is the k20d worth jumping up to from the 200d?

I have seen many posts on upgrading - my retailer will give me back 50% on my camera if I upgrade to something better (within 1 year of purchase). Would you recommend me upgrading to the K20D?

"worth" is such a subjective word. Have you looked at the differences ? What is it on the K20D that you want ? Can you afford it ? Would you you be better off buying some new glass instead ?

If it were me I would for sure - battery grip , lens adjustment, dual wheel, more MP, better sensor, etc ... But that is me.

As mentioned it so personal - seach around a bit - there are several threads on K20D upgrades.

If you can afford it, it is worth it. Best of Luck!

I mulled over this for a long time, too. Decided the resolution, flexibility and higher iso (from my k10) was worth the upgrade.

I'm waiting for Pentax to announce the next generation of cameras to decide what to do... The K200D's small buffer annoys me...
