Blotches on images especially images with a light background eg.

This is probably due to dust or other foreign matter on the CCD. Look at the Pentax *ist DL manual under "CCD cleaning" or "sensor cleaning" for instructions.

There is a "sensor cleaning" mode in the Set-up menu that will lock the mirror up so you can inspect/clean the CCD sensor.

The problem is with waking a sleeping Pentax ist dl: touching the shutter button doesn't reawaken it. To enable the ist dl to shoot requires turning off the camera and of course switching it on again.

This is a common problem with all the ist's. Try cleaning the battery contacts inside the camera with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Can't see symbols in viewfinder of a Pentax ist dl.They are completely blurry and unreadable

There's a diopter adjustment lever just above the viewfinder. Adjust it while peering through the viewfinder. This may be easier if you remove the rubber eyecup.

For further details see the "Adjusting the Viewfinder Diopter" section on page 39 of the manual.

Using a 500mm fixed aperture lens on a Pentax ist

Use "exposure compensation" (the button with a plus/minus symbol). It allows you to lighten (toward the + side) or darken (toward the - side).

Flash on ist DL

Looks like its true... Another major disadvantage. Removing TTL means removing one more hardware piece - TTL sensor. Pentax removed almost every nice feature, which needs some aditional or more expensive hardware: no TTL flash, less AF points, pentamirror... Seems like I bought Ds right in time.

Can *ist DL do High-Speed/Wireless Flash?

According to the manual (page 153), the DL DOES support P-TTL flash, with the built-in or external flash, but only supports high-speed flash with an external flash. What I'm wondering is, what is high-speed sync flash useful for? The only thing I can think of is fill-flash outdoors.
