Item Description

All about the Pentax *ist DS2

For those considering a used digital camera, why consider a DS2 instead of a K10D?

There are some great things about the DS2 that makes it unique compared to the K10D:

• You can shoot at ISO 1600 or ISO 3200 with no noticeable noise. 6MP is plenty of resolution to print 8 x 12 high res prints. The fact that you can shoot high ISO makes it a lot more flexible to use with multipurpose lenses like the 18-250 or 18-200 that have slower maximum apertures.

• You can shoot IR using the Hoya 72 IR filters. (The K10D is not IR sensitive)

• Smaller and lighter than the K10D, which may be a plus factor to someone that has smaller hands or is concerned about carrying around a larger heavier body like the K10D.

• You can use regular Alkaline AA batteries that are readily available anywhere if your rechargeable batteries die and you are camping/backpacking somewhere with no power for a few days.

• The benefit of the Katz Eye split image screen is that you can use all the vintage manual focus lenses that are much cheaper on the used market. The rules of thirds grid helps to keep horizons and verticals straight as well as help in composing shots based on the rule of thirds.

The body is in pristine condition, nothing dented, chipped, scratched or missing from it. Very clean. Camera body comes with the original accessories, box and manuals.

Accessories:
Two sets (of 2) NiMHD rechargeable batteries with two chargers.
Katz-Eye Focus Screen.

Bump! Mike is a great guy to deal with, good luck with the sale. If I didn't already have two bodies I would be all over this for the katz eye screen alone!
