K50 SD Card size

Tech question here: What is the largest SD card usable by a Pentax K50? I usually use a 32 but I cannot find them now.

Theoretically up to 2Tb, i.e. any SDXC, SDHC, or SD card. I believe the largest card currently on the market is 512Gb, with a 1Tb card currently being ironed out.

32Gb or 64Gb would be my recommended capacities for the K-50.

64GB was my default on K-30, which is older than K-50

Thanks, everyone. I was thinking that 32 was the max. 64 is much easier to find.
