From what people say I expected the K20D to be huge, but it feels pretty light in my hand, and it's not much wider or heavier than the K7. It is noticeable, but not bad. If you're happy with another K20D, you could buy your 70-200. I know there is a guy selling one in the market right now, said he's offering a special halloween price if you PM him. It was already going for 610 shipped, maybe you should snap it up.

After some testing. The metering is much better on the K-7 and K-5 than the K20D. Maybe not $850 worth of better.

Thought I would update -

After lots of thought, I ended up buying another K20D. I am very happy with the one I have, and the fact of having the exact same controls on both cameras won me over. Not only that, but I would really be extending myself right now with a $1200 purchase of a K-5.

Thanks for your input everyone - it all really helped with my decision.
