Pentax *ist DL price drop

Pentax has dropped the list price for its *ist DL digital SLR camera kit from $800 to $600. The kit, which includes the 6-megapixel *ist DL camera and an 18mm-to-55mm zoom lens, is now one of the cheapest digital SLR packages available. It's even less expensive than the budget-priced Olympus Evolt E-300. This price drop gives amateur photographers a great chance to work with an SLR camera without spending an obscene amount of money.
