    Taken at NorthStar raceways with my Pentax ist DL SLR with a Tamron 70-300 telephoto lens @ f8/90th sec. I got pretty good at panning the camera... the racer was going about 80 kilometers/hour and I was about 50 feet from the edge of the track.

    I still use this camera/lens. I like the fact it takes loose AA batteries so I don't have to worry about proprietorial batteries in the future. I like my Tamron lens too... it does not have the glass of a top of the line Canon telephoto lens but it is every light in weight and takes a decent picture. I can take 400 pictures at a race and feel no fatigue. Also it has a pseudo Macro(1:2) and I use the same lens for pictures of insects... a very versatile lens.

    @lynxear nice! There are a few of us on here who crossed over into the light. LOL I think I've got a K1000 somewhere in a drawer that I haven't used in ages. Have a ZX M that I use on occasion, a K30 that I use occasionally, and a K3II that is the primary for now. Have my heart set on the updated K1.

    @smoke665 Thanks.. at one time I used to do a lot of Go-kart racing pics... people liked them because of the effect of the blur.

    To show you how versatile that Tamron lens is in the pseudo-macro mode, here is a picture of a dragonfly eating some kind of other fly. When I showed it on an insect website there was some speculation as to what it was eating by the details of the wing :)

    Not bad for a hand held pic with the Tamron 70-300mm lens in macro mode. This is a hand held picture (insects often don't have the courtesy to pose long and this is a cropped photo . I have owned this lens for 15 years and still works well.
