K-7 - Mic Input Options

The K-7 is rumoured to have stereo input I have seen a photo of a port that says mic and here's a photo that floating about in a Russian pentax forum so it's pretty much confirmed:

Now for those of you interested in external mics etc read this: Tips and Tricks for the 5D MKII - PART II - Audio Vincent Laforet’s Blog

There is also a bit about field HD monitors:

The mic port looks photoshopped.

The M in Mic is not all there.

Very good chance that photo has had some PP done to it. I expect it is one or a part of the official Pentax press release photos. They would be touched up prior to release.

It would be foolish of Pentax to not include a Mic input. It would be genious if they included the software needed to digitally link the seperate video and audio feeds. I think the video guys call this time stamping, and I think it is missing on the 5D.
