Isn't the *ist DS now a dinosaur compared to the K200D???
If the DS is a dinosaur, what does that make the Spotmatic? Just call me a caveman, 'cause I use & enjoy both.

The K-7 almost makes it

K-7 130.5 mm (W) 96.5 mm (H) 72.5 mm
vs
DS 125 x 93 x 66 mm
Almost by some standards, perhaps, but that's still basically the same size as the K200D - and a lot heavier. If someone is complaining the K200D is too big compared to the DS, the K-7 is not going to seem an improvement.

Since the deal on *ist DS didn't go through, and after a bit more research and thinking, I have decided to lean more toward the K200D. The larger and heavier body is outweighed (no pun) by its weather sealing, SR and more pixels.

Unless of course, I come across an excellent DS by accident.

I think in the long run the K200D would be the better choice,especially with the few features that you have pointed out.
