No huge surprises here, a virtually identical resolution/detail response from these two cameras (apart from some subtleties we can put down to the different image processors), as we've already mentioned they both use a 10.2 megapixel Sony CCD chip based on the same design but with some differences. Of course the price difference between the D200 and DSLR-A100 buys you a far more robust camera with a full metal body, weather proofing seals, a wider range of features, faster performance, faster continuous shooting etc.
