Digital *ist Review on PopPhoto

Popular Photography Magazine has their review of the Pentax Digital *ist available for download. Basically they love it. I was a bit surprised reading the specs over at dpreview that it’s lowest ISO is 200, but the pictures come out quite nice, so I guess it’s not that big a deal.


Quick and dirty pros and cons from the article are: Pros: small and light with good image quality up to ISO 400 and low noise up to ISO 800. Cons: Slow autofocus in lower light, pricey, and the lens eliminates the ultrawide field of view. Having actually held this camera in the store I can say it feels fantastic in my hot and sweaty little hands.


Yea, so if anyone has a couple of thousand dollars hanging around and looking for a good home, that’d be great…..
