which to sell?

i have the kx and k200.
i want to upgrade to the kr or possibly the k5 but can't have 3 bodies specially at the higher introductory prices

i like my kx for its high ISO performance, fps and the k200 for the top lcd, quieter shutter, WR and GRIP!

which body should i put in the market? kx or k200?

The Kr should have at least as good high ISO performance and fps as the Kx. However, as far as I understand it, the Kr won't be WR, have a top lcd nor a grip. So based on that, and for what you stated you use each of your current bodies for, it seems the Kr would replace the Kx and you should keep the K200D.

I am not in your exact situation, but I would sell the k-x and keep the K200D. The k-r does pretty much everything the k-x can do, while the K200D has features, notably WR and the top-LCD and grip shooting style (e.g. for flash work), that are different from and complementary to the small and light low-noise/high-ISO shooting style. As you know already, camera JPEGs can be much better out of the k-x than K200D, while up to ISO 400 or 800 there isn't much difference to the RAW quality or what you can achieve in pp.

You can replace your K200D with a K7 (or K5) when the price drops enough; that way you will be making another upgrade without compromise.

Obviously it depends on which body you're going to get. If I were you I'd sell the K200D if I got the K-5 and the K-x if I got the K-r. That way you always have a weather-sealed body and a smaller body which you can use depending on the situation.

Edit: Actually, I would just sell both and get the K-5. You can't shoot with more than one camera at a time anyway.

thanks for the inputs.
actually, i need 2 bodies since my wife uses the other body (mostly the k200)

a double upgrade would be nice, but realistically, that's not going to happen.
decisions, decisions...
