K200D Burst of RAW images?

Can anybody inform us about speed of writing in buffer of K200D. How many frames?
Is it only 4 RAW or higher?
I've heard that some users can shoot more RAWs with fast SD cards. At least 5-6.
And that K200D is faster than K100D.
Is there information about buffer full rate and next burst?

Good question! I read that the k200d has the same buffer as k100d and k100d super.

I'm banned at dpreview. I can't ask.
There are several users here. Ask them, please.
One said that K200D has very fast writing 4 RAW on SD card, faster than K100D. All like K10D.
But I didn't undestand how about next frame.

K200D buffer

This was posted at DPReview:
My K200D will do 12 shots in 10 seconds, so 1.2 fps when set to continuous Lo. I have A-Data Turbo Class 6 cards. When set to continuous Hi I get 5 in 2 seconds (2.5fps) and 13 more over the next 8 seconds (1.6 fps). These are far from scientific tests - just watch the second hand and press and hold the shutter for 10 seconds.

Write speed seems to be about what they advertised - sometimes I get 4 quick shots in the buffer, sometimes 5. The AF seems fast and accurate to me. Hunts a little in very low light which is not a surprise.
