Actually, all of this has a very weak impact, only.
You can actually observe it using the K20D live view, on a sturdy tripod: with SR on (or with SR off but on an average tripod), you'll see minimal flicker along contrast borders in live view. Knowing how LV is created, this means that there is movement of about 1/2 pixel or so. Nothing you would normally see in the final photos.
Well, theoretically 1/2 pixel blur will decrease *effective* resolution by 25%! So, the 14.6MP K20D/K-7 will just become a 11MP DSLR! :-0

Only if there was no blur before. And only if contrast fell below a threshold were it cannot be surerrected.
