[align=left]I have been researching the *ist DL since the price has come down, but in the process discovered the *ist DL2. It has more scene modes, 5 point autofocus vs 3 on the DL and a 2 tone color design. But it appears this was never available in the US. I can't find any reviews of it, even after much searching, just the press release from January of 06. Does anyone know more about this camera? Is it possible to obtain it anywhere?

This is my first post in this forum. Can't wait to get a Pentax. Not sure yet if I'm going with the DL or the K100D. But this DL2 looks pretty good. If this one could be found for as good a deal as the DL it might be the one.

The only Pentax DL2 cameras you will find in the USA are on ebay and they come from Japan equipped with a guarantee that is honored only in Japan. They are priced near or above the current market price of the DL. So, IMHO, they are not something that I am going to jump at right away.

The choice we have is: DL, DS, or K100D.

Does anyone know what happened to the DS2? It came out as a slight upgrade to the DS, and it appears that it was only on the market for a very short time. It looks like it has been replaced by the DL, but the DL (at least from what I have been able to discern) has a pentamirror rather than the DS2's pentprism viewfinder. Is there much difference between the two?
