what should go k10d or K-r

I absolutely need to sell one of these either a K10d with battery grip and two batteries or K-r with two batteries both with kit lens 18-55

Please help me decide which would be the better one to keep bearing in mind I also have k5 with battery grip and my primary use for the cameras is wedding and people photography

your reasoning on this difficult decision will be greatly appreciated.

Easy, the K-r for the IQ, etc.

Considering you have a K-5 I'd drop the K10D. The K-r is much more different than the K-5. At least more so than the K10D. I could see situations where I'd want a K-r over a K10D, but none where I'd want a K10D over a K-5.

Does that make sense?

Easy, keep the K-r. It has better high ISO performance (for the weddings) and it is less bulky/heavy than the K10d (assuming you are using it as a backup/2nd camera)
