Hi all,For the last couple weeks I have been doing my dSLR research and I had pretty much decided on the *ist DL. Yesterday in doing some reading I saw the newer DL2. It seems to have some improvments such as more autofocus points, etc. Is this camera not on sale in states yet? I can't seem to find it anywhere. If not, do you all think it will be a lot more $$$ than the DL or will it be more of a replacement? Is it worth waiting for? Anyone know when it is coming?Thanks!ben

As far as I know, the DL2 is only officially available in Canada and Asia. Samsung have done some deal to produce a rebadged version of the DL2 called the GX-1S and GX-1L (DS2 and DL2 respectively I think).

http://www.samsungcamera.co.uk/produ...asp?cat_uid=62

They are identical in every way just with a different badge.

If you live in the UK, Jessops sell the DL2 (don't know how..) for about £450 with the 18-55 lense and a Sigma 55-200mm lense.

Hope this helps

Just a small correction - the DL2 is different from the DL.

DL2 has more focus points, you can change the DOF preview to an LCD preview

Sorry for my ignorance Darren but what point were you correcting me on? I don't think I had suggested said that they were the same. I know the DL2 is different with the extra focusing points, scene modes etc. I was just saying that Samsung make a rebadged version of the DS2 (Pentaprism GX-1S) and DL2 (Pentamirror GX-1L) for the European market.

Thanks
Dave

Sorry I mis-read your post. I thought you were saying the DL and DL2 were the same. On re-reading I see what you mean.

Lesson - read twice, post once.

Well, I have looked around...seems like the only way you can the DL2 in the states is to import one from canada. This raises the price quite a bit.*I'll probably just go ahead and go with the DL.*Thanks for the help guys.*
