From what I have read yes. The interesting thing is that these particular birds are P&W powered. Could it be that engine differences are being put aside in the search for more capacity? How does 777-300ER sound?

Cathay are too desperate for capacity to care too much about what they get. I have not heard anything about how the -200s will fit into the airline, but courses teaching the differences between the -200s (With PWs) and our -300s are being prepared.

Does this might lead to an A330-200 order?

I would suspect that if they were going to order the -200, they would have done so with the newest order. That would make sense to me. But then I'm not in charge of an international airline. :-(

In read a report some days ago that said CX will buy or lease seven new A330-300, with the first one arriving in June or July. They will then operate 19 A333.
A330-200 with PW engines do not sound logical. They will go on fly RR only on the A330.

you hear stories about CX leasing new aircraft like a a340 from ILFC, and now the Korean airlines deal, whyt don't CX just buy new aircraft?

Maybe because new planes are not available in the near future due to Airbus' full order books?

I will correct myself in saying that I am not sure whether the conversion cources are for the 200/300 differences or simply for the PW engines. I have not heard anything official about the leased Korean A330s being -200s, and I will believe it when I see it. However, the Korean deal is confirmed, and as they do not have RR powered A330s, it means that we are getting PW ones. This is confirmed....unless something goes wrong like it did with the Gulf Air A340 deal.

Cathay are leasing the korean A330s because we are short of capacity now. Ordering them direct from Airbus will take forever, and the management are not willing to commit themselves in such a big way for a market that no-one of quite sure of the future of. (That's pretty bad English isn't it!)

It is clear that CX will lease 3 A330-200 from a yet undisclosed airline which is assumed to be Korean Air. The have put these three A332s on the lease market (this is at least said) because of the excellent lease rates at the moment. I have heard, too, that these three A332 will fly with CX for only about 8-9 months so ordering them makes not much sense.
