I am presently shopping around for a DSLR and due to its small size I am extremely interested in the Pentax *ist DS. The gear I am looking at getting includes:

Pentax *ist DS (body only) DSLR

Sigma 18-125mm f3.5-5.6 AF Lens

Lexar 1GB SD (32x) Media

Pentax AF360FGZ External Flash

To all Pentax *ist DS owners, Are you satisfied with your DSLR? Any experience with the Sigma lens?

That's exactly what I ordered! Minus the flash.
I will get it tomorrow, so I'll post comments later.

Is anyone ever satisfied ?

I would like to have a full frame sensor, wider ASA range, brighter viewfinder, more powerful flash, more resolution, a longer zoomand the Pentax software is a waste of a good CD.

On the other hand the camera will use any lense I have thown at it (from a old Kmount SMC 500mm to a new Tamrom Super zoom). The CVR3 batteries last forever and the build quality is excellent. The picture quality is more limited by the photoghrapher than the camera (at least in my case).

I have had it about a year now and have not seen anything to come to market that I would rather have.



Cheers,



Lewis

LewTwo,

Not sure how you could "have it a year now" since the camera was released only in November 2004. The discussion is about the *ist DS, not the *ist D.

(different cameras)
