The K200D is a great camera. It brought me into the world of DSLR photography. It has logical controls and most importantly, fits my hand. I also now have a K5iis, but use them both. I see them on ebay now and then.

The K200 was a great camera, no doubt.
One of the main reasons I upgraded to the K5 was the superior high ISO perormance.
But looking at some older files the K200 did quite well also ...

K200 with M2/85 @ISO1250

I just got my K200D a couple of weeks ago. It's my first dslr and I really like it so far.

I don't miss my K200D : I use still use it. For 5 years and a half and nearly 20000 shots, it's still a good choice. I bought it in the first place for the budget and the fact I could use the lenses of my MZ-50. I never had a regret.

These are samples of what I was able to do without a tripod, first one with a Sigma 70-300mm f4-5 6 dg macro, second with the excellent Pentax DA 18-55 which was sold with the camera.

Very nice.....I'm hoping that mine will like MotoGP and the local dirt track late model modifieds. It might make it to a boat race or two as well.

Racing takes a bit of practice panning etc. Don't get discouraged. When panning don't stop after releasing the shutter. finish the follow through. SR (Shake Reduction) Doesn't always play well with panning and can blur you pics. I've also found with my DA-L 55-300mm zoom which is my workhorse at the races if I pickup the car or boat way ahead of where I want the shot then follow them it'll retain the focus lock using AF.c (Continuous Auto Focus). I also select my focus point instead of letting the camera pick it. As you can see it work well for IndyCars also. Even in the rain!

Love the panning shots! Thanks for mentioning about the SR during panning. Makes so much sense.
