I recently posted this chart in another thread but it might be of interest here. From a recent article in a major Japanese camera mag. I should probably translate the article too, but its kinda long and I'm pretty busy these days.

Note the Japanese model names. 29 cameras are listed, with 24 pictured. I guess that makes the A200 number 30 in the alpha line.

With a quick look at the chart you should be able to figure out the Japanese words for Minolta, Konica Minolta and Sony :)

An interesting trivia point is that according to this chart it would appear that in the 24 year history of the alpha mount, 1987, 1996 and 2003 were the only years that did not see a new body released. (note where the arrows begin, not where the text appears) Perhaps those were big years for the lenses...
