k-r screw motor for af

I am in the market for a backup for my k-x. The k-7 has a bigger motor or something that makes af very fast.
But I want the k-r. Does anyone know if the k-r has the same motor as the k-7?
Or if it is a stronger motor than the k-x?
Appreciated, Gary

The Kx was actually faster than the K7, and I believe there are some comparisons floating around that would indicate the Kr is slightly faster than the Kx is. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with a 'bigger motor' than speed and accuracy of focus, which generally improves with each model release (whether the entry level or top models).

I upgraded from K-x to K-r: yes AF is working faster on the new one. Besides speed also the accuracy is higher. There are also new AF options which make interesting usability for the overall speed (fps priority).

Also AF in live-view is dramatically better.

cheers,
