Pentax *ist DS2 review
Mar 3, 2008

Decent camera. Very good high ISO performance. Excellent small primes. Decent IQ.

Problems:

Horrible AF speed.

Also had camera for 3 months and it died. The problem was covered under warranty. Pentax took 5 months to fix it (yes that's not a typo). Remember this camera was only 3 months old. AVOID PENTAX AT ALL COSTS! A company that so poorly supports their products like this doesn't deserve anyone's money.

Their absence of zero currently available long telephotos over 200mm is unacceptable.
