K200D vs K10D : image quality, AF speed


I consider buying a SDM 50-135 and a new body to replace my K100D.

Who could compare both the K10D and the K200D, regarding

- image quality (I shoot in RAW) ?

- AF speed ?

- any other main reason to choose (I already know the K10D has a better viewfinder)

Thank you for your help

In RAW format, image quality should be identical, as the two cameras use the same image sensor.

AF speed on K10 will probably be faster due to bigger battery.

Bigger is not better.

AF speed is the same when using 1.5v batteries (Lithium, or Alkalines at the very start). Rechargeables slow it down a bit (1.2v).

I think the K200D is a bit smaller. Other than that it might have better SR, and it has focus adjustments, larger/better screen, 1100 pics on one battery set, better Dust Removal, low speed burst mode, but you loose on the RAW buffer (5 frames less).
