Pentax K200D review
Jan 23, 2010

Very easy to use but intuitive enough for keen amateurs and enthusiasts alike.
5/5 build quality of the body, Very ergonomic.
Very good and flexible raw modes and files.
Build in shake reduction will work with any Pentax lens ever made (will require bayonet adapter for 67, 645 and m42 mounts). Very good 11 point autofocus.
In my opinion, A better camera than the Nikon D60/D3000, At an even lower price.

Problems:

2 breakdowns!

#1 jammed aperture lever and shutter refusing to fire, but camera still focusing and playback/menus working.

#2 After receiving camera from warranty repair and after 40 shots, Complete malfunction of camera. Nothing working exept for battery meter. Also odd banging noises from sensor shake.

But now after 2 warranty repairs the camera works fine.
