The fact that the *istDS digital SLR is now available in silver is not really a story in itself. But we didn’t give the original non-silver one a mention when it was released, so it seems only right to rectify that omission now. Pentax tells us that its istDS is the market’s smallest and lightest digital SLR and we have no reason to doubt them. The silver version is identical to the original specs-wise, offering 6.1 megapixels and full compatibility with all Pentax’s various lenses – old and new. The *istDS Silver is out in April with a guide price of £699.99 (with 18-55mm DA Lens), making it a pretty affordable SLR on the whole.
