Pentax *ist DL review

I Purchased this camera in early 2009 as a do it all camera for Portrait and outdoors. The IST DL came out in 2005 and any pro would know in that year the mega pix were lower then they are today with most boosting over 10.1 MP.

I do not recommend this IST DL for studio portraits if you plan on croping because of large prints. This camera in not a disapointment. It is very sturdy, great solid construction and definetly pro grade and looks like its becoming ICON for a collector like myself.

Like other older models from four years ago that are becoming a collector, the IST D, DL, DL2, DS and the DS2 are already a collector to The DSLR Lover. Other makes and models I can not mention on this page.


No Problems for my Use, MP only complaint but I already knew what I was getting into before purchase.
