Pentax announces digital SLR camera *ist DL2, which is a slightly modified version of the *ist DL. Of far greater interest than the actual change, barely noticeable “to the naked eye”, caused by the plans promote the new model in the markets of Asia and Canada. Linking this fact with the recent launch of the Samsung GX-1S, similar in performance to the Pentax *ist DL2, we can assume that the signed cooperation agreement, the company agreed to sell the same FCC under the Pentax brand in some

markets and under the brand Samsung in others (namely Europe and the United States).

Compared with the previous model *ist DL2 the main change was the five-point AF system (instead of three-point) and the addition of a number of preset scene modes that should highlight the orientation for beginning photographers. Externally, the new CTF repeats *ist DL, differing from the pure black of the case the last a small amount of detail colour silver.
