Was annoyed as that event was pretty good to take pics at, and I didnt get as many keepers as I wanted. All my other pics from other things have worked how I wanted, just not the sport stuff. And I play around a lot with the settings and am comfortable with low light, night and other kinds of scenarios. Will find another sport event and have a go at getting more keepers in next time. Been looking for a fixed length lens which will do well, but they are quite pricey and not worth it for me considering I don't do much action photography.

I didnt see many Pentax DLSR at the event...but quite a few white canon lenses around me.
Oh well, the weather was nice over the weekend so it shouldn't be much of a problem lighting wise, just keep shooting and have fun!

I was there Saturday just after they wrap up, and I saw a guy with a K-5 w/ a long DA* lens and someone else using a K-r I think.
