Pentax *ist D review

Have had this camera for about 5 months and have had heaps of fun. I have taken about 5000 plus shots. Most shots have been action shots, sports. I am using old manual focus lenes F4 300mm and a F2.8 135mm. Because the ist doesn't match these lenes properly I have had to bend the aperature arm on the lenes. The end result is the aperature is completely manual.

Problems:

Same complaint as everybody. The CF door and removing the CF card from the camera. The more I have used the camera the easier the card comes out.
I have had the camera completely lock up on me. The only thing that would get it to work again was to remove the batteries then put them back in.
