I am in about the same place as you it seems. I have a new K-X I am learning to use. I am trying to photograph my kids doing sports.

Here is one I got, that I am pleased with:


This was done with the 55-300 lens at 55mm, 1/200, f4, and 3200 iso. It is a compression of the full frame taken in the best jpg mode.

As pleased as I am with this picture (very), I think your picture looks better than mine.

Aside from buying a $1,000+ lens, I wonder how can I (we) make better pictures?

I have a Tamrac 5625. The k-x with the 55-300 lens fits well. I like it, it is not a cheaply made bag. It was not cheap. You might not like it because the lens does rest on the bottom of the bag.

This may or may not be useful, but in this link SMC Pentax-DA L 55-300mm F4-5.8 ED Lens Reviews - Pentax Lens Review Database the 4th or so post down somebody talks about replacing the plastic mount with a metal one.

When I was a teenager I played with an old rangefinder and also a bellows camera that my Dad had stored away, and even had a part time darkroom in one of the baths. Somehow in those days I came in possession of a Pentax brochure and I had dreams of buying a real nice SLR camera like the ones in my booklet.

Now I am few years and a few basic point and shoot cameras later in life, and finally followed through on buying a nice SLR for myself. I seriously considered some other brands but after reading reviews and price shopping, I decided on a Pentax K-x with two lens kit. UPS brought it today.

Favorite picture from this afternoon:
