*istD and M50mm f/1.7 for under $100
Posted By: KC0PET, 03-05-2016, 10:01 AM

This looks like a great DSLR starter setup for someone on a tight budget.

Pentax ist DL Digital SLR Camera and Pentax Manual 50mm F1 7 PK Lens | eBay

No shutter count is offered, but it seems like most sellers will oblige if asked.

It gets better when you realise the *istD will handle true TTL flash...

But the item for sale is the DL - the ebay listing states it.

Sorry I didn't post that accurately. Interesting to learn that that is when true TTL stopped (I have seen other threads about that). I had an Olympus OM-4 back in the day that was at least an early implementation of TTL and it was very handy and it worked well.
