Hi Rogelio, and welcome to the forums

Are you looking for a replacement with same sensor size - ie. APS-C? If so, what is your budget? There are many good choices, new and used, in Pentax APS-C cameras. Alternatively, if full-frame is what you're after, you joined at just the right time with the release of the K-1

Welcome to the forum, good to have you here. I'm pretty sure you would not be disappointed in becoming part of the Pentax Family, just choose the camera which most suits your needs.

Welcome! You'll find that we're all a friendly bunch around here, and more than happy to help you spend your money

Depending on your budget, the K-S2, K-3ii, or K-1. They're all pretty awesome, and a big step up from the D200!

Welcome aboard.

I have been to Fort Benning twice. Once to see one of my son's Turning Blue Ceremony and a few weeks later for his graduation from basic training. I have also been to San Antonio twice to see two sons graduate from Air Force basic training at Lackland AFB. Loved the River Walk. It really lives up to it's hype and is a great place to take photographs. The Alamo was in some ways of a letdown. I think mainly because it is now a lovely memorial park and museum surrounded by the city and not the lonely abandoned mission it was during the battle.

Welcome to the clubhouse!
Remember the Marketplace here is a great place for bargains on used gear. It's likely to have been taken care of, too.
