Default Is the Pentax *ist an OK entry level DSLR?

<center><img src="http://a1672.g.akamai.net/7/1672/116/20090201/www.ritzcamera.com/graphics/products/5-00/541614400.jpg"></center><p>My 8 year old P&amp;S was stolen during a break-in earlier this month. I was looking for a replacment around the Ritz website when I saw this. It seems like a no brainer at $270.

I don't use it too much and when I do it's mostly just pictures of friends, on going projects, and stuff I'm selling online.

Thanks!<ul><li><a href="http://www.ritzcamera.com/product/CLR541614400.htm">Pentax *ist deal at Ritz Camera</a></li></ul>

Default Sounds like what you're saying you need is another P&S.

If you truly want something for snapshots, and you get this, you might find yourself using it even less because it's inconvenient to carry around. Then again, you might find it very interesting, and dip the big toe in the water?

Default I heard Casio is coming out with a new calculator watch with phone and 30mp camera, 10x zoom.

Seriously though, I agree with RKA. If you're going to get a DLSR, go with Canon or Nikon, in the chance you ever want to expand on this hobby. Look for used ones on Craigslist.

Thx! You guys are probably right. Just ordered an SD1100 instead.
