Yes... That's... Yes...



Calm down!

Did I mention I'm a student - no money, I've spent an entire year saving money for the K10, no more buying for a long time...

Oh yes, I apsolutely love it, hand-held 0.3'' shutter speed - sharp photo, you just gotta love that...

Well, I finally have some cash to spend on a new DSLR, since I made up my mind about 6 months ago that is has to be a Pentax, here's the question:
Should I buy a new K200D or a used but in good condition K10D?
I have the K10D (now sold), the K20D and the K200D.

Handling of the K10D is better. The 2 dials, buffer, pentaprism, etc. It's basically the same as the K20D minus the sensor, liveview and some minor features.

But the K200D is also a very nice camera. If you shoot JPEG, the K200D benefits from the improvement that the K20D has in this regard. The IQ is also improved vs the K10D, especially at high ISO (slightly) and the VPN. VPN affected almost all K10D up to some degree. In normal conditions it's hard to see it but as you lift the shadows or underexpose a little at ISO 1600 it's hard to miss. The K200D is also more suited for people who prefer auto/scene modes and don't fiddle too much with the controls.

I'm selling my K200D because I already have the K20D and for a second camera I prefer something smaller (it would be the K-m).

I GOT IT

Pentax K10D with 900 shots, one year old, perfect condition,pentax bag and 2gb extreme III card. Looking forward to some spare time and good weather to see what it's capable of...
Wow, thats awesomely low shutters. Glad to you finally got your hands on your k10d!! I had to wait a long time for a k10d to be availiable on KEH.com and happy to say that same night it was made availiable, I just so happen had a hard time sleeping and decided to surf the net and saw the k10d just popped up on KEH.com. Sold in under 5 minutes. And now loving it!!

If im not mistaken, the k10d was a hybrid type from the k20d and the k200d right?? Parts from the k10d was used to make both the k20d and the k200d??

Something like that, K10 was first, then they put most of it in the K200 and upgraded some stuff to make to K20.

Thanks Mr. B!! That and a few other things that I remembered when I was doing my research on wether to buy the k10d which i proudly own now or the Canon 40d or Nikon d80.
