New K200d user - thank god for the top-panel LCD

Just finished my first roll of photos with my new (to me) K200D - a fine photographic tool which, so far, more than lives up to my (relatively high) expectations of it. One point in particular which is turning out to be much more useful than I suspected: the LCD panel on top of the camera. Shooting in extremely bright sunlight, moving my eye back and forth between reality and the viewfinder, it's occasionally hard to check some of the settings (aperture in particular) from within the viewfinder. But being able to quickly look at the LCD top panel and see them there, clearly - is a boon.

Great camera so far.

Here's one of my first images, almost completely unprocessed - a cityscape with some ancient and modern pictographs side by side.

It's a great tool. That's why I just picked up my second body.

K200D is simply a great camera ... and I was glad I started with it ... just raises the bar for future upgrades though given the feature set it has ... hope you have a lot of fun with it !
