Not positive, but I thought the 100d also did not do the SDHC cards.
From what I've read SDHC card support was added with the last firmware release for the K100D,

K100D Super has always supported them.

There are some K200D advantages compared to the K10D. I posted these elsewhere, so sorry for posting again, but here are some advantages:

*Improved Shake reduction system
*New Image processing pipeline (?less VPN)
*Customizable Image Modes and White Balance
*Improved RAW button
*Adjustable Noise reduction (off, weakest, weak, strong)
*Improved in camera image processing
*Improved Digital Preview (can save the preview if desired)
*New Dust Alert (mapping)
*2.7 inch LCD with 160 deg viewing angle (no mention as to whether or not it can be adjusted to the same degree as the one in the K20D)
*Enlarged and improved menus including scrolling text
*Dynamic Range Enlargement
*AF adjustment (haven't seen it confirmed if this for up to 20 lenses as it is in the K20D)
*AA batteries with available AA powered Grip
*Slightly less weight and bulk
*Presumably more digital filters available
Well, all of this is nice (AA batteries are disadvantage for many though), however superior K10D ergonomics and handling (two e-dials, direct access to AF-C, exposure metering modes, AF point selection, bracketing) and better viewfinder are much more important (for me ) than all those small little upgrades.
Announced K200D price is more than K10D is now. I would go for K10D, not K200D.

K10d or K100d super

Either get the K100D super, and save your money so you can later buy a k20D (you'll want it, or more lenses, or next year's camera... or... ) or get the K10D, and as was said above, enjoy all the buttons on the outside. Having had both cameras, I almost never pick up the K100D anymore... K10D is just so much nicer to use!

Depends what do you intend to use the camera for.

If you need high iso, then definitely the k100d/super. Otherwise try to find a k10d. IMO a superior camera.

The problem with the 100D is that it is ACHINGLY slow to do anything, it really it glacial to save to the card, review an image or display a histogram.

Frankly, for $300 or so used, get a K10D

K200D for no good reason other than Sv, weather sealing and 4 extra megapixels.
which is good enough for me.
