Using Pentax pro gear, K7 with FA* lenses.

Hello my name is Reese and I shoot elite level Olympic type sports using Pentax pro gear, most of the events being at the world cup level. I have never encountered another Pentax shooter using pro gear but trust me, the K7
with FA* lenses (I don't have any DA* lenses yet) produce as good or better
images to those of Nikon or Canon gear. The color transmission of the SMC glass is fantastic and for that reason I am sticking with Pentax. Examples of my work, including a world record being set in swimming, can be found on Flickr:

Now lets keep our collective fingers crossed for a full frame DSLR by 2012!!

Welcome Reese.
Fabulous high-profile action shots on your photostream - and a good testimony for Pentax gear.
Ever considered being an ambassadorial Pentaxian?
Glad to have you on board and hope to see your contributions here in the future.

Hi Reese,

Welcome to this forum. I hope you will enjoy it!
They always tell us Pentax is not good enough for high-profile action shots, nice to see you disagree!

GReat experience with long lenses. I'm probably even more interested in a full frame than you...cross my fingers too...but probably you prefer a big body when I need a small/rugged like. Who knows...
