Pentax *ist DL2 review
As a first DSLR this is an excellent choice. I spent time testing and handling various cameras and the DL2 had a really robust feeling.
Acceptable results can be achieved with programme scene or automatic settings.
The kit lens seems relatively good and there are plenty of pentax compatible lenses on ebay. Pentax seem to be staking a decent claim in the DSLR market with more advanced K100 and K10 models in the pipeline.
With this model having a price advantage over other makes - particularly in the UK - it was an obvious choice.
No problems - though RAW file sizes are large enough to mean that a decent size and speed of SD card is essential. Built in flash seems harsh at default setting.
