Not to be rocking the boat. I also love my K20D, but Best Buy has Nikon D200 for $599. If I had to choose again, I'd go for the D200.

Nikon - 10.2MP Digital SLR Camera - Body Only - D200 - Body Only

Good luck with your choice.

Eh? K20D is definitely prettier.

Gee, out of stock due to higher than expected sales or no longer wishing to stock in decent quantities?
Maybe both. I waited for PMA. Perhaps, others did as well and it's a post-PMA phenomenon.

D200 over the K20D? Why? I've never really been impressed by the D200. To me, the D200 vs the K10D would be a closer comparison at that price.

How are the bodies' price even important when you spend 10X as much on lenses?

holding off for now

I know the Nikon D200 is at an attractive price and also offers weatherproofing, but check this out.

Does your D200 leak moisture inside? [Page 1]: Nikon D3 - D1 / D700 Forum: Digital Photography Review

You are not afraid of taking your K20D in the rain, or are you?

Anyway, I am obliged to tell you guys that I will be holding off on Pentax for now- at least till summertime.

I bought new glass for my silly little Canon Xti - 70-200 f/4L IS and will be enjoying it for a while. The lens is weatherproof but the body is not.

One thing is for sure though, I have become a Pentax fan - thank you for this community. I will continue to follow Pentax news, rumors, blogs, etc, and still have it as a goal to become a Pentaxian with a Pentax DSLR.

A K20D and DA*50-135mm combo would be the best offering, especially over the E-620.

If you delve deeper into the forum, you will find that the DA*50-135 is quite possibly the favourite zoom that people have, and I would agree, it is one excellent lens, its hardly off my K20D. Plus, you can still get (just) one of the best fiftys on the market (as mentioned on a lot of web sites) namely the FA50 F1.4.

Just go for the purchase, you will be delighted.
