K10d k200d

Hi, thanks for the info regarding lens' in my other post : )
I was out taking photos yesterday in some lovely gardens open to the public and there were quite a few people around taking photos with their dslr's. I got talking to a guy with a Nikon and told him of my intention of getting the K10D. To is credit he didn't try and talk me around to Nikon but he did ask whether I'd looked at the K200D as well as the K10D I planned on buying ? Well I havn't and was wondering if you guys could tell me what I would be gaining or losing from getting a K200D instead of the K10D ?

I think the K200D may have a better JPEG output - unsure about that though. With the K10D you have more external control options.

Also, K200D uses AA batteries, which may be a good thing, depending on how you use the camera.

Either way you can't go wrong, but I think it depends on what you're looking for - I had the K200D for 3 months and it was great, but I like the external controls so I upgrade to a K20D.

'nuff said !

I use a fuji bridge and an olympus compact sometimes and they both use AA's. No problem with cameras that use AA's but I don't want another AA using camera, that would be a bit of a strain on battery resourses!
My wife uses AA's in her camera too !
Like the K10D the K200D looks to be a really nice camera though : )

thanks for the help, BARCUD
