Pff. K20D's underrated!

I went to night rugby game on Wed night, not the best lighting, only 4 light towers, good enough to play. Set the camera on manual to 1/250, f2.8 (though I had a 1.4x on), and ISO4500! I'm not a manual boy, so lucky I remembered how to set the ISO manually (press OK and rotate one of the dials). Even then they were underexposing a bit.

Still not startling results, but better 'n nothing.

And Af was surprisingly good, relatively speaking, I thought it would really struggle and I would have to go manual on that too. But nope, coped just as it did for the day shots.
