K200 vs mx1

Should the image quality from the k200 be far better than the mx1. I've taken a couple of pics using both cameras of the same subject and in the cameras screens the mx1 seems better. Viewed both images on a PC screen and I'm struggling to say the k200 is better. Any views more than welcome.

There are lots of variables at play and generally, the larger sensor will be better. Off the top of my head, ignoring differences in JPEG processing, the MX-1's lens might be better than whatever you're using on the K200. It's a very sharp lens

Thanks Adam. I've used the 18-55 kit lens and the FA50/f1.4. Setting the zooms and apertures to the same for both cameras, well, roughly the same focal length wise.
