Any K200d owners using the DA* zooms?

Any K200d owners using the two DA* zooms and if so how is it working out? My gear spends time on a mountain bike and around salt water/boats. I had a D300 for a couple of months but too bulky and complicated. The size of the K200 looks great. A sealed 17-70/4 and 50/1.4 for low light would be perfect.

Hi Jerry,
Don't have any of these products ...yet....I'm still *ist DS & DL.

If I was starting out today (and had the $$$$) I would go this way:

If $$$ were limited but could stretch a bit : K200 & DA* 16-50 & 50-135, an alternative would be to drop off the 50-135 and add in a Tamron 70-300....(cheap, so not a lot lost if it gets damaged)

Ultimate kit: K20D & DA* 16-50 & 50-135. (note: these are the only weather sealed lens on the market today)

Thank for the reply. I got a hands on with the K20d today. I enjoyed the ergonomics much better than the D300 I had. It is such a nice camera. I would love to get my hands on a K200 to check out. I am leaning toward the K200 and DA* zooms right now.

Hi Jerry,
I have handled both in store. The K20D is "bigger", but gee ....its a marginal difference between the two.

I went with the K200 and both DA* zooms. I am looking forward to the new kit.
