Which one to sell?

I have a K100D and a *1st D.

Both are in excellent condition, but I need to sell one to buy either the K200 or K20 (that's another discussion!). As you all know probably, there are pros to each, like the anti shake K100 vs the two command dials and better flash capability of the 1st D.

I shoot landscapes, street scenes, some macro. The anti shake is important to me, but I honestly have had few problems shooting the 1st D without it.

What are your opinions?

From a quick glance at eBay, the k100D is going for about $100 more than the istD. So, if they're worth the same to you, sell the k100D. You'll have shake reduction on your new camera; two dials is very useful for me; and, as I understand it, the istD has true TTL metering so that'd be great to have around.

Just my $0.02. Cheers!

If I were you, I'd probably sell the K100 and keep the *ist D because of the 2 dials. After using the K10, the 2 dials have spoiled me.

To answer the question of K200 vs K20, go for the K20 (you know you want it). I'm getting close to pulling the trigger on the K20 myself; I just need to sell my K10D to make it happen. The prices are beginning to really drop on it:

me too...

I think since you are upgrading to a camera with IS... why keep the K100d. Keep the smaller ttl capable Ist... that is what I would do. (and I love my K100d)
