Pentax *ist DS review
Sep 20, 2006

This is an excellent camera. I've had mine for 10 months now and it has performed flawlessly. It accepts ALL of my existing Pentax lenses, both auto focus and manual focus. My K and M series lenses will all work in Manual modes while my A and F series lenses will work in ALL modes. The camera handles excellently. Compared to the two more professional cameras from Pentax (*istD and K10D) some settings have to be accessed from the menus rather than by pressing a button or turning a dial. Kit lens in excellent, probably the best kit lens from ANY manufacturer.

An excellent and well recomended camera.

Problems:
