7.7 out of 10 (Very good)
“Pentax's K200D entry-level SLR gives a lot of bang for the buck and has better performance than last year's model. Despite low noise and pleasingly detailed images, technically inaccurate colors keep it from capturing the gold medal for image quality.”

Dave's Pick
“--- The K200D is not without its shortcomings: there's the poor low-light metering, the minor pixel-mapping / hot pixel issues, the menu is slower than we'd like, and the buffer fills up quickly with images shot in rapid succession. However, despite its shortcomings, the Pentax K200D offers more bang for the buck than competing systems in this range. It's definitely worth considering if you're shopping for an entry-level digital SLR, and worthy of a Dave's Pick. ”

Highly Recommended (if you shoot in RAW)
“All in all, the excellent image quality you can get out of the camera's RAW files, the build quality and good overall feature-set are enough to let the K200D slip into our Highly Recommended category. Before you now go out and buy one though, make sure you can live without a live-view system and, if image quality is paramount, you'll be willing to shoot in RAW.”
