The hands-on preview clearly illustrates one of the most overlooked features of the k20d. Which is that it is nearly identical to the k10d externally. this can provide months of the wife being blissfully unaware that you ahve aquired yet more gear.

You'll probably be ok if you pay cash.

My wife knows every dollar that comes in and where it goes. How did I let that happen?

This marketing method has been used for years in some highend audio components. Audio Research stuff has always looked alike. Bring a new preamp or amp home (minus thousands in the wallet) and no one would be the wiser looking at them. Smart plan.
New K200D looks good. Should sell well. A shame the K100Ds is gone. The end of 6mp dslrs.
thanks

My wife would still probably not be aware if I went from my k100d to a k20d, at least from an appearance standpoint. A camera is a camera to her. But she would notice the missing money, and my running around trying all the new settings.
