Nice captures! Can't guess which camera lens combination was used for which shot though . Anyone?

Ref the "Walk of Shame", today's Motor Sport News (MSN) included comments from various competitors that the "carnage" at the start of the first BTCC round on Saturday was due in large part to the rolling start which meant that many cars were running relatively quickly at the Start line in damp conditions on a relatively narrow track (Oulton is like that from what I read) - and that rolling starts on such narrow tracks when it is damp/raining should now cease. So don't entirely blame that driver!
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body) , & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

An easy way to find out is to install Mozilla Firefox as a extra browser and use that. Go to add-on`s and search for FxIF and integrate it into the browser, then any picture you right click on will bring up a menu with FxIF data showing on it. Click on that and all picture information for that photo will be shown in a pop up box (providing the info has been included). Info also includes shutter speeds, aperture, camera used, focal length, date, whether flash was used and a bit more too. Its very helpful as use to a guide as to how pictures were taken.

According to the info shown using FxIF data, all taken with the 50-135 except for numbers 8,12 & 14 that were taken with 150-450. Hope that is of help

Martin, thank you for taking time to elaborate on obtaining equipment data directly from a browser.

What I really meant was I couldn't correctly guess the equipment used to take these pictures just by looking at them. I appreciate both "K5iis & DA*50+-135" and " K1 & DFA 150-450" have the capability to produce outstanding images. However, considering the cost aspect of the latter, I could not distinguish the images with my amateurish eyes. Probably I can tell them apart if I were to view these pictures at their full resolution on a 4k monitor? I know this is about APS-C vs full-frame, but I couldn't resist thinking aloud on this having looked at these images.

Cheers.
