I'd be intersted to know how the Pentax *ist would work out for sports photography, using an F1.4 lens for low light situations.

I've heard the noise management isn't as good on the *ist DS in comparison to the 20D??

Anyone have examples to post?

I haven't taken fast sport photos with the old f1.4 lens I picked up, but I have some other photos taken with that lens (it's an old Revuenon 50mm f1.4 lens), here is an example

Well, here is one taken just yesterday with a 85mm 1.8 CMC lens at ISO800. I tried a 50mm 1.4 before but it's just too wide so I had to crop a lot which doesn't look so good.

alvitdk, thats a cool shot.

What was your f-stop for that picture.

For some reason, the exif data shows F-zero (now that's a fast lens!)
