...The DS2 also has an addtional "continous" AF too from what I've read.
Yes, the AF-C mode. I think the "pro" models (*ist D, K10D, K20D) all have a dedicated switch for this, and the other models use the menu to select it. It is available on the *ist DS if you upgrade the firmware. In fact, the last firmware gives the DS all the DS2 features except the 2.5" LCD screen. There are more DS models around; DS2 are rare. All the early Pentax digitals were sold in low numbers compared to today's models.

The prices for older Pentax models sort of hit a floor around $200, then depend on condition and extras. Check the firmware on anything you buy.

This is actually a good thing to know!
Now, all I've got to do is find me a "rare" DS2!
I hope somebody's willing to give up one!

Thanks Just1MoreDave!
