For Dslr without focus assits lamp, when you use an external flash on either K20, K200D, K10D and K100D how fast can it focus in the dark?

Actually I think all Pentax cameras from K100 to K7 have the focus assist feature. Its just different execution.

K7 is the only one using a seperate green LED.
The rest uses the existing flash to "pulse" at the scene so that the AF module can lock in focus.
Very true. Even the K10D had this. You just have to remember to unlock the popup flash. Canon's SLRs used this technique as well instead of a dedicated LED light like Nikon did.

Yep ive tried that pop up but it takes too long to focus sometimes you will miss a shot

I don't know the answer, but would suggest starting a new thread to ask this question - your question has nothing to do with the subject of this (long dead) thread.
