Pentax *ist DS2 review

After seeing NOTHING but Canon and Nikon all over the place I decided to go back to my old trusted Pentax SLR and see if the older lenses can be used in this new DSLR - I was happy to see that I can. So as a cost saver and trusted name I went with PENTAX and I am so glad I did.

Problems:

I can't say anything on the down side to this camera - it is a good all around DSLR - it (was) a resonable price and the quality overall is excellent. All my older lenses work (non-auto) and I get great shots consistantly. I would reccomend this camera but if you can afford the few hundred dollars more - get the PENTAX K10D!!!! I think Pentax got it right with the K10D. overall - GREAT CAMERA
