Just ordered my first DSLR, the K200D

Greetings from Vancouver, Canada! I just took my first plunge into dslr photography by ordering myself a K200D. Up to now, i've been using my trusty Pentax Optio M10 point&shoot and i've been really happy with the quality of that camera.



I've just ordered the K200D two nights ago, and I can't wait to get my hands on it and learn more about dslr photography! Looks like there is a fun community here too.

Just Ordered Mine Yesterday Too

I only had my k100d for ten days and already decided it's time for the newest model. LOL, The money I get on Ebay (where I got it from and selling it again) will help pay for the k200d, I still haven't heard if the top panel LCD has a backlight like the K10. I loved the k100d a lot but was swayed to the raw mode switch on the side of the camera, sensor cleaning and of course the four extra megapixels. (love lots of detail) Hope we can compare shots.

Hi Barry, I too am sway by the level of technology in Pentax DSLR's, especially the new models, and I think they are great value for money! I'm not sure if the top LCD has backlighting either, it didnt say in the pentax website. But considering most other cameras in the range doesnt even offer the 2nd lcd display, i'm happy that ours will!

hi, welcome also, I'm new to the board too

about how much do the k100d's sell for on ebay?

I know that as soon as i buy something it will be superseeded, but it was a bit disappointing to by the k100d and then find out that the k200d is out
and it's usually best to sell tech 2nd hand before it gets too out of date

Tough Question

I bought my k100d off Ebay for $525 that looks brand new, the seller also included three lenses, a tripod, a 2GB card,a big camera bag and 4 AA rechargable batteries with a charger. I'm started selling mine (body only) at a opening bid of $100, with eight days to go, it's now at $152 and expect it to go much higher, at least enough end up getting the k200d for as little as $150 when you consider the profit I made reselling the extra lenses he included when he sold the "package" to me. I'm happy
