I don't think the Pentax cameras are bad at sports photography but
possibly thelens choices come into play. I don't have anything with an
SDM type focus motor other than my Sigma 17-70 which focuses quite
fast, my consumer lenses, the DA F 50-200 and 55-300 being screw focus
tend to focus slower and hunt, me thinks that could be the concern.??
Nice shots BTW
