got to agree with BK here. any dslrwill wipe out any point and shoot doing action.. i've got a fuji s7000 that is suppose to have one of the fastest EVFs around. there is NO P&S that can compete with any dslr for action shots. NONE
if you liked the Z1 for action , any dslr will out do it. ANY!
people were amazed at some of the action shots i got with the s7000 but it can't compare to any dslr. if you can shot action with the Z1, then you'll be happy with any dslr..
i can't believe i got thru this with out mentioning pentax , so i'll do it now..

PENTAX

Thanks guys. Those are the kind of answers I was hoping to hear. Like I said earlier, I don't expect it to perform like a $2000 camera. But as long as it's as good or better than my Minolta P&S, I'll be happy. That shot of the Greyhound is awesome.

I shoot ourdoor track with my DS and haven't had any problems. I've shot some volleyball indoors using my 50mm f1.4 lens--you have to shoot at ISO 800 most of the time, but I've had pretty good luck with it.

Hi folks. I'm new to the forums. Anyway...

Here is a link to an image, considered by many, to be the definitive baseball photograph...

http://wso.williams.edu/~jkossuth/cobb/conlon.htm

Most likely, the camera used didn't have much of a frame buffer! Good timing, a good eye and an understanding of the game have long been the most important elements.

Of course, if you are interested in taking a sequence of shots, with no one moment taking precedence over another, then a camera with a large buffer and fast AF would be a big help.
