LOL. But did you let the kids keep score or do they just play to have fun and you ignore the score so they can all feel good? ;-)
How do you like the 100-400L? It looks extremely sharp from samples I've seen out of it...does it feel like anything from the Pentax lineup like maybe the Bigma? I'm a bit surprised 400mm isn't enough to cover the field...

It was high school varsity boys, so they were keeping score all right, I just wasn't paying attention to it.

The 100-400L is a great lens. When I'm out shooting wildlife/birds, I tend to keep it locked at 400mm, but it's nice to be able to zoom back out if needed. My copy is sharp as can be wide open at 400mm.

As for the field, I started out on the sidelines but moved to the "endzone" (is that what they call it in soccer?) as the light was better from that angle (game was 2 PM on a bright clear day) If the team was on that side of the field, it did ok, but 400mm wasn't quite long enough to reach the opposite side of the field. That's why it was funny seeing that woman with the 70-200 in the stands.
