Just Gotta Sing the Color and WR Praises

So, as if I wasn't already convinced, I had my trusty K200D and 18-135 WR combo on a Colorado River trip last week. On the exposed raft I gave them casual, but not complete, protection. I like cameras ready for photos. Needless to say, they got completely drenched several times, kept working flawlessly, and I came away with photos with the typically stunning K200D colors.

Yes, I'd like better ISO and focus performance, and will probably get a K5 or K30. But as others have said, if you have a K200D, keep it. I wish I hadn't sold my other one. It's a fine handling, solid camera.

Typical Pentax.

Yep. An' I'm hopin' that ten years from now at least one of my four 200's will still be standing tall in the herd next to my functional, 40-year old Spotmatic and 25-year old MX and K1000.

So far, with about 155,000 clicks between 'em they've been faultless.
