What is meant by "*ist" ? helohe (talk) 23:23, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

That's the rather weird name of the line of cameras. Apparantly it's a marketing thing, saying you can be anything you want, by putting that before the "ist". ie: Artist, Journalist, Photographist (even though the last one's not a real word, but you get the point).--Raguleader 06:06, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

Is it really relevant to the DS that they got into the market late? It wasn't their first DSLR, that was the *ist D.--Etoastw 07:24, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
