K10D vs K200D

Besides the remote control function what are the basic differences between the two cameras?

An often discussed comparison Will.
Here are some previous threads addressing this:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/47738-decision-tim...lp-please.html
and the list goes on...

But also have a look at the Camera Review database for more information about the two cameras.
Hopefully all this will help.

Ergonomics. The K200D is slightly more compact, but you can really see/feel the difference when a K10D is fixed up with a BG-2 (battery grip)

K10d has more juice for af motor.
k10d is better sealed.
k10d has worse noise.
k10d has two wheels and a pentaPRISM, even when trying out i always feel that the bigger viewfinder is worse covered - that is you must harder push your eye against it to see it all.

I am not claiming below tests are the final words, but it gives an idea at least.

From dpreview:

K200D:
Pentax K200D Review: 28. Compared to (Resolution): Digital Photography Review

K10D:

DR

K200D
Sensitivity Shadow range Highlight range Usable range
ISO 100 -6.0 EV 3.0 EV 9.0 EV

RESOLUTION
Pentax K200D Horizontal LPH * 1950 * 2200
Vertical LPH * 2050 * 2300

K10D

DR

ISO 100 -4.5 EV 2.8 EV 7.3 EV


RESOLUTION

Extinction

Pentax K10D Horizontal LPH * 2000 * 2300
Vertical LPH 1800 * 2500

SO!! Whats the juice? ignoring color accuracy considering they are similar since they both uses CCD sensor, K200D has wider DR but K10D is better in resolution.

Any objection?

I am under the impression that dpreview uses jpeg for their comparison, and K10d's JPEG engine suck... so that might be why the DR seems way lower on the K10d. CMIIW though!
