Pentax *ist DS review

One of my relatives bought this body for under 400$ (from the NY retail store of to bring it home to Hungary. As a european I could only dream about this price because of the higher european taxes without my relative's journey. Metal body with pentaprism viewfinder. Good build quality. I bought a Tamron 28-75/2.8 lens, but used auto lenses of the old Chinon film camera too. (Fantastic compatibility, light metering, focus feedback with manual focus lenses! I used aperture priority with the manual focus lenses.) It works with inexpensive TTL flashes.


No ISO, WB, RAW button, have to use menu instead.
