They look good to me but a macro lens is not ideal for fast moving subjects. Macro lenses are made for precise focusing, not for fast focusing. The Sigma 70-200 will give you better results IMO.

Cheers

That is really nice!
Greek rep. has invited me to the presentation of K-7 on 6th of July. They asked me to speak to the visitors about my 22 years of experience with Pentax gear. I will also present some of my nature photographs.

I hope the 3 units will be in Athens on time and that we'll have the chance to test the final product.
See you there!:)

Common sense my friend. Newer cameras use to have better image quality than those they replace. Except if you believe Pentax engineers are a bunch of jerks.

Features are equally important to IQ. Do you remember the whining regarding the lack of features of the K20D despite its great IQ?

IQ from preproduction cameras? I though that we will have cameras with final firmwear. I personally will buy one with finalized firmwear. I don't know about you.

If I wanted to be as irrational as you are I could call you a RH devotee but I won't ;)

Does it really matters?
Personally I don't care. I wait to see some samples taken by some skilled photographers and then I will make my conclusions about the IQ. You see, I hate conspiracy theories. :)

We don't really know if he took pictures of the girl or general pictures that the girl was just a part of the whole. I believe the latter.

sorry for my poor English:)

The Greek photographer Pericles Antoniou from Athens Greece, was arrested in London England during the Greek Orthodox Easter for taking photographs of a girl in the London Metro.

Mr. Antoniou, who has a 25-year experience in artistic photography, was sent to jail, shoeless and was not allowed to communicate with any of his family; he is expected on a hearing soon this month.

Mr. Antoniou is also a member of Greek Caravan of Solidarity, which was featured in ?VXS.gr (BETA) - TV ????? ??????

As he claims in his letter to the Greek Ambassador in England, he was visiting London England due to the Greek Easter seasons, and as a “tourist” he took his camera and rushed to the streets of the British capital city seeking themes to shoot. While on the subway, the mother of a child complained about the fact that he was taking photos of her underage daughter. Mr. Antoniou apologised to the mother and erased all photos which depicted her daughter. However, the father of the youngster was not satisfied with this, and on the next train station asked for the help of police officers, who arrested the Greek visitor.

”They arrested me and locked me up on the cell of the local Police Station, they deprived of every rights I had; they neither allow my wife to visit me on the cell nor my 14 year old son and his friends; and I was under a strict solitary confinement during the night. After taking all my personal belongings: my watch, my shoes, and my cell phone, they finally seized my camera”, Mr. Antoniou explains.

The next day, Good Friday, the Greek photographer was brought on court where he was told that he is accused under the Public Order Act 1986 (sections 5,1 and of Act 6) because he might have caused “public harassment, alarm or distress”. The 53 year old man confirmed that he did not have anything to do with all these. The hearing is on 18th May.
