*ist D vs K100DS in raw: Any difference?


I am very happy with my K100DS and it is getting a lot of use. I am considering eventually getting another body as backup. Initially I thought about getting a K20 or K-x and keep the K100DS as backup. But, since photography is a hobby for me (read expense, not source of income) it is hard to justify anything. My question is, been the same sensor, would images from a *ist D and K100DS be the same when shot in raw? I use raw a lot and it occurs to me that a *ist D can be a good second body. Sure more is better but I'm not hung up on the megapixel war.
Any comments on this?

Same sensor, same basic support hardware - yes, should be the same image in RAW (but of course a little blurrier from lack of SR!)
