Pentax *ist DL review
I picked the Pentax istDL because I have owned Pentax equipment before and liked the quality. Additionally, it's one of the few SLR cameras that doesn't have a proprietary battery you have to use; since it uses AA batteries, I can get those anywhere if I've forgotten to charge the NiMH ones. Great quality, very solid. I wish Pentax had a few more lenses.
