The Pentax K200D is a good starter digital SLR camera, one with a lot of history built into its body.
Its lens mount, for starters, is compatible with K-mount lenses made as long as 33 years ago, giving the K200D a huge selection of lenses. What's more, all lenses attached to the Pentax K200D get the benefit of the K200D's body-based, sensor-shift Shake Reduction technology, allowing sharper pictures in low light.
The 10-megapixel Pentax K200D has a good feel, great speed, features a 2.7-inch LCD, and has a stack of Scene modes to help those new to digital SLR cameras make the transition easily. Extremely fast autofocus means low shutter lag in bright light, and though AF slows indoors, the Pentax K200D keeps working until it gets the focus right, an admirable trait. The Pentax K200D's printed out put stands up to 13x19-inch print sizes, too, with decent 8x10 quality even at its highest ISO setting.
Overall the Pentax K200D makes a great consumer digital SLR. Click here to see our review of the Pentax K200D for more!
