I shoot a lot of motorsports. I've found if I ignore all the fancy stuff on my K200D and use it like my old ME Super it works great for what I shoot. YMMV!

Most of us who are older started shooting sports on manual cameras before auto focus was invented. In a couple of years, the entry level cameras will have K5 specs.
Lol. My first camera was a Pentax SP1000 which was a hand me down. I bought the Program Plus brand new. That camera lasted me a long time. In fact I still have it. The K-x is my first DSLR and my first SLR with autofocus.

i've shot sport with the SuperA (also called SuperProgram) some times. It's not that hard at all you just get less picture at the end of the run than with a dslr but picture tend to be nicer : you've got one shot every second -if you're fast with lever- so you just click at the very best moment

I had a friend years ago that took surfing pictures with a Practica that got published on several occasions. Some of that old East German Zeiss glass that came with the Practica sells for big bucks today.
