Pentax *ist D series: 2003-2006:

First step into the digital world: EL 2000:

Pentax was a slow starter in the field of Digital SLR. While Kodak started their work in the early 70s and Nikon first, then Canon, cooperated with Kodak in developing cameras through the nineties, Pentax seemed to lack the know how. They released a SLR-like camera in cooperation with Hewlet Packard, the EL 2000, in 2001 as a step towards a full DSLR.  
The EL 2000 of 2001, developed together with Hewlett Packard and sold in both brand names.

2003: *ist D:

 So, in 2003 Pentax was ready to launch their first full digital DSLR: the *ist D. 
The *ist D of 2003 had a CCD sensor of 6,1 MB. It was regarded as a very well built camera with superb ergonomics. Size: 129x94,5x60. Weight: 550 grams. Sn: 5773952.

A standard kit zoom 18/55.

Following the path of the last film cameras, although not the tilted top of the MX-S.

LCD panel of 1,8 inches and 18.ooo pxls.

Later models:

2004: *ist DS

Hi,
Thank you! You are right, and I have corrected the chapter of Rolleiflex.
However, the first Voigtländer VSL-1, under Rollei control, had M42 mount.

Hi. The Rolleiflex 35 models did not use M42 but the QBM mount, which is identical to the Voigtländer bayonet.

Hi,
You are right, and I have described it as such in the chapter about Voigtländer.
(1959-1969). But it came out wrong here, and will be corrected. Thanks!

The Bessamatic had interchangeable lenses (think Zoomar, the first 35mm camera zoomlens). Nice site, keep it up
