    No, I was there Friday and the accident happened Sunday. In the first picture you can see the yellow trailer at the end of the track, that's where she was killed and also where I was with my wife and son most of the time. The second pic is the car that lost the tire on Sunday.

    The face on ones like above are all 70-200VR. It's the first time I've actually carried it on the bike so I wanted to see how well the focussing worked and picked a slight corner and the end of a downhill straight. The bikes were coming down at I guess somewhere between 80kph (the speed limit) and, lets say faster then turning slightly right for the corner.
    Bright light, no clouds around 35C and about 2pm.
    The first shot was ruined by super bright headlights on a Honda. The auto metering screwed up big time so I went to M, iso 400, f5, 1/800, 175mm then tracked the bikes as they came towards me (kneeling about 1.5 metres beside the road, portrait mode) and as they lent into the corner click. Simple really and shit that 70-200 can focus fast. It's pro lenses for me from now one simply for the focus speed improvements.
    I ran into the same thing taking tennis pictures with the 70-200. It's f***ing marvelous at focusing but I had to use manual exposure mode because the metering was fluctuating too much even with ev @ -7.

    Took this for a for sale thread on a local forum. This was manually focused on my D5000 with the standard 18-55 kit lens. I liked the way it came out.

    100 points to whoever can guess what this is.

    Hmmm,

    Two threads of probably four. Looks to be similar to an old pipe flange or possibly the top of a cylinder head? FP or FJ? I'm not sure about the emblem. Definitely has my curiosity though...
