Compared to Alpha 100 - key differences

The A200 is from a specs point of view not a very different camera to the A100 that it (along with the A350 and A300), replaces. The sensor specification is identical and many of the A200's features could also be found on the A100. The main differences are the larger screen, ISO 3200 and High ISO noise reduction on the A200. The new model does not feature the A100's Depth of Field preview though.
