Congrats Mr. Terry! I really liked your last post of the Bel Air (I think) coming out of the burnout box. That one was calendar ready.

Thanks Harry! When I got back into photography (after a long layoff) I never thought I would be doing what I'm doing. I have been a very lucky and fortunate person. One of my favorite sayings is," I've never been asked to sit on the Cubs bench, the White Sox bench, the Bulls, Bears or Blackhawks bench, but with the racing I'm right in the middle of the sport!" Its been a great ride. This season is going to be exciting!

That would make it easy! Here are a few shots from this past weekend. My DW had made resies to stay in the French Quarter at the Astor Crown Plaza. I ended up taking the K-5II along for the stay.

It's not a purse, it's called a satchel. Indiana Jones wears one.

Hey Mike, I really like the K-5. It's got the best feel (ergonomics) of any DSLR I have ever used. I also really like having IBIS like the Sony's have. I keep looking to see if SAR has any info on that new Nex 7n. I would love to pick one up to go along side the K-5II.

One thing I'm not used to is shooting all weekend on 1 battery. With the Nex, I would have to bring 3 batteries for a weekend of shooting. I also really like having a lcd on the top of the camera. I usually leave the rear lcd turned off.

I see rumors floating around on SAR but nothing solid yet.

Take a look on Amazon for a cheap back up battery. I cant believe you did all that Disney shooting with one battery lol

Thanks 2Tiggies, I really appreciate that!

Mike, I brought 2 batteries but only charged one every night. I can get about 700-900 shots depending on if I leave the lcd turned off.

Awesome pictures as always buddy

Im still wondering how everyone manages to set up shop in the middle of the street lol. Do they block off that street and allow only foot traffic?

Yeah Mike, on weekends they close off sections of the street for pedestrians and performers.

Are we at that much of a disadvantage as Pentax users?

I don't worry about lens ratings or numbers. I like to look at pictures to judge lenses. If those stupid numbers were so important, no one would shoot Leica's.

When I bought the K-5II, I ordered both the Sigma 30 f1.4 and Pentax 43 ltd. Both lenses are awesome but I kept the Sigma because it was $289 versus $489 for the Pentax. I will say I prefered the shots from the 43 but it's just not wide enough for my shooting.

DXO rated the Leica the worst FF sensor tested but to my eyes they produce the most magical looking photos. The same goes for the Leica and Pentax lenses, they may not be the most advanced or sharpest but they are magical.

When I use my Nex, I find that I like to use an old Rokkor 50 f1.4 or Helios 44-2 the most. Maybe I'm just crazy?
