I still love it. There's a certain something about it that I really like. I know that if I had a K5IIs then I would love that too but there is that film like "feeling" that you get with the K200D that reminds me of my K1000. It's not great in low light but it's not bad. A K30 would walk all over it but I enjoy this little camera anyway. BTW, the middle photo in the church was hand held at ISO 1600.

Very nice pictures. Re. the middle picture inside the church: was any noise reduction software necessary? I am an occasional K200D user and see no cause to discard it.
Best wishes,

John5100 and mamethot, Fine aviation and motor car pictures. Given a little sun, really shows what the K200D and the photographers behind them can do. Sometimes where there is no sun, too.

chhayanat,

Thank you. That little camera still does okay. I use it for everything from family photos to professional concert shots. With enough light, it can do okay.

I just dusted off my old k200d bought new when it came out but is virtually unused, 7-800 clicks is all. as much as new technology is so appealing there's no need to replace it for a casual shooter like me. if anything new glass is probly the wiser choice, just in time for my 1 month in ireland followed by 2 months in sweden coming up in a few weeks eh?

The K200D is, for me, a fantastic camera. I've been spending way too much time recently learning about the great bodies that are out now and lusting after them, and not enough learning more about my trusty K200D, which I had really known little about. It is a great combination of attributes:
- excellent ergonomics and handling
- tough, solid
- basic, straight ahead camera
- battery grip if you need it
- excellent IQ, outrageous colors
- weather resistant (boy have I tested that out. . . )
- not so valuable I always worry about it

Yes, relative to new offerings it comes up short in some areas, but for a basic, quality and reliable traveling buddy it's hard to beat. I just got back from 10 days hiking and touring in Italy and it has come through again. I'm actually thinking about a back up. With the limited free time I have to spend on photography these days it's a great value and learning tool.

Well.......I had hoped to have a new batch of boat racing pictures but the Ohio River almost flooded last weekend in Madison, IN. So you'll just have to make do with the elusive "Bugem Pole" in Defiance, OH!
