Check out the K200d product overview

http://www.youtube.com/v/-74vSaL_YY0&rel=1

The K200d is positioned as slimmed down k10d with more point and shoot modes that will appeal to novice DSRL users.

At 3:12 in the video, "enhanced dynamic range option" is mentioned. Does this mean reduced noise at higher ISO compared to the k10d?

I need a compact DSLR with 10+ megapixel, and low noise at high ISO.

Seems like I'll have to use my k100d until the price of the k20d drops - maybe the fall of 2008 , and use a larger body than I'd prefer.
If you keep your K100D half a year longer till spring 2009 you probably get the K20D sensor in the K300D. Perhaps you'll even get a new AF system, a decent buffer and a pentaprism with it.

The EDR will not give you lower noise. Quite the opposite actually. The trade off is increased dynamic range at the price of more noise.

I think he wanted to say that if they can afford EDR then perhaps they've improved noise performance. He didn't deny more noise in EDR images.
I'm also curious how K200D performs.
