Has anyone any idea when the new *istDS2 Camera is likely to be available in the shops?

According to the info I have seen on the forums it is not scheduled for release in Europe.

Don't let that put you off. Import it from America. Even with VAT and shipping it will probably be cheaper than buying here - if you could get it!

PS: I have twice imported from North America without problems, and at a considerable cost saving over UK prices.

PPS: Note that B&H are selling the D as well. It's a better camera in most respects (though this is reflected in the price!).

If I were in the market for a Pentax DSLR and lenses, I would be interested in this:

Some nice stuff there.

Go make yourself a good deal for a slightly used DS and a set of lenses I also saw available there. Then upgrade the firmware and the DS is a DS2 (except of the size of LCD screen).

Regarding George's B&H url, have Pentax come to thier sense's and restarted production of the D? and its listed near the original price, maybe trying to distinguish their consumer and prosumer brands prior to the release of the an upgraded D (Dn maybe).

It was me!

Thanks for pointing out the listing, McBrian.

Now I just need to convince myself that I really do need two 50mm f1.4 lenses...

Wow! Great deal

Steve, if you need someone to relieve you of an FA50mm/1.4, then drop me a private message

Matt,

I think it'll be my old faithful Super Tak that's on its way out, but I'll bear you in mind...
