I agree with john5100, K200D autofocus could be better, especially with large aperture lenses.

Simen1 - where the K200D falls down is low light auto focus. I have missed some shots for that.
Yes, this is a much more significant failing of the K200D than simple high ISO capability.

The Residency at dusk. Lucknow, India.

Nice pictures John Rudolph and Milkman. K200D works very well if you know its limitations. An old picture is attached. I used the the K200D yesterday with a CZJ Flektogon 35/2.4. Except that one couldn't set Manual White Balance it did very well in all daylight shooting.

Superb images, Nos. 714-717. Some of them are quite astonishing for their colour depth, sharpness and vibrance. Has someone written about the reason why the K200D is able to achieve such images? Of course there is the photographer's skill and the light, but this often underrated camera can still take very good pictures.
Best wishes,

Richard has great PP skills.

But you have to also give some credit to the K200D's CCD sensor. Check out the K10D Club, where we have discussed this ad nauseum

Count me with the CCD fanatics, I have a K10D which has the same sensor as the K200D (and the K2000/K-m also has that same sensor). The older *ist and K100 families of cameras also have CCD sensors that are 6MP, and those sensors also have that same characteristic. Just with lower resolution.

The CCD sensor is great in good light. This was noted in other cameras that used the same sensor. However, the push to higher resolution and higher ISO capabilities led to the CMOS sensors which are more capable in low light, but it seems (to me) that there's something very special about the older sensor.
