Honestly, itīs the lack of grip more than anything that keeps me away from the recent low-end Pentax bodies. It makes no sense - a grip is another item to sell to the user & make more profit from. As long as they donīt do a Canon & start making each grip incompatible with the previous body in the line, or start making those absurd ones that have a huge stick-out connector so that you canīt store it in a small space.

Even if all it had was a shutter button & extra batteries (which is all the K200D grip has, really) it would be great.

That looks pretty damn good for 1250. I hesitate to set the K200 above 800.... but I should mention the main reason I let the K-x go is that I also have a flash unit. The AF360 flash makes a big difference. More often than not the K-x was still not capable of very good images in low light indoor without a flash, despite the massive improvements at high ISO.

Of course I'm finding the flash just as hard to learn as the camera. I somehow thought I could just mount the flash and all my indoor picture problems would be solved.... not so. I'm getting there though.

Hi guys, I love the KX and the K200D very much. I mostly use the K200D for outdoors and the KX for indoors and when I know the weather is going to be good. The K200D is so rugged that I can use it anywhere.

I don't understand the KX not being good in low light at all. I use it for concert shooting all of the time and it competes well with cameras costing 3x as much.

Gary Stafford UK Pro concert shooter uses it as a back up for his GX20 as well.

Couple of my samples
KX - Low Light ISO 5000

KX - Low Light ISO 6400

K200D Low Light 1600

K200D Low Light 1600

I didn't use flash for either one of these shots.

Hope you enjoy
