K-1 can be a sporty camera in good light.

What entices people to do things such as that? I suppose just to prove that they can.

Super nice shot. Nice job. I just ordered DA *300mm f/4.0. I hope it is just as sharp as your lens.

I now desperately want a D-FA 150-450, or really, if I had the cash, a sports camera (D4S/D5/1DXII etc) with some long fast sharp glass, like 2.8/300 and higher. I'd keep Pentax for everything else, but a true sports camera with a couple of dedicated sports lenses is on the cards for the next couple of years. Fast action is by far my favourite photographic challenge. Gets the blood pumping.

I was click away from ordering D-FA 150-450, but ordered DA *300mm/f4 for the extra sharpness ..not that D-FA 150-450 is not sharp. I just love prime lenses. I am waiting when Pentax will come out with something like 600mm f/4. Almost all the bird shooters I shoot with use Canon 1DXII with 600mm f/4 (about $18,000 setup, not including tripod and the rest :-)))...way out of my price range, but super nice setups.

As a possible compromise, I've looked at a used D4s and perhaps the Sigma 2.8/120-300 with teleconverter for added reach. You are right. This is where photography steps up a gear and the financials get ugly.

I don't quite catch your meaning but I'm assuming that it is some kind of compliment so I will say thank you.

That and the sufficient remuneration they get when done professionally!
