debatable, but most will say the Penta-prism of the K10D/K20D is a superior choice of the penta-mirror of the k200D.

Although the K200D is a 96% view as opposed to the 95% view of the K10D/K20D.

Hardly noticeable.

I was wondering does the view finder of the k200d better then the k20d?
I've played around with both.

The answer, in short, is yes. Noticeably better.

I assume you mean the K20D is better than the k200D, not the other way around.

I've owned both the k200D and *istDS (which has the same viewfidner as the K20D). I'd say I can see the difference when comparing back to back. But the K200D is still good enough in practice most of the time, and installing the OME53 magnifying eyepiece helps a lot in the cases where you might wish the K200D viewfinder was bigger.
