Pentax *ist DS review

I have had this camera since march and love it, I actually had a canon rebel ti and switched systems. The image quality is good (great in raw), build quality is better than anything in its price range (nikon d50 comes close though), reat viewfinder, easy to find cheap good lenses, and the small size makes it easy to carry around. I also love the dof preview. The pentax -samsung partnership will bring more k mount lenses in the future.

Problems:

I wish it had more anolg controls and that the performance was closer to the 20d (wich costs double)
