This is a great camera at a great price. It is the Pentax IST digital SLR for £254.98 delivered from Empire Direct. It comes with the lens kit at this price. Many other stores sell it for quite a bit more, without the lens kit included. E.g. It's £440 on pixmania for the body only. I don't know a lot about digital SLRs, so opinions on this product are greatly welcomed

NOTE: the spec shown on the Empire Direct web page is probably wrong, here is the true one from the Pentax web site, thanks to Kommunist.

Details: * 6.0 million pixel CCD * Penta-mirror for clearer viewing * RAW and JPEG file formatsSingle, continuous or manual focusing * Picture modes, plus shutter and aperture priority modes * Auto Picture Mode * Easy to use with clear layout and controls * Compatible with Pentax lenses * Small and light digital SLR * 2.5" LCD playback screen * USB 2.0 image file transfer *

Wow! What a price! Thanks Emma.

Great spot Emma...
I suspect this is a bit of a mix up, becuase the Pentax *ist DL is only 6 MP, not 10.

It says 6mp in the description on Empire Direct, then the 10.1 MegapixelCMOS sensor - that's reffering to something else in the spec I think? I'll add 6mp to my title to make sure there's no confusion.

This is over £440 for the body only on ]pixmania!

very good price. but I just bought a pentax K110D for 250 pounds. otherwise this is a very good choice. thanks.

I suspect they're clearing stock of these old models now that the (superior?) K100D and K10D models are out.
Still a stunning price for the kit though, just wish I wasn't as poor as a church mouse after Christmas :x

Emma,

The spec on their website is for ]Canon 400D and it would be a bargain of the year to get 400D at this price.
The spec for Pentax *ist DL is ]here

Oh I see! They have made a bit of a muck up there. I'll take that spec out of my description then, which I copied and pasted from Empire Direct.

Pentax DL are similar to the K100d except the shake reduction system. if you are currently using pentax manual lenses, DL is a very good choice for u. SR system only supports DA and FA lenses.

Thanks marquis.
Are you saying that the K100D and K10D wouldn't be able to use my KA manual lenses?

If you wanted bargain of the centuary you could bag this zoom lense...

Good luck finding one in stock though

All out of stock.:-(

I think the lens kit cannon 350d is a particularly good deal, of course it was a highly rated camera at its time. ]http//ww…0d/

the cannon 350d has disappeared but the pentax ist DL is still available

Just going to order the Ist DL to be informed that my postcode is somehow classed as in the Scottish Highlands and will incur an extra charge for delivery.
All fine and well if I did live in the highlands, but Fife isnt! cheeky swines!

Empire never have these available - they'll cancel all over again...

Phoned them - they have no stock.
