Almost same time of the day, suns out in both, lenses about equal if anything 16-85 is better, position different, but the 200 is so much better.

It's the depth rendering of those earlier sensors - wonderful.

I have good memories and bad memories of the K200D. The bad memories are the processing of some RAW images. Yesterday I reprocessed some images and found it depends on the lens used. With my DA12-24mm the K200D gave images with better colour than with the DA16-45mm. With my DA12-24mm the blue coloured sky was a pleasing blue, but with the DA16-45mm the blue coloured sky turned slightly greenish, resulting in a soft blue colour.

But the good memories win. If you ask me whether I would like to replace my K-3 with a K200D, I will answer no. Being used to the K-3, the K200D will be rather primitive, I think.
