Velocity Racing Spain and the Circuito de Velocidad de Cartegena held their first Festival of Speed last weekend, the circuit has the only oval racing circuit in Spain . . . so far.

These are some of my images from that weekend, showing the cars involved in a Time Attack race using the whole of the 3.5Km long circuit.

The two red beasts are Formula 3 Ferrari's.

The first 4 images were taken with he DA* 60-250mm lens, the remainder with the Sigma 70-200mm EX DG OS HSM lens. All were taken with the K-5 II.

Is it just me or do the results with the Sigma look sharper than those with the 60-250?

Carl, the apparent sharpness, or not, is probably down to my panning skills rather than the lens and I may have forgotten to turn on SR after removing the Sigma.

Also, they look much sharper in Lightroom than they do here, I suspect the re-sizing has something to do with it.

The near static shots I took at the weekend with both lenses seem to be equally sharp.

Phew - was just about to rush out and replace the Sigma I virtually gave away
