K100D vs K200D for low light indoor portraits

Hi all,

I have been a very happy user of the K100D (together with the 77 LTD which helped a lot) for a couple of years now.

I have the possibility to sell my K100D body at a good price and I am thus looking at upgrading body.

I guess the K200D would be the logical choice.
I am just wondering how the 10 MP sensor would compare with the K100D's 6 MP when shooting indoor with no flash.

This is what kept me away from the K10D since I felt low light shooting would prove better IQ with less pixels.

Any advice is thus welcome to help me choose.

Thanks

Cheers,

Pierrot

based totally on the opinions that I have read here, i'd rate the K DSLRs as follows for low light
K20D > K100D > K200D > K10D

My subjective, untested impression after owning the K200D for a week or so is that it's actually BETTER at ISO1600 than my DS (which uses the same sensor as the K100D). Pixel-peepers may test away, but I'm extremely pleased with the high ISO performance of the K200D, and wouldn't hesitate to use ISO1600 when called for. Your Mileage May Vary

I dont know if this will help, but i'm pretty impressed with the noise performance on my K100d Super. I have no problems using iso1600. Heres some 100% crops from a floodlit football match.
