- Three level 'soft' digital filter
- Continuous shooting buffer reduced to 5 / 3 images (JPEG / RAW)
- Penta-mirror viewfinder instead of Penta-prism, 0.82x magnification
- Natural-Bright-Matte II focusing screen
- Larger 2.5" LCD monitor
- Removal of high speed sync flash
- Two new languages: Swedish, Dutch
- Slightly lighter (575g vs. 605g)

The *ist DL features a 2.5 inch LCD monitor and the lightest PENTAX digital SLR body at only 16.6 ounces.

Featuring 6.1 effective megapixels and compatibility with most interchangeable PENTAX lenses, the *ist DL will ship in July 2005 with the smc PENTAX DA 18-55mm digital lens for under $800 US.
