The Alpha A200 shares the same 10.2 Megapixel CCD sensor as its predecessor, but squeezes it into what Sony describes as a smaller and lighter body. Read more.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A200 Review

Reader Score: 8.56 (out of 10)
Review (Summary): "The Alpha A200 shares the same 10.2 Megapixel CCD sensor as its predecessor, but squeezes it into what Sony describes as a smaller and lighter body. Like the two previous Alpha DSLRs, the A200 still features built-in stabilization which shifts the sensor to counteract camera shake. Like other built-in sensor-shift systems, the benefit is enjoying stabilization on any lens you attach, although the downside is not being able to see the stabilizing effect through the optical viewfinder as you compose your photo. ...

Ultimately few existing A100 owners will be upgrading to the A200, as there's no truly compelling reasons for doing so - instead they'll be eyeing-up the A300, A350, or a bigger step to the semi-pro A700. But anyone who was about to buy an A100 - or indeed any entry-level DSLR - should definitely add the A200 to their shortlist. It may not have the bells and whistles of Live View or more than 10 Megapixels, but you may not want or need them.
