shallow DOF, extreme dynamic range, split-second timing - I would be interested to see your 'challenging shots' from the K-01 (the sort of shots which the naysayers believe are impossible with a non-OVF camera) and how you adapted your technique to achieve them.

The most challenging photo since I got the K-01 is the first one - with K 500/4.5 handheld. There is a big forest fire close to where I live as you can see in the night photo (again handheld 75-150/4 @150mm). The B/W photo is again with 500mm but this time on a tripod.
Other photos are from the World Championships in Aerobic Gymnastics. AF all the time and no problems.

For me it's a little easier to shoot action with K-01 because my face is not glued to the viewfinder and it's really easy to look where the action is and point the camera in that direction.
For the last shot I just pre-focused on the bench and waited for my son to jump. Really easy.

O wow, nice shots. I wil contribute in some time, since I also use my K-01 for these things now and then.

I love the last shots, but the gymnast captures are incredible - great timing!
