Pentax *ist DL2 Digital SLR - Test Shots - Exposure Evaluation

/94/1633bf/7bd6/3129-Pentax-DL2-boats.jpg
With a good telephoto lens the DL2 becomes a good long-range spotting camera, and is light enough to carry anywhere. This was taken using a 300mm lens.

The 18-55mm lens supplied with the kit is roughly equivalent to 28-70mm on a film camera. The telephoto end is a bit short, but the lens is exceptionally sharp and detailed.
----

The 28mm end is wider than most compacts, and is great for big panorama shots. Even at its widest setting it provides excellent edge-to-edge sharpness.
----

With no selectable focus point, close-up photography can be a bit hit-or-miss. It took five tries to get this, and it’s still not perfect.
