On the build quality, I recently handled a K30 and was shocked at how flimsy it felt compared to my K200D. Even the K500 felt better than the K30. They don't make 'em like they used to...

It's OK, just as long as the lenses last a long time ...

I've had my K-50 for a week now and love it.
I'm enjoying all the extra features that my K200D doesn't have, but I suspect that, with the same lens and in good light, my K200D could take a landscape picture very close to the quality of the K-50. In most other situations I think the K-50 would triumph.
I was going to sell the K200D, but for the little I would get for it, I now think I'll keep it as an extra body.
