*ist DL

*ist DL

General Description

The *ist DL is a cheaper variant of the *ist DS. The cost was reduced by replacing the pentaprism viewfinder by a pentamirror one, by dropping the ability for TTL-flash metering with older (analogue) flash units, and by reducing the number of AF sensors from 11 down to 3.
