Pretty much all the major camera manufacturers had their wares on display tonight at Digital Focus, the pregame event to PMA
. We got our hands on Pentax's prosumer DSLR, the K200D
. Pentax definitely makes a competitive case for itself here -- lots of buyers just getting into a DSLR don't have "investments" into glass from other vendors, and the features on the K200D look great: 10.2-megapixel CCD, 2.7-inch LCD, Shake Reduction in the body, and dust/weather resistant seals. We're curious to see if the "soft" JPEG processing from Pentax's other DSLRs still remains.
