Can K-7 use contrast AF (for video) with third party lenses?

Im thinking the sigma 24-70/2.8 HSM would be the perfect focal length for video and it has silent AF so you can record sound. But will you be able to use the contrast AF on third party lenses or only pentax lenses?
Cheers

One preliminary review says only manual focus in video mode, but that may change for the final production camera.

This is not true. Just press the AF button for AF.
