Look, this camera is fantastic everyone has talked about it here so I really don't need to add more. I picked the *istDS over the *istDS2 because it was rated better by professional camera people. I will only say that I do not understand the editors...

Fantastic Photos and Professional Features

None worth mentioning

I've been a Pentax film SLR owner for 35 years. I've waited for the oppurtunity to use my old inventory of lenses with a camera of this quality. They work and I've had excellent results.

Compact, sharp pictures, Ease of use. Ability to use older SLR lenses is a major cost saving feature in today's marketplace

None that I saw

The DS proves that Pentax still make great cameras. It's now been superseded by the DS2, which has a bigger viewfinder and the same excellent 18-55mm kit lens. It's better than the Canon 350D kit lens anyway, and the camera is more solidly built too....

compact, well-built, made by Pentax

none to speak of

My first DSLR, I am very happy with it. I have captured some excellent photos and have no intention of upgrading just yet.

backward compatible lenses, not having to use special accessories

No on board memory; no rechargable batteries

I've had this camera about 2 years, my first digital, and I love it. It can focus easily and get decent pix in very low light without flash, much better at that than the Nikon D50. I also like the fast response. I don't like flash photos so I don't use...

Can focus and get decent pix in very low light; fast response

Flash is weak and uneven; slow lens
