It is a pretty thin review but it is the first one I have seen:

No realtesting how the SR performs though.

I have mine for a week now and I am delighted (no prior Pentax SLR).

Kind of related: is there anyway to display the focal length in the viewfinder/LCD?
Obviously, this will make sense with zooms.

I want to use the kit lens at 24, 28, 35, 40, 43 and 50mm to get a real life sense of angle of view for some primes I might "need" (I got a SMC-M 50mm/F2 already).

Thanks

I don't know about the K100, but the *istDS doesn't display this.

Could be useful though.

You are right but it will be nice to have it real-time as you zoom-in and out.

No big deal: the list with improvements is long enough already:-)

Bottom line:features are in large part directly proportional to the DSLR price, like it or not. Each feature costs $XX. So, like it or not, that ithis is a fact of life.

Surely you can just zoom as far as you need to take the picture, then check the lens barrel.

Personally, I find the DL2 has enough info in the viewfinder without a zoom length.
