Pentax K200D Photos Surface

We know PMA is getting closer because the rumors are getting tough to keep up with. Check out all of these purported photos of the Pentax K200D. (via If they’re real, it sure looks pretty. Unfortunately, no additional word on the specs, yet. See the previous info on the K20D and K200D on this page.


UPDATE: More photos on DP Review forums. They all look the same to me. So, either someone has a lot of time on their hands to do some spectacular Photoshopping, or it’s the real deal. I’m banking on the latter.

    I don’t see any real difference between these pictures and the K100D, except for the RAW button and the possibility to use a grip. Most probably there are some internal enhancements, like a pentaprism instead of the pentamirror, DNG as RAW format (option), JPEG+RAW output mode, and hopefully more than 6MP on the chip. But then it would be a K10D ;-).

    Hopefully, Pentax will focus again on their lenses, because the K10D (and K100D for the budget-segment of the market) is quite good already. Nevertheless, innovation in bodies is welcome too.

    Finally Pentax has come out a mid range camera with 10 MP. I have a K100D super camera which I enjoy using and produces very good pictures. I hope Pentax would expand its range of zoon lenses such 18 – 105 mm.

    The ability to use AA batteries is key to me. I want to know that my camera will still be usable, many years from now.

    Good luck finding replacements for proprietary battery packs and/or proprietary chargers — even 2-3 years after you buy your camera.


  1. […] 我们知道新的Pentax SLRs正在开发中。 那么,推测它看起来有点类似K200D,虽然有些技术工业未被官方证实,但是我们相信这款相机应该拥有10MP索尼传感器,顶级的12位图象处理机,并且3英寸LCD—高清晰显示屏。 不少摄影爱好者和PS高手为我们绘制出这款样机的外观图像,让我们拭目以待,官方推出新机后会不会和我们预测的一致。Photography Bay […]

  2. […] Hace alrededor de un mes, empezaron a surgir rumores sobre un par de nuevas cámaras DSLR de Pentax, herederas de los modelos K10D y K100D . Hasta el 24 de enero no se esperaban novedades respecto a estos modelos, pero en los foros de un usuario ha publicado toda una avalancha de imágenes de la nueva Pentax K200D. La calidad de las mismas es tan altas que en mi opinión resulta un poco absurdo pensar que se trata de fakes. En Photography Bay las han recopilado todas. […]
