Pentax *ist DL - Page 2

post #11 of 18
It's not going to be a cheap fix that's for sure. Though for what it probably costs to repair you could buy another *ist DL for like ~$200.

I'd imagine you could also find a K-x for just a bit more on top of that. I'm not a Pentax user, but I'd imagine that the lenses the OP has now can also be used on the K-x.

Yeah they can. Pentax has some underrated stuff and so many older lenses it's ridiculous. Not all of them are great, but they're cheap.

Though a used K-x is about $375-$450. They were cheaper, but the prices on DSLRs in general have risen.

That's how it is with Canon's lenses and bodies too. Bad time to be a buyer

Nikon as well. My friend was going to buy a 105mm f2.8 for $775 at one point. He was waiting on his income tax return, but once it came it had risen to $900. A bit after the Japanese tsunami and earthquake. Now it's almost $1,000.

Canon 5D Mark II went from $2499 to $2699 recently.

I should have invested all my money into 35 1.8s and now I would be able to sell them for 40% profit.

Had a K20D for a while and it's a great camera. Sorry your *ist died.

In case you're looking to replace, check here for used / warrantied pentax bodies. Some good deals (and KEH is a great place)

k10D for $365 / KM's for $275.
