To buy Today: KORG OASYS 88 OR KRONOS 88?

Ok, so I have some "toy $" to Spend...TODAY!

So.....I have read ALL the forum info on the web, etc. and still have NO definitive choice.....Do I buy a Used Korg Oasys 88 or New Korg Kronos 88???

I understand the "support & updates" thing....but I am looking deeper into the purchase: WHICH ACTUALLY SOUNDS BETTER? (Owners??) Are they the same - FOR REAL?

The Oasys is much purrrtier

School mee!!!! I want to pull the trigger at 4pm CST LOL

I've been checking the Kronos for a while but I haven't heard the 'definitive' on the keybed issue that some Kronos' have.

Have they resolved it ?

I love my Kronos...I played the Oasys and wasn't even TEMPTED to buy it. Not even CLOSE to the same quality for acoustic and electric pianos, which is my bread and butter. New engines in the Kronos make it light years better. Same with drums. There seems to be debate about the "synth" sounds-but, I'm not much of a synth guy.
