Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It has really good image quality and performs well. It is reliable and has a long battery life.
Bad points:
It is really difficult (badly positioned) to use some of the controls, i.e. moving from AF to MF is uncomfortable. Some of the settings take a while to get to know, once you get to grips with the camera it is fairly simple to use.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent ergonomic design and features. Very good value in its class.
Bad points:
Build quality of the rear switches — same as on lower-range models and I fear may prove unreliable. Auxiliary mains lead expensive (non-standard socket) and difficult to obtain.

Grahame , Oxford Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Almost everything is good. The K10D was a really outstanding camera and this improves on it with a new technology for the capture of the image a brighter viewfinder and several other features like lots of seals to protect it from adverse weather
Bad points:
None really except that I wish it were made of light alloy instead of polycarbonate as I am very frightened of dropiing it as my k!0d suffered this fate and the case broke un was not repairable

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

10.2 effective megapixels
10.2 megapixel CCD sensor offers superior image resolution with maximum control over noise.

PENTAX-developed body-based Shake Reduction
With body-based Shake Reduction, the PENTAX SLR system will stabilize your shots, providing maximum flexibility with no compromise in optical quality. It increases your handheld shooting shutter speed range by 2.5 to 4 stops for blur-free pictures, and is compatible with every PENTAX lens ever produced.

Dustproof, weather-resistant body
The PENTAX K200D body has 60 seals to reliably protect the inner components against humidity, moisture and dust particles. Add the durability of a fiber-reinforced polycarbonate body and a stainless-steel chassis, and you can keep shooting even in harsh conditions.

Auto Picture, Scene and Sv Modes
Expect the right exposures with the settings you want. Auto Picture mode automatically calculates photographic factors to pick the best picture mode. The Scene modes offer a selection of eight modes specialized for alternate conditions. Plus, Sensitivity-Priority AE (Sv) mode is designed to automatically select the optimum combination of aperture and shutter speed for a user-selected sensitivity.

2.7 inch LCD monitor
A 2.7 inch high-resolution, wide-view LCD monitor with a 160 degree field of view of your subject in 230,000 dots allows for more precise playback.

Pentax Real IMage Engine (PRIME)
The PRIME image processing engine maximizes image properties and allows custom adjustment of image parameters, such as truer color tones, a wider dynamic range, and natural-looking high ISO images.

Increased control with Expanded Dynamic Range
Enhanced Dynamic Range mode gives 200% more dynamic range, which brings out detail in the highlighted portions of your image while maintaining detail in darker areas.

Dust Alert function
Dust Reduction and Dust Alert features eliminate the need for time-consuming retouching by sealing against dust and determining if and where any dust remains after the system is activated.

Full backward lens compatibility
PENTAX has manufactured over 25 million lenses in the last six decades; all DSLR bodies offer backward compatibility with every one.* Whichever lens is used, whether the most recent lenses or a classic screwmount, it will faithfully capture the image desired.
*With adapter for screwmount and 645/67 lenses.

Image Capture
Advanced 16-segment metering and 11-point AF, with 9 cross sensors, ensure perfectly exposed and focused images, even in the most difficult lighting conditions.

Custom Image modes
Custom Image modes, with six preset options, offer superior control of how the PRIME processor develops images, and can be further modified to meet your needs. Get beautifully processed images in any shooting condition.

Advanced White Balance
In addition to a wide range of preset white balance options, take advantage of full manual control. Every preset and manual white balance setting offers fine adjustment control, giving you powerful options to tune the white balance exactly as you need it.

Custom Functions
The K200D offers 23 custom functions with 52 individual settings, ensuring that you can fully customize the camera to suit your individual needs.

AA battery compatibility
Approximately 1,100 images can be taken when using AA size lithium batteries due to their energy-saving design. (Four Energizer lithium batteries are included with each camera.) Plus, AA power can be found anywhere in the world.
