Didn't I tell you? Forget the negative comments, it can still hold it's own. The fact that, with a K7 and K10 also, my *istD still gets it's share of work says it all

I bet it does. I still take a lot of my favorite shots with my k100d. Now I have a k7 and a kr. I am going to miss the 100d when I sell it.

I think what you give up with SR on the K100D and perhaps some creature comforts like the bigger screen you more than make up for with the functional features of the *istD and the dual mode TTL / P-TTL flash

When my wife thought she'd like to try photography, I bought her a used *ist D. My first exposure to Pentax DSLRs was when I bought my K10D, so I didn't realize what a serious camera the *ist D was. It feels every bit as rugged as my K10D...but in a more compact body. Even though it's only 6 megapixels, it takes great pics! Now, I'm looking to upgrade my wife so I can steal her *ist D to use as my "carry to work" camera.

My DSLR is an ist DS and I love it. It does take a while to write to the card and show you an image on the screen but it does take some great photos. I dont have any photo editing software so these are about as straight from the camera as it gets.

200 ISO:


1600 ISO (with a 20 second exposure). It is the dressing room of a disused 1850s era opera house. It was DARK.
