5653802HiddenBought new - I wanted a digital SLR which would be able to use all my K-mount Pentax lenses and which I could afford. I found it consumed batteries like tic-tacs and was very fussy about which ones it would accept (I use Duracell now). I rapidly went to an Optio A30 because I could slip it in my pocket, but...

I've recently come back to the *istDL having "upgraded" to HDR, I now use it in exclusively bracketed exposure (+-2), RAW mode and it's wonderful - better than my partner's Lumix G2 (even though that gives 7 me auto bracket shots).

2093753HiddenBlack. My first DSLR experience - and I haven't looked back since. It has its peculiarities: Mine won't accept neither alkaline- nor lithium AA cells but I am still fond of it and keep it for "special applications" and as a backup.Denmark

2052768HiddenBlack version purchased new. First (and so far only) DSLR. Purchased almost exactly one year after my first/last AF 35mm SLR. Still in regular use, though I will upgrade once we figure out what's going on with the Ricoh takeover. Camera is still in near pristine condition, except for a few tiny scratches on the LCD screen. Just had first complete sensor cleaning a few weeks ago.Dodd Camera; Cleveland, Ohio
