Pentax ∗ist DL2 Digital SLR Review

Reader Score: 8.90 (out of 10)
Review: "The ∗ist DL2 is the very epitome of the entry-level DSLR, and that includes the price. It is available exclusively from Jessops (UK), so there are no dubious online discount deals available, but even so it is priced at an incredibly competitive £349 including a high quality 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Pentax DA lens.

It also gives you access to a vast range of Pentax lenses and accessories." ...
