Pentax K200D review
Mar 1, 2009

I have had this camera for 3 months. I had bought one earlier, butit died on me and I had to return it. The replacement seems fine though. I am coming from a K100D and so far this camera is good. It feels more solid, the focus seems a bit more sure, and its just overall a better camera........ except for the noise.

Problems:

The reason I gave image quality a score of 4 is because of noise from ISO 600 and up. This is a problem that I never had big issues with with the K100D. I could go upto ISO 1600 and still get decent prints. On The K200D, you get a lot of colour noise that is a bit tedious to remove and deal with in the shadow areas and sometimes in the midtones as well.

But other than that its a great camera
