I own a Pentax K200D Limited Edition with a silver body since 2009, with a original Pentax grip. I use this camera for personal and scientific imaging. This is a brilliant camera from day one as it has never let me down. I do use a Nikon D500 for scientific imaging, the only advantage D500 has over K200D is the tethering software which has a live view in the software. I use PK tether for K200D and it has work marvelously. I manage to take over around 1000 frame on Pentax with Sanyo Eneloop on tether (photo transfer to PC), but only 150 frame on D500 on Nikon lithium on tether (photo transfer to PC). K200D interface is very intuitive. K200D In spite of being 10 years old, I would not trade this camera for anything else today market has to offer.
Thank for letting me share my experience of owning a K200D

Welcome! I have the K110D, and the K-5. If you are the kind of user who doesn't want to spend a lot, there are newer 'old' cameras out there that do great, and only cost about $300 or so.
Tell us where you are. I'm in the midwest US. We have members all over the world.
