I don't miss mine because I've still got it. I haven't used it for some time because the K5 is just so good and so easy to use. But I remember just how good the low ISO colours look and I keep planning to use it again. I haven't used it with my FA77 ltd yet, but it has to be done soon.

Nice photos and I love the hydros. They are huge here in Seattle and Seafair is coming up in August. Not sure if you are aware but the Hydro Museum is not too far from here.

John, Been there, done that!



I've got a lot of Facebook friends out your way too. I think it's a prerequisite for having OCHD! (Obsessive Compulsive Hydroplane Disorder)

This is why I'll never sell the K200D. Shooting Slash on Friday night was pretty cool with my KX and K200D

It's amazing what a K200D will do if your willing to try.

Here are some of my before and after crops from the Madison Regatta. The last on is a pretty tight crop off the Raw file. I wouldn't want to go too much further.

Hey Guys, any k200d love out there? I still use mine every week. Use my KX for travel and low light but I use my k200d for everything else. Seems like the k30 has taken the reigns now.

I took 2 bodies with me to Haiti last month, K-5 and K200d. I picked the K200d for this trip over myK20d and *istD.

Good to see the other K200Ds are still going. The big disappointment with the K30 is that there is no option for a battery grip, that rules it out in my book.
I totally agree with this

K200D's still going strong

Blue and Jan, I don't what it is but the K200D just hits some sort of sweet spot. It just works. Glad to see that you still using yours.
