Check out the link below. K100D has arrived here up north. $749C for the body as opposed to $899 for the DS2. With kit lens, $100 more. Might go check it out and see how the stableization system works, and if there's much difference in features etc. Wouldn't mind seeingthedifferentviewfinder too. I could really use the stableization for wildlife shooting........Don.

Already saving for my next body (always nice to have a backup, always had one with 35mm) I have a DL, but I have used a DS. The DS2 offers some high end features such as a real pentaprism (BTW, my DL has a viewfinder image that is almost as large, and possibly brighter than the DS in spite of the pentamirror)and a larger continuous shooting buffer (and possibly TTL flash) but neither of these features is all that important to me so I would go with the K100D and image stabilixation.

I know that many are waiting for a higher res model but I would need to spend money on a new computer if I go beyond the current 6MP model (it is slow as it is). I don't need the higher res enough to warrant that expense.
