    Seems like it, but for K200D Super?
    Translation (bad grammar cos of direct translation):
    "The K200D Super announced this time, although it inherited the black color used since ist* DL, but here is yet another innovation, consumers can also chose to buy a model with a silver body."

    Cool. Sliver body to go along with the sliver lenses. I think it will be very attention seeking.
    Let's get rolling :)

    Silver plastic covered with black rubber body covering. Ugh! Ugly.

    They should have made it available to multi-colours to tap the female yuppie market. Make it like an Ipod icon.... Soon you will see them hanging colourful pentax DSLR around their necks in Orchard Road.

    Just did some research on the pentax website.
    From the exact specs, we can be pretty sure its the same K10D ccd that they use on the K200D.

    BTW, I was also looking at the HDR specs and it seems it only appears under "playback" mode for both the K20D and K200D. This feature is not mentioned in the K10D which means its a new one. I can only assume the K200D and K20D basically takes and stores 3 images at 3 different exposure compensation and then only merge it in playback mode. Also,the new range (K10D and K200D feature and enhanced dynamic range that doubles the dynamic range over the K10D! I know its more software rather than hardware changes but the features are appreciated.

    As for those who want to shoot in IR, there appears to be a b/w+ IR mode in the camera. Of course, again this is software processing rather than actual IR filter but hey, that's appreciated too! :-)

    Another feature I like is the ability to take images in raw and jpeg, so we lose nothing. I only wonder if they have improved on the default raw-to-jpeg mode in the K200D so that all complaints about poorer jpgs in the K10D is addressed.

    So you see, unless they push the K10D price down to BELOW K100D Super prices, I think only a K200D will satisfy my upgrade pangs...:-))

    Thanks in advance.

    Yeah...K200D instruction manual is up...

    http://www.pentaxslr.com/files/scms_...00D_Manual.pdf

    yeah finally EV compensation does not disable the auto iso feature anymore

    other than no dedicated focus mode lever for APC and APS, metering mode lever for metering mode, the rest of the functions are pretty much what i need since i shoot raw wb is not an issue...

    The HDR function is actually a filter function (pg186), so i dunno whether it actually take 3 photos and merge them or just simply used 1 photo, duplicate 2 more with difference exposure adjustment and merge them...

    if the focusing and metering is as good as K20D...its time for me to get 1

    I think k200D is in stock in BHPvideophoto. It's also in stock for Amazon!

    Anyone's interested? We could share the shipment charges!!

    I think kX00d series still holds its ground. It's small and light, uses AA batteries, and with all the improvements made that you've have like (Dust/Weather,2.7 inch, same k10d view finder, Sensor clean, SDM, RAW button), it's really sounds like a good deal (but at 50 bucks more than k10d).

    would prefer to see test images/reviews first

    but yeah, on paper it is extremely strong.. the battery life seems phenomenal too, for aa batteries on a dslr/prosumer

Dunno whether are they trained to service K200D

    Yea.. i will wait a bit for real ppl reviews, instead of mags' (likely to be US). But judging from the scores of folks liking the k20d, it's likely to be a hit (k200d).

    Sad though that they took out the 3200 ISO.

    Kevin, from shriro, should be able to hand it..don't think that's a problem.

    K200D used a CCD sensor which is exactly the same as the one in K10D. That's why its ISO range is 100 to 1600 (the same as in K10D) Not that they took it out, it's not there in the first place ...

    K200D vs K20D, I think the main difference is the power souce (4x AA batteries vs dedicated lion battery). The other differences can be easily handled imo. If you prefer using AA batteries, go w/ the K200D. Otherwise go w/ the k20D. I'm sure you can take equally good photos w/ any of the two.

    The viewfinder is different. K200D is using the penta-mirror. Different from K10D which is using pentaprism.

    yeah....lots and lots of reviews are coming in for the K20D but its soooooo quiet for the K200D. I would prefer to buy in Singapore where I can get a warranty...but if shriro does not want to import it, we have no choice.

    yes, that should be the consensus

    for example, when i used the k10d, i could see faint outlines of objects in the sun when i looked through the viewfinder with hoya r72 on

    with my k100d, can only see the sun

    Called Cathay Photo last week for prices quote and also enquired about the K200 the guy told me coming in April.

    ok...I also got confirmation from Shriro's partner that the K200D will arrive end Apr 08.
    I suspect its to allow the current retailers to clear their stocks of K100D supers first.

    I think that's why I am going for the k20d instead.
