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.

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.

It may not have the bells and whistles of Live View or more than 10 Megapixels, but you may not want or need them.
