The Pro815’s AF system is very slow, so taking action shots is difficult. By the time the camera has focused, the subject has moved out of shot.
At the wide end of the zoom range the lens does produce a little spherical distortion, but it is very minimal considering the range of the lens.
The 815’s larger-than-average CCD produces better dynamic range than most, enabling it to cope with high contrast shots like this one.
