Wow - K200D is picking up in sales
In reply to ropen, Dec 14, 2009

I was surprised to see the K200D on the list as the 71st best selling system camera (cameras with interchangeable lenses) in Japan. I had to look up the Japanese Yen / US Dollar exchange rate to see what that was about:

  • No. 21 up from last week - Pentax K-x with 18-55 kit (black) = $606

  • No. 71 up from last week - Pentax K200D with 18-55 kit = $412

That's a pretty good deal for a new weather-sealed DSLR. Here in the USA, now that BestBuy.com's Outlet has delisted the K200D refurb for $380 (no longer shown), the best new price on a K200D is around $575.
