Hello from Wichita!

Hello all

I just ordered a Pentax *ist-DL that is on its way. I'm coming from a cheap point and shoot, so I'm looking forward to the quality of images a DSLR can produce! (I've used my dad's D40x for a while and decided I needed one haha)

Congrats! That's a capable little SLR, and you'll certainly be able to capture some great images with it (all while being able to auto focus with more lenses than the D40x can). Please share some of your shots!

Oh, yeah, I forgot:
Software Downloads : Support & Service : PENTAX

There have been a few firmware updates for your camera, so you might want to download those. I don't think they do much more than to be able to use SDHC cards, but if you're traveling and shooting RAW files, that'll come in handy.
