Replacement for K200D?
Feb 3, 2010

The K200D was a great camera with it's weather sealing, and almost pro grade build quality. Also it's vast customization.
K-x replaces K-m
K7 replaces K20D
? replaces K200D.

The K200D is the only one out of the K-m and the K20D to be removed from Pentax usa's website. http://www.pentaximaging.com
Local stores now only sell the K-7 and the K-x.

The K-x and the K-7 are closely related but the prices are on far ends of the market!

A local photo shop wants $699 (canadian) for a New K-x with the DA L 18-55mm lens.
The same store charges $1569 for the K-7 (body only).

There should be a new camera in the range with K-x spec. (or slightly better) in a tough weather-sealed body.

cheers!
