Pentax *ist DS2 review
Aug 6, 2006

Was looking at the Nikon D-50 but was swayed by user response to the Pentax. The view finder and low light shooting were the deal maker. Have over a 1000 shots in the can and very happy with the purchase. I went super cheap on lenses getting a 2.8-4.3 28-70 Tokina and a
2.8 100-300 Vivitar for the ist DS2. These are fast lenses and work great with the ist. I've taken many extreme low-light shots with the success I was hoping for.

Problems:

My wish is for a PEF conversion in CS2 then I'd be in RAW heaven. Pentax is dropping the ball on a CS2 conversion for it's long line.
