I look forward to the DX200 as it has to be at least as good as the DX100 and I am sure, will be better and I assume, half the size.
That's not what happened with the dx80, unfortunately. This may be a matter of opinion, but as weird as the dx90, and I use the dx90 for my main dap, he dx80 didn't seem to measure up in important areas, like UI, and sound. Just has more storage. I imagine access to materials may have changed and they got lucky with the dx100. However, I am hopeful for a better sounding dx200
