K20 vs GX20

I was looking at the specs for these two cameras and noticed that the Samsung lists different AF specs. It has the same Safox VIII, but lists its effective range as EV -1 to 18, where the K20 lists it's range as EV 0 - 20. If this is accurate maybe the Samsung has a little better low light AF, which many on this forum are asking for. Just a thought. Just looking out for my homies.

GX-20 is supose to offer between 3 and 9 fps ? Maybe there is some hope for the K20D regarding this as well ?

At DPReview the Samsung is listed as 3 fps, with a 9 raw picture buffer.
IOW 1. not adjustable.
IOW 2. smaller buffer than K20D
Could be a typing error at DPR.

yes is strange, in the press specifications on dpreview they say

With the GX-20, continuous shooting at 3 fps (frames per second) is possible; up to 9 fps; giving the user the best chance to get a great picture.

maybe instead of fps they wanted to say raws

If the Samsung version is listed as 9fps then perhaps theres a possibilty that the 20 fps on the K20 is configurable through a firmware update.

Yeah, I noticed that. Also I read somewhere over there that someone from Pentax admitted that the 22bit ADC really only used 12bits, so the possibly the new 14bit one in the K200D/K20D is an improvement? Would be nice for those of us with the old 6MP models considering the K200D if it actually did lead to some IQ improvement over the K10D.
