The Pentax Optio K200D is a 12 megapixel digital SLR aimed at novice photographers taking the leap into the realm of dSLR photography, but even more advanced users will appreciate features like in-camera shake reduction and dust removal systems. Users can take the amount of control they are comfortable with, from full manual exposure settings, to selecting a scene mode and letting the camera make the finer decisions, to a full automatic mode. In-camera RAW conversion allows for accessing your images when you may not have RAW conversion software at your disposal.

Features:
  • 12 megapixel CCD sensor
  • 11 point autofocus
  • Pentax lens mount
  • 8 scene modes
  • in-camera RAW conversion
  • anti-shake
  • anti-dust
  • uses AA batteries
  • penta-mirror viewfinder (approx 96% frame coverage)

it's not on the Optio line.
it's the 'pentax k200d' not the 'pentax optio k200d'. the 'optio' part is only used in Pentax compact cameras.
also, it's 10mp, not 12.
