It's a DS actually, not a D. They had a D there for a while that I'd
looked at (For $250), but overall I just don't like the D as much as
the DS (I've owned both in the past, the D was my first DSLR and first
Pentax, I owned a DS briefly before getting my K10D), it's less
responsive despite the better control layout and certain things, like
the ISO setting method, are not well thought out. The DS also has a
nicer grip.
