Pentax k-1 and 14 bit raw

Is 14 bit raw enabled by default on the k-1?

AFAIK, yes - not even sure it can be set to anything else.

Thanks! That's what I was thinking too but just wanted to confirm.

Yup, currently Pentax raw files are always shot at the highest available quality. There are no settings for that.
