A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages.

----

Detail is sharp but smooth, with little in the way of JPEG artefacts.

Plenty of detail can be maintained by the 10MP CCD.

----

Colour and white balance is accurate and punchy with good saturation.

----

Exposure is generally very good, though bright highlights or particularly dark areas can fool the meter.

Can you use old K mount lenses on this camera ?


If so what is the focal length conversion factor ?

The wikipedia English page on the Pentax K200D mentions that, and if you click on the "K-mount" link you have more detailed information about the eventual need of stop-down metering.





Cheers,

What is the shutter lag time on this camera? Which Pentax model has the lowest lag time, accepts the Kmount lenses and is in the $400 to $600 price range.
