Samsung's rumored GX-1S DSLR has at last made its debut, and -- as expected -- it's a relabeled version of Pentax's *ist DS2. Not that there's anything wrong with that, since the specs include a 6.1 megapixel imager, ISO levels up to 3200, 2.8 fps burst mode, 2.5-inch LCD and an 18-55 Schneider D-XENON lens (of course, it's compatible with other Pentax lenses). No word on pricing yet, though the *ist DS2 goes for about $650, so we suspect a similar price in markets where this becomes available (which may not include the US, depending on Samsung's agreement with Pentax).
