Try this link: Customer Support - Official PENTAX Imaging Web Site. I am using an 8 gigabyte SDHC in my *ist DL have not experienced any problems. I did have to update the cardreader connected to my PC.

Agreed! I just bought a new *ist DL kit and that was the first thing I did.

Firmware upgrades on my DL were very easy, and had no issues!

I am very thankful for Pentax's ongoing support of the DL.

My Dad's Nikon D50 (which is very comparable to the DL) was abandoned by Nikon, and has never seen a firmware upgrade for SDHC

I upgrade the firmware on my DL twice while I had it. Never used any SDHC cards but that was one reason I did the upgrades. Oh well, now my sister can test that out.

Same here - I'm now using 4GB SDHC cards with no problems in the *ist DL....
